It is so sad that in this life that we live in, nobody can really affirm that he/she hasn't been deceived severally.
Deception comes from different people, by different means and in different forms.

Most people have been involved in one form of deception or another in order to accumulate wealth or get just money.
At home, in the society, in the church, in politics, e.t.c. deceit are rampant.
There is deception in every area of human endeavour which make it looks as if 'there is no truth in the world'
If there was no deception, the world would have been a better place

Right in the home, many parents deceives their children and wives deceiving their husbands and vice versa.
Up till this day, so many fathers have no child of their own because the wives have committed adultery with another man, so the child at home is another man's child.
That is why it is always said that “its the mother that knows who the father of the child really is”

In the church many so-called man of God would perform miracles with the power of demons, but claiming they are of God.
Life has gone this bad, even into the church.
No wonder Jesus christ foresore this when He said in mark 13:22 that;

“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to DECEIVE...”

When nation deceives nation, that is exploitation of nation by nation.
It is so disappointing and pitiable that Africa are in this undeveloped state just because of deceit and exploitation from some so-called developed nations

In our society today, the popularly called 419 wouldn't have been if not because of deception.

The worst of it all is deceit emanating from the politicians.
Prior to the election, they will come out with various promises in their manifestos, giving the citizens a sigh of relief. But on getting their, they will refuse to heed to the demands of the populace and keep to their earlier stated promises.

If we can reduce deception to the barest minimum, then the world will be a better place for you and me but its very difficult. For the bible says in Jeremiah 17:9 that;

“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
