I have been deceived by people many times when I have opened my home for them as a gesture of support and help. Believing them to be true Christians, I had poured out my support, love and help. But when I got to know the truth about them: that they lived a life of sin and convinced me as being born again in Christ, it was hard to digest. What pained me more was the fact that other believers in Christ who knew the truth much before I did concealed it from me. Instead of saving me from being used by the deceivers, I was allowed to continue my work of brotherly love.
But thanks be to God who is always there to help those who truly follow Him wholeheartedly. As the Word of God says in Luke 12:2:- (NASB)
“But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”
God brought it to light every time somebody tried to deceive me and my family.
It is bad that Christians who ought to stand for the truth and righteousness cover up others’ sin, instead of revealing and openly rebuking it. A true child of God will never indirectly support others’ sin by covering it up, but rather will correct the deceiver by warning them reminding them of the truth.
