The Power of A Lie

December 1, 2013


joy to the world

SCRIPTURE

“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

~Genesis 3:4-5, NLT

QUOTE

A lie consists in speaking a falsehood with the intention of deceiving.

~Augustine

COMMENTARY

There is a destructive power in a lie which is why Satan uses them: he is a liar and the father of all lies. Think of all the damage done by the one lie he told Eve in the Garden. One lie, cleverly told, can destroy a man’s reputation. A lie can destroy a marriage, a relationship or even the fellowship of a church. Sarah Weddington build her case Roe V. Wade on a lie. She claimed that Norma McCorvey [Jane Roe] was raped. Norma confessed the truth long before they got to the no so supreme court but Weddington told her to keep her mouth shut, it was not important. Sarah lied and 50 million have died. The devil is not going to stop using the lie, it is too effective.
