Have you noticed that many people who are deceived regarding God's truth are actually very loving and kind people? Some of them don't believe in God; others are "believers" who don't believe! But, they are still lovely people. That's where we can easily be misguided. Because they are nice we can think they are right!

However, truth has to be determined according to God and His living Word. Satan knows he cannot deceive us with blatant evil. He comes as an angel of light. He makes his philosophy look pleasant, nice, and wise as he did in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6). Deception is so close to the truth.

2 Corinthians 4:4 says, "The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not." When we do not believe, we give a foothold for Satan to blind our eyes. I am always challenged by Paul's statement in Romans 3:4, "Let God be true, but every man a liar."

This is the bottom line. Do we believe God and His Word? If not, what are we believing? If it doesn't line up with Gold's truth, it is a lie! Only God is truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first."

May God save us and our children from falling away from truth. Dear mother, one of the greatest tasks of your high calling of mothering is to infiltrate and penetrate your children with God's living Word. The Word of God, richly filling our lives, and the lives of our children, is the greatest deterrent to deception.

Believe God, or believe a lie!

Love from Nancy
