1 Thessalonians 2:3 For our exhortation did not come from error or uncleanness, nor was it in deceit.
The exhortation Paul spoke of was the gospel of Christ. Error means deceit leading to fraud. Uncleanness means impure morals. Deceit means subtility, craftiness, guile. None of these words describe the gospel of Christ! There were lots of doctrines spreading across the world, none were like the gospel. Deception is a strange thing, you don't know when your being deceived unless you have truth to uncover it. satan is the ultimate deceiver! Jesus will never operate in deception. All cults operate in deceit because if they spoke truth, you would never follow these wacky, kooky, absurd ideas they have. They are lower than snake oil salesmen. Im so greatful for Gods word, leads me through the darkness in the light every time.
