      Dec 6: I will help to inspire others through the struggle, to save others from making the poor decisions I've made in my marriage and with judgement of those I called friends. Never say never because you never know what struggles you will face in life. Good people find themselves in difficult and unfamiliar situations. Have faith, pray for peace.

      WILL YOU BE DECEIVED? Deceive means to mislead by a false appearance or statement; delude. But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent (2 Corinthians 11:3). Eve knew the truth however she considered the words of the serpent and seeds of doubt were planted in her heart. She began to question what she knew to be true. Wrong appeared to be right. After the fall, the lives of Adam and Eve were NEVER the same. What if one moment of pleasure involving the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and/or the pride of life changed your life completely? Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons (1 Timothy 4:1). We cannot allow the seeds of doubt to enter into your hearts from the music, television, video games, movies, etc and accept wrong to be right when we know the Truth of the One, True Living God, Jesus Christ! Know the Truth! Obey the Truth! God bless you all!
