Deception in the Marketplace

deception (n): act of causing someone to accept as truth or valid what is false or invalid; to dupe, fake out, fool, misguide, misinform, mislead

The NKJV of the Bible mentions “deception” or “deceive” 31 times. From the enemy being the father of lies (John 8:44) to his attempts to kill, steal and destroy (Join 10:10) anything good, the Word powerful teaches us to be aware of the deceptive ways of the enemy.

3 Paths of Marketplace Deceptions

These deceptions come in three ways. First, they come directly from Satan.  As marketplace impacters, we can overcome the enemies direct deceptions “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11)

Second, deceptions can come from both non-believers and even from believers “for such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:13

Finally, we can simply deceive ourselves, so “let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.”  1 Corinthians 3:18
