Fear of deception has opened the door for a tragic movement among believers.

Is that an accurate picture? Jesus made a frightening statement regarding those who hold to Bible study Vs. experience:“You search the scriptures, for in them you think you have life; and these are they which testify of Me.” If our study of the Bible doesn’t lead us to a deeper relationship (an encounter), with God, then it simply is adding to our tendency towards spiritual pride.
