Ephesians 4:14

14 That we may be no longer 1alittle children tossed by 2waves and carried about by every 3wind of bteaching in the 4sleight of men, in ccraftiness with a view to a 5system of error,


144 The Greek word for sleight refers to the cheating of dice players. The word for craftiness denotes the trickery employed by gamblers. The teachings that become winds, carrying believers away from the central lane of Christ and the church, are deceptions instigated by Satan in his subtlety, with the sleight of men, in order to frustrate God's eternal purpose, which is to build up the Body of Christ.
