We're going to have to agree to disagree.
People who are deceived believe their decision is the righteous one even in the face of glaring evidence to the contrary... thus, they are deceived:
1.(of a person) Cause (someone) to believe something that is not true, typically in order to gain some personal advantage.

Revelations 12:9 explains that the whole world will be deceived.
I don't believe anyone who professes an active belief in Jesus Christ while attending church weekly (or more) deliberately acts in a way that is contrary to Christ's teaching. It wouldn't make sense to continue the facade.
They have been deceived into believing that Christ desires that they have whatever they want without any effort or consequence. This is Satan's message. He is the great deceiver and father of lies. His is the path which leads to destruction. Those who are deceived don't know it because... they are deceived.

I simply can't take it at face value that you actually believe what you're saying.
In all of this you seem to forget that we have been given free will in all things and that free will gives everyone the ability to choose to do either right or wrong.

Revelations 12:9 explains that the whole world will be deceived.
That chapter deals with a "time to come" and unless you believe that that time has actually come then you've just admitted that your whole argument is bogus.
So do you believe that the "time to come" mentioned in Revelations has arrived?
