Colossians 2:8

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."NIV

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."KJV

Are we doing whatever is necessary to make sure we are not being subtly swayed by good sounding beliefs and preaching? The world is full of those who's logic and smooth tongue can distort the truth and lead us cunningly away from the important truths of our Lord. When we get caught in this kind of deceitful trap, we are taken from our true faith, hope, and work for the Lord and led away to a place that feels good and satisfies our human wants. That's right where Satan wants us to be, farther away from the things of God and His truth. If we stay alert and wear the armor of God, we won't be led astray by this deception.

Heavenly Father, we have failed You so many times because we have not been alert and ready to bring down the temptations of the evil one. Fill our hearts and minds with the critical necessity of being alert and armed so that we don't get led astray into deceit and false teachings. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
