God's word states, in Romans 6:16
" Know you not that whom
you yield yourselves servants to obey, you are slaves unto whom you obey." You could take this to the Lord and ask him to give you understanding of this warning. If you have been walking on a path that is deceptive, the end results
will be serious. Your diligence re the path you were led to follow as a child, when you lacked understanding, will not be an excuse either. The scripture warns over and over "
Let no man decieve you by any means:"
and "Be not decieved". Don't think for a minute you couldn't be decieved. It is stated that Satan decieves the whole world in Revelation 12:9. Please read 2nd Thessalonians.
It is a small book, I suggest especially 2nd Thessalonians 2 : 2,3,and 4.
Jesus came to set the captives free, to open prison doors, to make the blind to see." It is possible to be spiritually blind while carefully following your religion, ie, if the word of God is neglected and your action and beliefs are unscriptural. It
is up to us to study the word carefully, and not depend on the word of any leader who presents himself as a man of the cloth, a teacher, an expert. You will stand before God's throne alone one day. Your teacher or leader also will stand alone and answer to God. "If any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God. "
" Neither did I learn it nor did any man teach me, but by the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ."
" The words are even in thy mouth."
" I will give you a mouth and wisdom
and all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay or resist."
Thank you Jesus, that" all the promises
of God are Yes and amen." God bless you abundantly spirit soul and body (even to, the very DNA), mind emotions and will, and to the frontal lobe that has been influenced by serious sin or lies, in Jesus mighty
