Isaiah 9:16 ” Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray.”

Elsewhere in Isaiah, God laments, “O My people, your guides lead you astray; they turn you from the path.” (Isaiah 3:12)  It’s almost like the blind leading the blind…with all of them wandering around in the dark.  So how can we guard ourselves from this?  The answer is discernment, wisdom, and sound judgment, based on personal knowledge of God’s word.  No one will be able to lead you astray if you know the truth, and no one will be able to turn you from the correct way if you acknowledge that only Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
