"How can people be taken in by someone like him? I just do not understand"

Because it's easier to let someone else do the thinking and just sit back and be told what to believe.When certain men insert themselves between that which "is a discerner of the thoughts and INTENTS of the heart" (a heart which we do not fully know and is deceitfull ABOVE ALL things and desperately wicked!)and those coming to God with their truck load of baggage then bad things can happen.When we take up the Sword of the Spirit the first person it slays is the bearer!The deceitfull (above all things) and wicked human heart knows this and would rather a steady diet of carnal commands.Where itself can remain in control,judging and weighing things the same way it always has,better that than death.

Jesus said believing was WORK.

Guess I learned to think for myself from all the reading I have done since learning how to. I learned to decide for myself what was right and wrong. Grew up going to church 3 times a week. When I was in 5th grade, we could memorize verses or chapters of the Bible. If we did so many, we got a Bible. In high school, the students led a devotional and said a prayer. People today do not read like I did, so they hae no idea what is true and what isn’t. They just take the word of some character on a power kick. Is that why there are dems? It seems they have no idea of how to decide the truth. They want to be spoon fed. Am I making any sense? It is 4 here.
