Beware The Deception Of The Experts

August 15

“Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust
and does not respect the proud,
nor such as turn aside to lies.”
Psalm 40:4

It’s a hard thing for many to do — to get one’s eyes off the proud and those who speak lies.

Think media — why is it that we put so much trust in what the media tell us, even though we know they are furthering an agenda?

Counselors – they’ve been trained to lead people into “feel good” thinking, building up the ego, leading them to concentrate on self and how self can be pleased.

Professors — perhaps the most dangerous of all – they deceive the young and foster in them a false world view. When a young person graduates from college he has been thoroughly brainwashed in the philosophies of the world – which have become for him a worldview of deception.

Instead, find out what God has to say. You can’t put your trust in both because they present opposing views, they are from opposing kingdoms. The world speaks well, they are very convincing …but they are wrong.

True wisdom and true guidance can be had only from God who created you. He knows your future and understands your past. He is the only one ABLE to truly guide.

God gave us his Word in the Scriptures, intending that we should read it. From his Word one will find the truth, the guidance needed, the right way to proceed.

Get yourself a Bible and READ IT.

“…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,
whether the gods which your fathers served (false religion)
that were on the other side of the river,
or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell (the world.)
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15

Choose for yourself this day.
