Is Good Really So Obvious?

Is Good Really So Obvious?

Video John Bevere The early church leaders repeatedly warned us about about deception. Jesus Himself warned that deception would be so cleverly concealed in our time that even the elect could fall prey to it. Can we treat those warnings lightly? Can we brush them off, assuming we are above deception and can instinctively discern good from evil? The good news is that God is not trying to hide His best from us. He’s not in the business of pulling…
