I love the TV show called “World’s Dumbest Criminals” (I know but I like to see dumb people get arrested.) Recently I saw a story of drug dealer name Daron. The police had surveillance on him for over a month and came with an arrest warrant to pick him up. They knocked on the door and asked, “Are you Daron…?”
Daron replies, “No, my name is Herbert Spinkleman.” Or some ridiculous similar name.
The police officer then looks at Daron’s forearm and points to his tattoo. “You have you name Daron tattooed on your arm.”
“No that’s my girlfriend’s name Da-Ron.” He replied.
You can’t make this stuff up! He was trying to fool the police pretending to be someone else and his name was tattooed on his forearm! Then he denied it was his name! Priceless.
Daron tried to pretend he was someone else but his true name was evident. Many people do the same thing. They say they are Christians but the name of Christ is not on them. Christian means “little Christ”. It’s like saying “Jesus Jr.” you look like your dad.
Many people call themselves a follower of Christ but the name tattooed on their arm is “liar, porn addict, judger of others, thief, fornicator, gossip” etc. They try to fool people but hypocrisy is evident to most.
Jesus said, “Why do you say you love me but don’t obey my commandments?”
We know that many people will be shocked when their lives end because they will say didn’t we do all these “Christian things for you?” and He’ll reply, “Depart from me, sinner. I never knew you.”
Don’t be like Daron. Don’t try to fake out Jesus because you’ll only fool yourself and you also will be taken away in chains.
