I John 2:18-19 ~ The Characteristics of False Teaching and of a False Christian
"The spirit of Satan behind the world’s system is antichrist. Its allurement is meant to draw me in and take me away from the things of Christ mentally and emotionally. That might seem harmless. But if we understand that the world’s system is antichrist, it is not just a no-no for a Christian. It is not just a command in the Bible. We must consider - do I really want to partake in something energized by a spirit that opposes Jesus Christ my Lord? Do I want to leave my close intimate relationship and fellowship with Jesus Christ and give myself over to something Satan has designed to take Christ's place in my life? The answer should be no. But sometimes we do not see it that way."
