How Are We Led Astray?

How are we led astray?
Beginning in Mark 13: 3, Peter, James, John, and Andrew are sitting with Jesus on the Mount of Olives.  Jesus warns them, his closest friends, not to be led astray.  Led astray?  Did Jesus really believe that his closest friends might believe someone else saying, "I am he"?  Did he really think that they could be deceived? What does Jesus know here that the disciples do not yet know?

In what ways are we led astray?  What calls to us and says, "Here, I am! I'm really important!"?  What calls our name and calls our attention?  What is loud and unyielding in its pursuit of our attention?  Where is the still, small voice of the Lord in the midst of this clamoring world?
