Same Old Lies

Satan's lies, He lied to Eve and He lies to us, Genesis 3:1-5, 1 John 2:15-17
Satan told Eve God was lying. The forbidden fruit would make her wise, not make her die. (Genesis 3:1-5).

And Satan tells us the same lies. He tells us things God forbids are actually the good things in life. They won’t really harm us. 

And we believe him:
  • Professing Christian singles are just as likely to have sex as non-Christian singles. 
  • Professing Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-Christians.
  • Missionaries working in the worst conditions often have to beg for funds while many stateside pastors and church members buy bigger houses, nicer cars, and better vacations.
Yes, most of us have convinced ourselves that pleasure, comfort and material possessions are the good things of life. We've ignored God’s warning:

“Do not love the world or anything in the world…The world and it’s desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever” 1 John 2:15-17.

Help us, Lord, to quit listening to Satan’s lies.

  2. This is so true. I have the hardest time with my kids. They think that being believers means the can't have fun anymore. It keeps them from fully surrendering.
