|There is no strength in unbelief. Even the unbelief of what is false is no source of might. It is the truth shining from behind that gives the strength to disbelieve. GEORGE MCDONALD
It is very popular today to dismiss truth as unimportant. The Bible, the whole Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament were given to us by God. He has said that it is His word and true. Revelation 22:19 gives solemn warning about God’s Word. “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Now take a look at the book of Genesis and tell me if some one messed with the Word of God. Eve said, we can’t even touch it (added to the word). The serpent said, “ye shall not surely die:” A play on words that is misleading and therefore a lie. When we stretch the truth, diminish the truth, twist the truth, say part of the truth and leave out some things to deceive, that is a lie the same as a flat out lie is a lie. Doing any of this makes one a liar. There are a lot of religious liars today. Some stand in pulpits and others sit in pews. Iregardless of their station in life, position in business, or religious zeal, if it is a lie it is a lie.
What was God’s reaction to the lies of the serpent and the woman. He cursed them! He cursed man, He cursed woman, He cursed the serpent, and He cursed the earth. Do you get the picture, that God hates liars and loves truth. Proverbs 6:16 gives us some insight. “The six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” Take a look a the list that a liar is added to. Hands that commit murder. Maybe we need to take a serious look at what we believe the Bible to say. Let us get ourselves on solid ground when it comes to the truth of God’s Word.
