A synonym for deceive is fool. Candidly, I have marveled at how evil has masked its lies with half-truths such that fundamental long held truths and principles are being abandoned or forgotten such that Isaiah 5:20 has manifested today before our very eyes.

Never have there been so many weak-minded weak-willed people that the demonic is able to manipulate. The best deceptions have copious amounts of truth. But today it seems like the demonic is even able to use less truth to spout even greater lies and people are so deceived they not only believe but defend the lie. It's like a spiritual Stockholm Syndrome. Don't know what Stockholm Syndrome is? It' is a mental disorder. Their thinking is screwed up. They've been fooled.
