There is no telling how many times I have read this verse, but today a part jumped out at me, and I felt I should share with you.
Many of our lost loved ones are deceived someway or another. Either they do not see their need for a Savior, perhaps because they are such good people, or they do not believe in the infallibility of the Word of God, or they have bought into some part of the current ideas on the creation or homosexuality or God's judgment. Or perhaps they do not feel they can ever be forgiven for the sins they have committed or that God would answer their prayers. Deception comes in all shapes and sizes. But Job 12:16 address that: "With him is strength and prudence. The deceived and the deceiver are His."
And that's that!
