Our Memory Verse for this week comes from Isaiah 47, where God addresses Babylon in her delusion that "no one sees" the evil she commits.  In our third Devotional on the topic of Delusion, we want to look at why "good" people do bad things.  Clever people can do evil in the darkness...

“Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false” (2 Thessalonians 2:11 ESV). In this verse, God doesn’t say He will MAKE people believe a lie—He will ALLOW them to believe a lie, if they want to.  We saw last time that it...

Posted by Nathan Warner on

“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.  Amen” (Romans 1:25). We often think delusion comes against someone’s will, don’t we?  We see the poor chump caught in a game...

“Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool” (Proverbs 28:26a). Pastors and ministries have failed generations by preaching different gospels than The Gospel. This is no slight matter for Paul declared, “even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel...

Memory Verse (September 18-25)

Our Memory Verse for this week comes from Proverbs, where we see that we should not trust in our own minds, but that we must put all our trust and hope in the grace of God.

Berean Lamp Devotional 44 - The Word That Grabs Our Attention

Posted by Nathan Warner on

“O land, land, land, Hear the word of the Lord!” (Jeremiah 22:29) In a republic or a democracy, there are many, many leaders who give competing, dissenting words on any given issue.  As a result, we probably don’t pay as much attention to the voices in our government as...
