My Insights from the Bible
Understanding Spiritual Truths
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Cor 2:12-14 ESV)

How to tell fake Christians from real
In Paul's letter to the Corinthian church we read how the Holy Spirit given to Christians reveals God's truths and wisdom. These were decreed by God even before the creation of the world.
The truth about salvation, about His plan for a coming sinless world and the work of His Son here on Earth has been made known to His people - those who follow Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
And the imparted truth of God's wisdom is one way we separate true Christians from fake ones. Those who are not real Christians often look authentic to the casual observer but can be easily spotted, as fake, by those endowed with spiritual wisdom. Fake Christians understand little of what they should believe or do, and their lives show little or no Christian content.
