The Insidious Ways of the Enemy

Does satan uses "good personalities" of people, and lascivious carnal love some people seem to possess to try and influence children of God into straying from the truth? I can see that being with someone who is pleasant, positive, and uplifting could open a child of God up to the influence of that person, even if that person is not in God. They (the child of God) could reason within themselves (by the power of a seductive spirit from that person) that this person seems to be more at peace than me, and then begin to receive false truths from them, and it affect greatly their walk with the Lord. Satan would then use this relationship to imperceptibly take them down the slippery slope, all the while them thinking that they have discovered "new truths and revelations" in the Lord.

I believe one time I heard the Lord speak to my spirit and say that He wants us to have no other influence other than from Him alone. Any other influence must be checked by the Spirit with the discernment He gives us. If it is not, we may end up calling "light, darkness" and "darkness, light," and oh, how dark is that darkness.
