The truths are simple, the lies complex. For the latter, all we have to do is fill in the blank. For the past six thousand years, people have been pretty creative liars.

Only the truth matters. But according to our corrupt nature, we don’t want to accept and obey it. We would rather believe lies and be damned (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12). This is what Satan wants.

adam eve edenSatan deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden, in the form of a serpent (Genesis 3:1-5). That lying snake now tries to deceive us. “Has God indeed said” that he created the world, that the Bible is divinely inspired, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he is the only way to the Father (3:1)? “Has God indeed said” that we will die in our sins if we don’t repent, that heaven and hell are real, that we cannot rule ourselves, and that we are not God (3:1)?

I refuse to believe Satan’s lies. What about you?

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” – Adolf Hitler
