We live in the day of super hype. Advertisers make out the goods that they sell to be almost magic in what they are capable of doing. We live in a day when technology can make anything look like anything they want to make it look like. I am pretty sure that they could take a picture of me, doctor it up using technology, and make me look handsome. Almost everyone knows this, but still many people buy the hyped product just in case it really lives up to its billing, which it never does. There is stuff to guarantee that you catch more fish, lose weight, get ripped, up your IQ, get rich, run fast, and on the list goes. Most of the hype is so oversold that it is absurd and ridiculous, but still the masses fall for it, and spend good money on “magic”. The devil and his demons are always doing this with what we believe to be true. 1 Timothy 4:1-2 says, “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons”. Do you want to be duped, fooled, sold a bill of goods, made to look like a fool? There is this spirit in me that does not want anyone, especially the devil to fool me, get me to believe something to be true that is not. The problem with the “doctrine of demons” is that if you buy into it, it will influence your behavior. The lies of the devil control our culture, they are everywhere, so if you go against them you ate not simply just going against the absurd falsehoods of the “Kingdom of Darkness” , you are going against all of society around you. But that is the way it is, the day of super hype, magic formulas, easy and quick success. Be wise, be cautious, always take the narrow hard way, read the Bible everyday, pray, get lots of good counsel.
