Then why do we fall for them?

“We embrace these words because they feed the secret desires and motivations of our hearts. They have fed the soulish desire for gain and promotion. Without realizing it we have adopted a desire for the Pharisee's reward—the praise and recognition of man and the riches and comforts of this life. We have lost sight of the eternal reward and accepted the temporal. This inhibits our ability to rightly divide truth from falsehood.”— Thus Saith the Lord?, page 67

Compromise, pure and simple. The stuff we can touch and feel wins out over the stuff that is just as real—and really matters.
