From the beginning the enemies of God have tried to deceive the children of God. It is most tragic, when these enemies are in His church.
It is important to recognize that the first people to hear Jesus' birth announcement were lowly shepherds, isolated and mistrusted. And they were blessed by their response to the call.
As these times grow more perilous, as many seek other alternatives, the follower of Christ must cling to God's Word. And the preacher must be more diligent to bring it.
