See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8
Do you know anyone close to you who has turned their back on God? By this I mean they were once was 'on fire' for the Lord but now due to whatever influences have entered their lives, are behaving differently and believing lies? If it is your adult child it is very hard to understand. We know evil is out there and Satan loves to snatch the word out of a person's heart.
Don't be fooled because bad company corrupts morals it says in 1 Corinthians 15:33. All you can do is continue to stay in the word and turn off sources of confusion such as the nightly news. Continue praying fervently for yourself and for others in your life. Don't be fooled because the enemy is real and he is waging war to try to get people off the path that leads to Christ.
Stand firm, pray, read the word daily and run from evil. Don't nag those in your life as only the Holy Spirit can bring change.
PRAYER: Lord help me never believe the lies of the enemy. Help me be gentle to those who are being lead astray and help me speak the truth in love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
