Today in our small group we discussed the story at the beginning of Acts 5 where Ananias and Sapphira attempted to deceive the Holy Spirit and fell dead. It was a good lesson and there were many comments of discussion.
I wanted to write today because this very thing ties so closely with what I have been writing about. Ananias and Sapphira were tares or counterfeit Christians. How do I know this? Because their hearts were revealed and their hearts were not turned towards the Father, but that Satan had filled their hearts.
