THe whole point on deception is that you don't you are decieved that's why it is so dangerous as in the New testament we are warned about it many times

It is one of the things that we can be guilty of without even knowing it
As the whole nature of deception is that once we have done something we try and cover it up and then forget it

It is something that we don't want to face is the truth.
We can't handle the truth .

Jesus wouldn't have warned people about deception if people were being decieved and you can't point to another group

 Re: The greatest deception is self deception

When He the Holy Spirit comes He will guide you into all truth

It was only in really obeying the Lord in a sacrificial way that He began to protect me from the deception I had previously been held under by the Faith and Grace movements.
And their twist on Bible verses

There is a safe place from harm and it's in laying down our lives to obey the Lord above all other ideas of how the Christian life should be lived. As he wants us to be set apart for Himself. To be a vessel of honour fit for the masters use.

Even those Baptized in the spirit will face the torment of sinful thoughts. AS the Lord purposely withdraws himself so the tempter will come and allows us all to be tempted to expose our sinful hearts. But in dying to self by obeying in a storm of temptation, we can overcome various areas of our flesh.. Jesus said "The Devil has nothing in me". John 14 v 30. Meaning, I believe that there was nothing sinful that could be tempted within Him.
