Merchants are very much aware of the problem with counterfeit money during the Christmas season. It is the perfect time for a thief to pass bogus bills because of the confusion created by such a busy time. Customers are scurrying about and everyone is wanting to be served immediately. It is controlled chaos at best.
I'm told handlers of money in banks are trained to spot counterfeit bills by handling hundreds or thousand of legitimate bills. When you slip a bogus bill in with the real bills, it sticks out like a sore thumb. Makes sense right?
How much more valuable is your belief system in Christ? What is truth? What is counterfeit? You will find it difficult to spot the counterfeit without being exposed repeatably to the truth. God's Word is the truth. It is your responsibility to consume God's Word if you expect to spot the fake.
As in training to spot counterfeit bills, you must expose yourself to the truth of God's Word continually. It is in the continual immersion that the evil one's lies are exposed. Now you know truth. The responsibility to act has become your own.
