“..the devil…abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)
Often, the reason we fall is because we have bought into a lie from Satan. He will not tell us the truth. He lies to us so that he can discourage us and tempt us to sin. Here are 6 lies Satan wants you to believe.
LIE #1: THERE IS NO GOD
Psalm 14:1 says, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” God calls the atheist a “fool” because all the evidence points toward there being a God. Romans 1:20 says that the evidence that there is a God “from the creation of the world” is “clearly seen…” In other words, all you have to do is simply look at the creation around you.
In fact, there is so much evidence that the Bible says those who reject it are “without excuse” when they stand before Him at the Judgment.
LIE #2: THE BIBLE US OUTDATED
Since the Bible is God’s Word and since God, Himself, is eternal, that means God’s Word is eternal, too! Psalm 119:89 says, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” The Bible is more up-to-date than tomorrow’s newspaper! Not only that, it is more accurate and descriptive of the human condition than any psychology textbook.
LIE #3: BECAUSE GOD LOVES YOU, YOUR BEHAVIOR DOESN’T MATTER THAT MUCH
Yes, it’s true that God loves you, but that doesn’t mean your behavior doesn’t matter. Just like a parent who truly loves their child will discipline them when they disobey, God will do the same thing. Proverbs 3:12 says, “For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.”
I will give you the last three lies Satan wants you to believe, tomorrow.
