God is Truth
I am the way, the truth, and the life… (John 14:6)
Satan is a liar
He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.John 8:44
How do you suppose that Satan can convince so many that he is not as the Bible has described him?
How do you suppose that the lines dividing truth from a lie have faded to the point of being indistinguishable?
How do you suppose doubts about the existence of God has resulted in attempts to remove any reference of Him in our nation?
How do you suppose that we can believe that Jesus is not the Messiah, the Son of God?
How do you suppose that we can live our lives in direct opposition to God’s word and be cheered on by society for those choices?
This is how:
The answer to every question is the same. Remove the influence of God and the truth of His Word, and Satan can deceive and manipulate without restraint. He has the power of the world’s falsehood reinforcing the lies with which he has deceived us. Believing that Satan doesn’t exist or that God doesn’t either for that matter, can be easily concluded if you reject God’s word, the Bible.
Think about it. What are we embracing as truth that formerly was considered a lie? What are we identifying as a lie that formerly was considered truth?
Society changes, but not God. In the not so distant past, certain lifestyles or choices were considered immoral. But not today! Has society or an individual who has thrown off what they labeled as religious restrictions been the better for it? Without the unchangeable truths of God, we will think we are seeking freedom when we are actually seeking license. Doing what we want without anyone telling us we are wrong.
If we don’t know what the Bible says about the choices we make, how are we going to be able to make choices that will gift us with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, or self-control?
How will be able to recognize what is truth and what is a lie?
