How to use counterfeit in a sentence?

  1. Mark Harris:

    It is the great counterfeit. That's why we've got to be so careful of political leaders who somehow just like to speak of it as one of the great world religions. Ladies and gentlemen, it is not, in right here in Revelation 13, can't you see where we're moving ? Because in Revelation 13 there is a counterfeit death and there is a counterfeit resurrection.

  2. Ehsan Sehgal:

    My question is to the World and States and Nations that, would you recognize, accept, and allow on the ground of freedom and human rights; If I set up a fake The United Nations If I organize a bogus The White House If I fabricate a fictitious 10 Downing Street If I establish a counterfeit, The Moscow Kremlin If I institute a false The European Union If I build up an illegitimate the Roman Catholic Church If I create such other phony institutions for deceiving and fooling all the genuine ones? Sure, your answer will be as it is impossible, such an answer carries authentic logic, but why then mostly entire Europe, the United States, and Canada stay silent on the matter of a fake Mirza Ghulam Ahmadi Qadiyani as Jesus and his followers who claim themselves as real Muslims and they build Mosques to falsify and deceive the real Muslims. Factually, they are neither Muslim nor Christian nor a sect of these two recognized religions; they are just a false religious gang for their evil practices and motives. The States and Nations of the world should ban that religious termite, and stop them from misuse of true Islam, and creating Mosques to fool the Muslims. The world should take action and decide regardless of the political privileges and needs for their power before the fake Jesus ride on the minds of the Christians since he is neither real Jesus of Christians nor Muslims

  3. Samuel Johnson:

    The supreme end of education is expert discernment in all things--the power to tell the good from the bad, the genuine from the counterfeit, and to prefer the good and the genuine to the bad and the counterfeit.

  4. Charles de LEUSSE:

    We do not counterfeit his own signature, but his nature. (On ne contrefait sa propre - Signature, mais sa nature.)

  5. John Martin:

    A kilogram of fentanyl wholesale is about $3,500 to $5,000. The pill press, let's say you buy it for about $1,000 and the die for $100, that's not a huge investment. You get the binding material ... on the dark net, and you can start making these pills, so there's huge profit to be made on these counterfeit pills.
