Live it.

Having served in the computer industry for years, even I am amazed at the creativity of technical savvy people. Malware, ransomware are just two of the new terms for common thieves to break in and steal. Software provides the means by which Internet highway robbers can steal from unsuspecting computer/smart phone users. Typosquatting is perhaps the most creative trap yet.

Entering a partially correct hyperlink in your browser will more than likely find a site created by evil people trying to make you pay, sometimes literally, for your innocent mistake. Even with my experience, I have caught more than one virus that way. If professionals can fall for a trick, most people make for an easy mark for criminals. But crime in the church is worse. Believing, then following someone who speaks "some" truth can result in eternal punishment and not just a loss of money.

Pray it.

Thank You, Holy Spirit, for showing Yourself in other people.
