4 And [de] this [touto] I say, [lego] lest [hina me] any man [tis] should beguile [paralogizomai] you [humas] with [en] enticing words. [pithanologia]KJV-Interlinear
4 I say this in order that no one
may delude you with persuasive argument.NASB
responsibility in this life, is to God.In that responsibility, God mandates you to
be responsible in all aspects of life.
However, there comes into
the picture the world with all of its excuses.And remember this for certain.Any argument promoted by the world view, is an excuse and nothing else.
The beguiling aspects
of the world encumbers everything from indifference, to plausible arguments
which are used to justify whatever it is that you believe, or want to believe,
or want to be your truth.
This is the typical
excuse for doing whatever it is that you want to do in life, rather than being
responsible.You want something and so
you justify it with some form of argument. I need it. We need it. It is for the children. And so forth.The argument is entrenched into your mind such that any other priority,
any other responsibility is swept aside, even ignored.
Some folks don t pay their
bills, others don t do their home work for school, others
do not attend to their marital responsibilities, and so forth.Society in general dismisses its
responsibilities when doctrine is lacking, and the special interests, whether
business or unions or cultures, or whatever, make their own interests greater
than what may or may not be good for everyone.And they think nothing of the repercussions of their actions.Why is California on the verge of bankruptcy,
with all of their wealth?Huge
government pension plans, huge government runaway spending programs, huge
People actually do not
believe that there will be any repercussions, at least none that would be their
fault.If anything goes wrong, it is
obviously someone else's fault.
When Bible doctrine is
not real in your soul, then you are open to almost any form of persuasion.You can be fooled easily, because you set
yourself up for being fooled easily, so much so, that you don t care whether or
not you are being fooled, while you do not believe that you can be fooled.You simply convince yourself and that is
And who is at
fault? Fool me twice
And unfortunately, God
has to bring the harsh realities into your life by means of devastating
disasters, before you will open up your eyes and see your error.
This is bad enough for
a single person, or a family to run into hard times, but it is really bad when
an entire nation is heading off course down the wrong road.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
