Lies vs the Truth

Have you noticed how many places on the web, spew out lies about the Bible and Jesus

All to ready to totally dismiss the Bible as fairy stories, but when this fails other lies are used, to say the main characters Moses and Jesus didn’t exists

So how can we know which a lie is and which is the truth?

The simplest way to tell is, wait and see how long these rumours (lies) last, they all seem to be fairly short lived, whereas the true remains for years

Plus there will be newer lies pass around, to replace the older ones that failed to convince

 

Allow me to remind you of some of those lies, in order you can see them as a hollow shames

“God was an alien” as in a creature from another planet, but since God is eternal and created all the planets, the alien is just another lie to belittle God

“God is dead” & “there is no God” these two contradict each other, as if god couldn’t be dead if there was no god in the first place

 The Bible is just fairy stories made up by ignorant nomadic tribes 

But this could only be partly true, as the Old Testament or Torah was written by those tribes, but not the New Testament

Moses & Jesus were not real people, they are borrowed stories from other cultures

“The great flood and the ark of Noah, could never have happened, or the would be evidence”

However why is Venice still a city of water?

 

There are other such lies, but this will do for now, as I wanted to move onto those concerning Jesus, many of these lies may been forgotten but where eagerly passed around as true

No 1: In the not so distant past, there was a rumour, Jesus was homosexual, only because he associated with only men, but this was a lie and short lived

Mary Magdalene became a faithful follower and Jesus also forgave another women her sins of adultery

It also seems that there were a group of female followers headed by Mary Magdalene

No 2: Jesus did not died, he was replaced by someone else who looked like him

But Jesus must have died, because he rose again and appeared too many crowds, and also to his disciples

If Jesus was not crucified and therefore did not die then there could be no resurrection and as Paul said “We are to be pitied more than any other people”

Even in these modern days Jesus appears and they are converted and their lives are transformed

No 3: Jesus was just an ordinary man and not a god or son of god

This is untrue as Jesus would not have been able to forgive sins, which he did on more than one occasion, if he did not have that authority and therefore declare himself God in doing so

As you will see there has be a variety of lies that conflict with each, all claiming to be reasoned truths 

Believers know him  as the father of all lies, a deceiver a twister of the truth

To such an extent Satan allowed himself to be ridiculed and even encouraged people to mock and portray him in many ways ranging from powerful and frightening to little more than an impish and playful figure while devising new ways to dishonour the name of his creator

Whispering lies that would take root which would grow into doubts, which later on would grow into disbelief of a loving god, in the minds of believers

Satan – Beelzebub – Devil – Father of lies – Lucifer are just a few of the names Satan is known by, the titles of the Father of lies describes his personality the best

For he will use anything as a weapon even using the word of god, when tempting Jesus, failing miserably he must have decided if he could discredit the Bible as fairy  stories he would stand a better chance of defeating God

In this process Satan hide himself away by cloaking his appearance in human’s minds frequently altering their perception of himself

As his image has changed over time, from the fallen angel,

Also by providing humans with anything to distract them long enough to implant doubts and strange ideas they would later claim to be the result of their intelligence and ability to reason

Providing false evidence of the alternative to creation, which would strengthen his lies and make them appear to be the truth

While appealing to the base nature of man, with ideas of temporary enjoyment in the guise of freedom, suggesting that humans should please themselves and there was nothing wrong with doing so frequently

Even to the extent feeding them false information that this life is our only onee, which should be lived to the fullest, ignoring any restricting instructions (10 commandments

Hence the eat drink and be merry attitude of self-indulgence

While gathering followers for himself, by appearing to be an easy going undemanding deity of creation and encouraging them to worship him, which was what Satan had secretly wanted

  1. Thank you Graham for a very good understanding of Satan’s deception, with my having been an Atheist for almost 30 years after being deceived as a young Teenager at School and by my Mother that I evolved from an Ape and Jesus and the Bible were just made up, I recognize a lot of these lies.

    There is also a lie that Christians sometimes believe and that is that God deliberately hurts us or willingly allows us to be hurt , some say to Teach us but this is not in His plans for those who Love Him. Can we really Trust someone whom we believe will plan to hurt us no matter how much we sugar coat it. God Loves us passionately, He is with us through every affliction giving us His Strength to endure and comforting us and His Plans for us are good not evil but until we have heart repentance we reap the evil we sow or others hurt us but Satan also puts us to the test as He did Jesus etc. God’s Discipline and Chastisement is not by Him afflicting us and His Testing is all about Love through The Fruit of The Spirit.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you I have called you by name, you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

    All Scripture is inspired by God as we see confirmed below, The Old Testament confirms the New and the New the Old but to understand God’s Truth we need His wisdom and empowering by The Holy Spirit, we were not Born with them and when we have them we can recognize God’s Truth from Man’s error and Satan’s Lies.

    2 Timothy 3: 17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction,for instruction in righteousness.That the Man and Woman of God may be Perfect and thoroughly equipped to do all His good works.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get understanding

    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom let that giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given them. But let them ask in faith nothing wavering. For them that wavereth are like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written Eye hath not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the Natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

      • Thank you Graham, but to be honest although I like to encourage and yes correct error if needed, I have never seen myself as a Teacher, I believe as Jesus tells us He is our only Teacher but I do ventilate or share God’s Truth with the confirmation of Scripture, yes sometimes it’s rejected and me too but only by those who lack God’s wisdom and Trust in their own or others understanding and yes I use to do this too.

        I was excited to see you had posted again Graham, I very much enjoy your messages but more so your humble, Loving spirit, Thank you for joining up with Freedomborn, let’s travel together along God’s Highway of Truth, it’s narrow but it’s the only way that bring fulfillment, Hope, Peace and Joy..

        Blessings – Anne.
