Christian, Beware Of Fake Preachers

Christ did not send us out to extort, manipulate, blackmail or instill fear.

Sadly & unfortunately, there is so much of those in our churches today. 😟😟😟

But Jesus already knew this would happen therefore it is not suprising that many eloquent, finely dressed scripture quoting preachers are out there.
Read what He said:

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves”.
Matthew 7:15

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many”.
Matthew 24:11

But it is the duty and responsibility of every Christian to be able to discern and distinguish the FAKE from the FAITHFUL.
As we are told:

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”
1 John 4:1

CHRISTIAN, BE WISE!

My Response To London Stabbings Not Good Enough – Sadiq Khan

SADIQ Khan has admitted his response to the wave of stabbings in London was “not good enough” as he re-opened his war of words with Donald Trump.

The capital’s Mayor once again blamed budget cuts for the 23 per cent increase in knife crime this year – saying he was “not excusing criminality” but said the Government needs to “to step up and help us”.

Speaking to the BBC, he also attacked the US President after Mr Trump used a world-exclusive interview with The Sun to say he is responsible for the terror attacks in London.

Mr Khan defended allowing a blimp of the American leader as a baby to fly over the city during this week’s visit by him to the UK.

He told The Andrew Marr Show “it’s not my job as the mayor to censor the views of Londoners and others”.

The Labour politician also said he understands why critics call Mr Trump racist, and again hinted that the reason he is criticised by him is because he is a Muslim.

But he was also taken to task over the sharp rise in violence in the city he presides over, with host Mr Marr telling him: “When you were elected as Mayor you said you were going to bring down violent crime.

“Since then violent crime and stabbings have soared.”

After trying to dodge the question and claim things were not that bad, he finally admitted: “It is not good enough, we have got to make sure we take action.”

However he once again tried to deflect blame away from City Hall to Whitehall, saying: “But I will tell you this, what doesn’t help is over the last eight years we have lost over £700 million.

“Police officer numbers have gone down and we need the government to help us in this regard because I am doing my bit in London.

“We have invested from City Hall £140 million in police, in a new violent crime taskforce, which is getting knifes off our streets and making sure we arrest those carrying knifes.

“The context is though, £140 million versus £1 billion worth of cuts and police and crime commissioners, police constables, Home Office civil servants all accept there is a link between a cut in police forces and an increase in crime.

“I am not excusing criminality but we need the government to step up and help us.”

Harry Uzoka Was Killed By A Jealous Rival Over A Girl, Court Told

Brit-Nigerian model Harry Uzoka was stabbed to death by a less successful rival in a row over a girl which intensified on Instagram, a court has heard.

The renowned male model, 25, died on the pavement outside his home in Shepherd’s Bush, west London, after he was knifed in the heart.

The Old Bailey was told that he called George Koh, 24, “a fake” on Instagram and arranged a fight after finding out he claimed to have had sex with Mr Uzoka’s model girlfriend, Ruby Campbell.

Their relationship deteriorated after a French model, who had previously been in contact with both men on Instagram, arrived in London in late December last year, the jury was told.

The court was told that to her surprise she learnt that Mr Koh “had something of an obsession” with Mr Uzoka, with whom he apparently no longer spoke to because he had sex with his girlfriend.

Koh: jealous, less successful and obsessed

“Koh then added that Uzoka was a bad man and a liar. And so it seemed that admiration for another model and his success had turned to contempt,” the prosecutor said.

The jury was told a “confrontation” was arranged in Ollgar Road in Shepherd’s Bush following a series of phone calls and messages on WhatsApp and Instagram after Annecetta Lafon told Mr Uzoka of Mr Koh’s claims.

Prosecutor Richard Horwell QC said Mr Koh, along with Merse Dikanda and Jonathan Okigbo, both 24, were in possession of at least three knives, including a machete on January 11.

Mr Uzoka and his flatmate, Adrian Harper, were armed with dumbbell bars, but they fled when they were confronted with knives.

Mr Harper got away, but Mr Uzoka collapsed on the pavement outside his home after being stabbed in the heart.

“It is not difficult to work out which side won. Uzoka and Harper were outnumbered and bars stand little chance against knives,” he said.
