PISCES ???? THE DECEPTION BECOMES CLEAR ,LOVE????
Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest. Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions. To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception; it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity. Knowledge of God's Word is a bulwark against deception, temptation, accusation, even persecution. The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.

Benedick, Claudio, and Don Pedro all produce the kind of witty banter that courtiers used to attract attention and approval in noble households. Courtiers were expected to speak in highly contrived language but to make their clever performances seem effortless. According to this work, the ideal courtier masks his effort and appears to project elegance and natural grace by means of what Castiglione calls sprezzatura, the illusion of effortlessness.
This becomes evident in the first few lines. We first learn of the empty words of Goneril and Regan as well as their hatred for their father, King Lear. This becomes the center of the play and also leads to the madness that the king suffers from. The first words that Goneril speaks are totally empty and are the complete opposite of what she really feels. The same goes for her sister, Regan, who is plotting against her father as well.
What does the Bible say about? Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out. Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord , but those who act faithfully are his delight. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
