2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.
I have spent a few days thinking of this scripture, allowing it to tug at my heart. God would cause them to be greatly deceived?
But God isn’t causing them or anyone to be deceived. God’s permitting us to be deceived when we want to be. He’s never going to force His will upon us.
If our desire is to be gods, like a god, then God will allow that. If our desire is to be God’s children then he will lead us.
He is a God of order and compassion.
