2Th 2:1 And, brothers, we entreat you, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together to Him,
2Th 2:2 [b]for you not to be quickly shaken in the mind, nor to be disturbed, neither through a spirit, nor through speech, nor through letter,[/b] as through us, as if the Day of Christ has come.
2Th 2:3 [b]Do not let anyone deceive you in any way, because that Day will not come unless first comes the falling away[/b], and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
2Th 2:9 His coming is according to the working of Satan in all power and miraculous signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 and in all deceit of unrighteousness in those being lost, because they did not receive the [love of the truth in order for them to be saved.
2Th 2:11 And because of this, [b][u]God[/u] will send to them a working of error, for them to believe the lie,[/b]
2Th 2:12 that all may be judged, those not believing the truth, but who have delighted in unrighteousness.
Based on this scripture, the underlying issue is whether a person loves the truth or not. If a person doesn't love the truth, they will block off all voices contrary to what they want to believe.
