Series: Ephesians: Our True Identity
Don't Fake the Genuine

Passage: Ephesians 4:25-32
It is spelled ‘faux’, but it is pronounced “foe”. It is a French word that means “fake”. Manufacturers sometimes put that word in front of something genuine to spin the truth, as in “faux leather” or “faux fur”. It sounds better than saying “this is a cheap, plastic version of the genuine article”. As the Apostle Paul ends the fourth chapter of Ephesians, he warns believers not to slip into wrong behaviors and thereby practice a “faux faith”. This passage is one of the most practical in the Bible that instructs us how to behave as genuine believers in ways that honor Christ.
