You are innocent, but ...

When I was asked to give back the money that have borrowed, I told this man that I will give him on Tuesday. He is forest ranger. He lend me 5000 rupees. I thought that I can give him because a finance company promised me to lend me 10,000 rupees. When I went to this finance company they told me that they have no money and asked me to come after a week. I found that I am in trouble. I understood perfectly that this company has cheated me. I returned back to my home town Ongole. Walking on the roads. I have been making sure that the forest ranger is not on my road. One day I was at the railway station and he is there. And he saw me. I cannot escape now. He approached me and said, 'You cheater, why did you deceive me'. I do not know what to say. My question is "Was I deceived or did I deceive?" Both are correct. Actually I was cheated and now I appear a cheater? I am in a position to look for justice but they are accusing me. No way.

We are cheaters or deceivers. Not becasue we want to but because we were deceived and in result we become deceivers. You preach something you believed. You are innocent. Later you realize that you were deceived and you already deceived people. You have deceived -may be your church, your children, your friend or a relative. God has given them to you. It was not your intention to deceive but you did it. The only way to escape from this blame is to be alert, wise, discerning and constantly learning. You have been busy. You are ignoring to learn spiritual things, and you became ignorant. There are many areas that light is not focused. Those are the areas where thief like to hide. He has been there because you never looked at that area. He feels comfortable there. That is where you can be deceived because you are ignorant in those spots. You are not only to learn but also to excel.

When Jesus said you are a light, then you are a light. But if Jesus says you are the light of the world, then you were given a job and leadership. You cannot sit because you dont know something.

 "Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because [there is] no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land."
-Hos 4:1

 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."
-Hos 4:6

 "For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings."
-Hos 6:6
