    Is it possible to be going through all the motions and be in the wrong spirit ? Not the Holy Spirit . perhaps the spirit of ant-christ that the bible warned of ...

    if so then many could be deceived and not know it .

    I also agree Willwe & this evil has been with humanity in all ages & in various forms. As for those who embrace Christianity, there can be a rigid belief of prescribed dogma with the absence of the Spirit's Presence & Unction. We see this in many denominations & cults.

    When man leaves aside God's Word & attends to his own interpretation or accepting of another's without searching the Scriptures, then the Holy Spirit is not active there. But when we come humbly before God & His Word, open to & praying for His illumination, the Word given will be made clear to our hearts & excite our spirits. And yet when there's no affirmation, we need to be humble enough to leave the matter open & waiting for that illumination. Unless we spend time in the Word & prayer, can we expect that our hearts will receive heavenly instruction & not the deception of the evil one?

    But the Lord is rich over all, He understands our infirmities & limitations & He by His Spirit will guide us aright if we're truly seeking knowledge & power to apply it to our lives.

    Yes, unfortunately, I believe it's possible that many (as in most) will be (are being) deceived because they simply turn their backs on God's Commandments and believe men's words over Jesus/God's own WORDS.

    John 14:15

    "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

    Those who ignore God's WORD in return for the promises of man, and a so-called easy way to heaven can't end well.

    Matthew 7:14

    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    God Bless.
