What deceives Christians is the application of the Word.

Matthew 13:18-19 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. The Bible is like any book, bought at any street corner but becomes the Holy Bible, when you leave it. Leaving it means being guided by the Holy Spirit. Why is it that man and woman of God stand on the pulpit and denounce a certain way of preaching when we are all reading the same book, following the same Master? Acts 8:29-31 The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.” Philip ran over and heard the man reading from the prophet Isaiah. Philip asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” The man replied, “How can I, unless someone instructs me?” And he urged Philip to come up into the carriage and sit with him.


When you preach without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you are just giving information hence some will come out and say the sermon was boring. Holy Spirit must guide you in what His people thirst for. Don’t say wha people want to hear but what will change their lives.

John 14:26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative-that is, the Holy Spirit-he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
