1 John 2:26 (KJV)
These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
The apostle speaks of the seduction so matter-of-factly that it must have been happening at the very moment. John took proactive and immediate measures to stop the work of seduction before it had time to work its wickedness.
I pause to identify the character of Seduction:
It is subtle and often difficult to see
This is especially true of the seduced.
It is flattering and appeals to the ego
Attention given, even by one who should not give the attention is none-the-less attractive.
It is sinful
No one is seduced into the right. The very nature of seduction is to lead away from the right.
It is destructive
Seduction like all sin when it is finished leads to death.
Those who are lost are no less seducers today than they were two thousand years ago. They are more varied and perhaps more brazen now than ever before. Anyone who knows the Lord should be happy that there is someone to step in and stop the seduction before it causes damaging consequences to one’s faith.
