Our world is filled with all kinds of vices and hardened men who give in to them. There are men and women that pain means nothing to, so they gladly dispense it from their armory of sadistic tendencies that will cause the ears to tingle.
These men litter our prisons, correctional homes, and slums where drug culture is the groove and all manner of crimes are birthed and carried out.
It is easy to blame them and label them as heartless, however at the root of all these vices and evil is the art of deception.
Sitting on the slimy throne of deception is the devil himself, dishing out deception endlessly, for there is nothing about him except lies and deception.
The adulterer was deceived. The armed robber was deceived. The prostitute was deceived. The cheat was deceived. The crook was deceived. The rapist and the raped were deceived.
Refusal to turn a new leaf when confronted and challenged is also strengthened by deception. And note, it is one thing to be deceived, it is another thing entirely to be self-deceived; that is, a person deceives himself.
Well. It doesn’t matter, so they say. Do I tell you something? It doesn’t matter plus it doesn’t matter equals IT MATTERS!
Eve was deceived!
Abraham was deceived when he took Hagar!
David was severally deceived!
Solomon was deceived by strange women despite all his wisdom. And so were many others.
Today, the devil has not changed his tactics, to deceive you, to cause you to believe a lie. He tells you sleeping around means nothing! Everybody is doing it. When you fall for his deception, you unlock a series of regrettable events. That will not be your portion!
There is only one way to deal with deception. Get into God’s word. Bury yourself in it. Read it. Study it. Meditate on it and you will see that only truth sets free, deception and lies binds!
