Larry Tomczak: Understanding Deception for Non-Dummies

Recently, I did a commentary "Understanding the End Times for Non-Dummies," playing off the "For Dummies" series that has sold over 250 million copies helping people learn important subjects in an easy to understand way. This second installment deals with the dangers of deception which Jesus warned was the primary sign prior to His Return.

No genuine Christian has the luxury of taking this subject lightly. How a person spends this life and where they'll spend eternity depends on being discerning at the end of the age. We've got to learn to discern because "discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong but right and almost right." – Charles Spurgeon

Satan is a master at deceiving people, especially in obfuscating the beautiful and simple message of the gospel. "But I fear that somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve through his trickery, so your minds might be led astray from the simplicity that is in Christ" (2 Cor. 11:3).

"You Must Be Born Again"

It's been 50 years since the release of "Clap Your Hands!" (a book I wrote that miraculously reached over a quarter million people, leading multitudes to a genuine "born-again" experience that Jesus stated was required in John 3:3-7). He told this to a very religious and moral theologian!

I still hear from people who say the book helped bring them out of the deception of believing that being baptized, going to mass and confession, doing good deeds and following all the rules of the Catholic church was what enables a person at death to merit placement in purgatory to hopefully accumulate enough grace to one day earn a spot in heaven.
