Misguided Religious Interpretation

“Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name”
- (Luke 21:8).

Thoughts for Today

There is an underhanded way to sell products called the bait-and-switch method. Here is how it works: A retailer entices a person to purchase an item. Yet, when the consumer gets ready to buy the product, he is told that there are no more in inventory.

Immediately, the deceptive retailer tries to sell the consumer another product that is inferior to the one first offered. If the consumer buys it, the retailer makes a handsome profit, while the customer is swindled.

In the same way, false teachers use biblical words to capture attention and gain the trust of someone seeking Jesus Christ. They use trusted terms to lure people away from the salvation message of Jesus Christ. Essentially, they are the masters of the bait-and-switch method.

Deception is a principal tool used by the enemy. Names such as devil and Satan are significant words because they mean “deceiver” and “slanderer.”

Like the false teachers in the New Testament, those who seek to deceive us through misguided religious interpretation help Satan achieve his goal of keeping us from establishing an intimate relationship with the Lord.

It has been said that Satan is not fighting churches, he is joining them! He can do more harm by sowing tares than by pulling up wheat. How do you become spiritually “in tune” to God? Ask Him to make you sensitive to His voice. Refuse to listen to or to spend time with ideologies that do not line up with the Word of God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Please help me to be spiritually tuned in to your voice, blocking the lies of the enemy.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
