DE CEIVE’ 1. To make (a person) believe what is not true; to mislead, to cause to err. Webster’s Dictionary
* if a person is deceived, He doesn't know it.
* The only cure is the truth.
* The only truth is the Bible.
* The Bible says most Christians have already been deceived.
Christianity has fallen away from God! Most of the organized church system has wandered so far from the truth that it refuses to even listen to the truth. The apostle Paul warned us this would happen. He said:
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires; and will turn away from THE TRUTH ...." 2 Timothy 4:3 NAS
The Psalmist defines "the truth":
"And THY LAW is THE TRUTH." Psalms 119:142 KJV
In both the business world and the religious world the formula for success has become: “Give the people whatever they want!” The people do not want the truth, they want their ears tickled with “smooth things”. Therefore, it has become unpopular for the churches to teach that we must obey God’s law and give up our lives on this earth to the service of Jesus Christ. It may be unpopular, but that is exactly what Jesus asked for, our life and nothing less. He said:
“… but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.” Mark 8:35 KJV
He gave us no options; we must surrender this lifetime to Him, no matter what it may cost! The first act of our surrender is to obey God’s law, just as Jesus said:
“…but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17 KJV
Sadly, many who have turned to Jesus for salvation have been led away from obedience to the Ten Commandments by false teachers who tell them that they may remain a “carnal” Christian (one who disobeys God’s Commandments) and yet still be saved.
ALL WHO ACCEPT THEIR LIE WILL BE LOST!
