      Acts 20:30- Some of your own men will come forward and say things that distort the truth. They will do this to lure disciples into following them.

      Ephesians 4:14- Then we will no longer be little children, tossed and carried about by all kinds of teachings that change like the wind. We will no longer be influenced by people who use cunning and clever strategies to lead us astray.

      Colossians 2:4- And this I say, lest any man should deceive you with enticing words.

      1 Timothy 4:1- The Spirit says clearly that in later times some believers will desert the Christian faith. They will follow spirits that deceive, and they will believe the teachings of demons.

      1 John 4:1- Dear friends, don't believe all people who say that they have the Spirit. Instead, test them. See whether the spirit they have is from God, because there are many false prophets in the world.

      2 Timothy 4:4- They will reject the truth and chase after myths.

      2 Peter 1:16- For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

      2 Corinthians 11:13- For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

      2 John 1:7- For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.

      Titus 1:7- Since an overseer manages God's household, he must be blameless--not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the circumcision group.

      2 Timothy 4:3- For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.

      Matthew 24:11- "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.

      2 Peter 2:1- But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

      1 Thessalonians 5:20- do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;

      Revelation 2:2- I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false;

      The Scriptures are very clear about deception in the Church both then and now. Therefore we must test all things to see if we are being led astray. Concerning deceivers the Scriptures use the words ''Many'' on several occasions. The warnings are written to protect us from the false one's and the false way. So we should pay particular attention to testing using the Scriptures as the eternal Guide. It is a sad reflection of the Church today that many embrace the words of a boy while ignoring the warnings from the Lord.
