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.
