Deceiving Yourself

Saint, are you aware that Scripture says you can deceive yourself?

1 John 1:8   If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Galatians 6:3   For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

James 1:22  But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

1 Corinthians 3:18   Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.

1 Tim. 4:1    Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,

James 1:26      If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

Now that we know that we can deceive ourselves, let us examine ourselves according to Scripture to see if this is happening, and repent. 

May He be glorified!
