“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” 1 John 5:19 KJV
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV

“This great dragon-the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world-was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.” Revelation 12:9 NLT
“Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ” Matthew 4:8-10 NIV
“When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!” “Yes,” he told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” Luke 10:17-20 NLT

“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14 KJV
All the verses above prove that the whole world system is ran by Satan the Devil, and he rules everyone in it except those who have been set free by Jesus Christ. (John 8:31-32) That’s why the world we call reality is so fake. It takes after it’s master; the angel who so desperately wants to be God. This world is filled with every imagined and unimaginable falsehood. Let’s examine just a few.
Our political system is fake. The religious system is fake. The medical system is fake. The entertainment industry that makes people look more beautiful than they really are is fake. The news isn’t real. The banking system is fake. The economy is fake. Your food is fake. Your water is fake. Jewelry is fake. Artwork is fake too. Knowledge that people are given about the origin of life and our physical world; that it all came by a big bang, all fake! Explosions don’t create meticulous order. They produce chaos. Men today are fake and women are fake too. Hair is fake. Body parts are fake. All the supposed history in the history books of the world is fake. People we praise as heros are really villains, hence fake. Your friends are fake. So are your enemies. Contracts are fake. Insurance policies are fake. Craftsmanship is fake. The education system is fake. Wars are fake. Not that people don’t die in them, but the reasons we’re given for having wars are fake. I can go on and on and on. This entire world system of things is fake! It’s garbage! And no wonder, it’s ran by Satan the Devil, the epitome of fakeness.
THE REAL LIFE
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV
There’s the real life! It’s all found in Jesus. Whoever believes in Him has eternal life! Whoever does not will perish forever. There is nothing fake about Jesus. Of course there’s a whole lot of hypocrites out there who claim to represent Him. But nothing is fake about Jesus Himself. He’s so real that even His enemies strive super hard to prove that He doesn’t exist. And as far as the many religious hypocrites out there that claim Jesus with their mouths but dishonor Him with their lifestyles, Jesus said:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ ” Matthew 7:21-23 NIV
Jesus foretold there would be many religious people claiming to belong to Him. But, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” is what they will hear on the day of judgment. So don’t pick apart Jesus Christ because of what these fakers do. Get to know who Jesus really is for yourself by studying the Bible accounts of the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. See for yourself if there is any fakeness about Him.
For those of us who strive to avoid all forms of hypocrisy and are convinced of who Jesus really is I leave you with this final encouragement:
“Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News. Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself. For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for him. We are in this struggle together. You have seen my struggle in the past, and you know that I am still in the midst of it.” Philippians 1:27-30 NLT
