Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
 
                                                                  -John 14:6

The Difference Between
the Saved, the Lost, and the Deceived

THE SAVED CHRISTIAN lives under grace with absolute assurance of their reconciliation to God because of their faith in Jesus Christ and His free gift of eternal life.
 
THE LOST person is lost to God because they have not accepted Gods answer for covering their sin nature.  The lost represent a broad range, from the rebellious who seek their own way of dealing with reality in lieu of any religious standard or base, to seekers who sense a terrible void and are looking for some better way to fill their nagging sense of separation from their Creator. 
 
THE DECEIVED person believes they have found the truth and is usually blindly committed to the belief system they have chosen.   Websters Dictionary says to deceive  is to make (a person) believe what is not true; delude; mislead, to err.
