DIVISIVE PEOPLE-SMOOTH TALK-AND DECEPTION! This is the generation we live in and Satan adjusts his methods to continue his work. Let us also remember that the real fight is not against other people but against the spiritual forces behind them. So let us make sure as Christians that we do not stoop to using Satan's methodologies in our battles against the sinful problems in this world. The religious, political, educational, and social life of this nation is in a turmoil. Right is now wrong and wrong is now right. The language and words are changed to mean whatever deceptive people want them to mean. Religion is in BUT Christianity is out. True Biblical knowledge is at an all-time low. Cursing is in and prayer is out. Social media is in but The Truth is out. History is changed to reflect what society wants it to be NOT what it actually was.
This advice from God's Word concerning this turmoil is just as valid today as it was in the first century: "I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil," (Romans 16:17-19 NIV). Remember: to stand on God's side is always the right thing to do whether Satan is using religious people, “professing Christian people,” or non-Christian people to spread the Devil’s work in this world.
