Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”
1 Corinthians 15:33
This particular blog series has been on my mind for over a month now. I have struggled with it, but I finally committed to tackling the subject head on. The topic for this particular series is deception. Mainly, the lies that are promoted by the world. My focus will be on lies that are told to males and females throughout their entire life.

2 Corinthians 4:4
