Not discerning the Lord’s body. (1Corinthians 11:29)
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. (Eph 5:11 NIV)
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord. We do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. (2Cor 4:5; 2Cor 4:2 NIV)
Though you commit adultery, O Israel, let not Judah become guilty. (Hosea 4:15)
Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you? Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? (Gal 3:1-2 AMP)
I urge you, brothers and sisters, to keep your eyes on those who cause dissensions and create obstacles or introduce temptations [for others] to commit sin, [acting in ways] contrary to the doctrine which you have learned. Turn away from them. For such people do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites and base desires. By smooth and flattering speechthey deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting [the innocent and the naive].
(Romans 16:17-18 AMP)
The woman named Folly is loud; she is naive and knows nothing. She sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the heights of the city, calling to those who pass by, who make their paths straight: “Whoever is simple (naive), let him turn in here!” To him who lacks judgment, she says, “Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is tasty!” But they do not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol. (Pr 9:13-18 BSB)
[His] deeds do not permit [him] to return… A spirit of prostitution is in [his] heart; [he] do[es] not acknowledge the LORD. [His] arrogance testifies against [him] (Hosea 5:4-5)
You might also like to know who we are not.
A people without understanding will come to ruin. (Hosea 4:14)

~Prov 24:25 [TLB]
and those who totter to the slaughter,
hold them back [from their doom].
If you [profess ignorance and] say,
Behold, we did not know this,
does not He Who weighs and ponders the heart perceive and consider it?
And He Who guards your life, does not He know it?
And shall not He render to [you and] every man according to his works?
~Pr 24:11-12 [AMP]
It isn’t our job to judge outsiders.
But it certainly is our job to judge and deal strongly
with those who are members of the church
and who are sinning in these ways
You yourselves must deal with this man and
put him out of your church.
~1Cor 5:12-13 [TLB]
4 Jesus answered, “Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. 5 For many will come in My name [misusing it, and appropriating the strength of the name which belongs to Me], saying, ‘I am the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed),’ and they will mislead many. 6 You will continually hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end [of the age]. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and they will provide great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect (God’s chosen ones). 25 Listen carefully, I have told you in advance. 26 So if they say to you, ‘Look! He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out there, or, ‘Look! He is in the inner rooms [of a house],’ do not believe it. 42 “So be alert [give strict attention, be cautious and active in faith], for you do not know which day [whether near or far] your Lord is coming.
~Mt 24:4-6, 24-26, 42 [AMP]
