Witnessing this to Adrian Rogers that may surprise you to learn that Satan is what Satan wants is not casualties, he won't convert over to his own writing was this person rather than for spiritual laws. Therefore, spiritual fall time, they won't be any way welcome to featuring the dynamic teacher, pastor and author Adrian Rogers as we just heard Satan wants to bring death to her happiness, joy, impurity, and he accomplishes that through lives. Satan cleverly crafts subtle lies about the biggest troops and we see this exemplified in his confrontation with Eve in the Garden of Eden. If you have your Bible turn to Genesis chapter 3 will begin in verse one's in his Adrian Rogers shares for lives ruined the world by God's word. Genesis chapter 3 where there are series on challenges to the cross we made in today's world that we need to have Bible answers for the title of the message today for a lie is that role in the world. These are Satan's war biggest lies Satan's whole system is built on a lot. Jesus said in John chapter 8 and verse 44 to announce a Pharisees, you are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father you will do the was a liar from the beginning, and abode not in the truth and when you speak a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it.
That is, every live it's ever been told has been spawned by the daddy liar liar of all liars. The father of all lies is the devil himself. Satan is a liar.
Jesus said he is a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth. Melissa's motive is murder. His method is the lie. Never forget that his motive ends method there in John chapter 8 and verse 44 Satan wants to bring death to life, to enjoy the peace that happiness the fruitfulness he wants to bring physical death. He wants to bring spiritual death.
He wants to bring eternal death, and he does it through deception.
He is a dirty liar and I were going to find four of Satan's biggest lies. These are foundational lies and allies out of which all other lies come not remember that Satan is the master liar and because he is the master liar that his lies are very good.
Satan knows how to tell lies is lies a very clever West look here in Genesis chapter 3 verse one now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field just underscore that word subtle mouse Satan's lies about lies that are obvious lies on the surface beneath the surface to seize lies because it is very clever say something, the best lies sound the most light. The truth, and so there is some truth in most lies a clock that doesn't even run is right twice a day as I.
But no, wait a minute.
If a clock is only right twice a day you look at it music from that maybe right twice a day but is still wrong. What is more dangerous clock 12 hours wrong are clock five minutes from like five minutes long, is far more dangerous than a clock 12 hours wrong. We look at August 12 hours wrong, say that's wrong. Somebody tell me what time it is like five minutes wrong in the SharePoint now there's a different Satan's lies are very close to the truth and yet so very far from the truth I didn't. Satan had rather you think our own thing believe a lie than to do wrong thing. Why because the thought is the father living is more dangerous to believe our own thing than to do wrong thing you can do wrong thing by mistake and the next time do the right thing.
But if you believe a wrong thing.
You keep doing the wrong thing over and over again. The Bible says as a man think within his heart so is he. And so the devil is the original liar. The devil is the master liar, and the best lies sound the most likely truth and those that are nearest to the truth and still alive, are the most dangerous now Satan being a very clever liar. Satan being the master liar. Satan wanting to do his work for a lie which is murder will tell a lie about the biggest subject is not interested in telling lies about little things he wants you to believe lies about the biggest subject. What is the biggest subject. God is the biggest subject matter.
Satan can get your mind twisted about who God is and what God does what God is like many scratcher because the fall is the father of the Dean AW toes a great leader in the Christian missionary alliance church said and I want to is this quote no religion can rise higher than his concept of God that is so true.
No religion can rise higher than his concept of God. Now Satan in the very first book in the Bible the very first pages of history is going to tell for big lies and all of them are going to deal with the character of God.
Satan does not want you to understand who God is, that may surprise you to learn that Satan is an evangelist what Satan wants is not casualties, he wants converts over to his own idea and so Satan comes as an evangelist to E to evangelize her for the devils religion Eve was his first convert, and rather than for spiritual laws. Therefore, spiritual flaws for lives. They want me to lean any takes to make enemies lies not just what Satan has done in the ghetto.
These are the four lies that you meet today and tomorrow.
They're very fresh and very up-to-date. Now Satan really he may be double-faced but is not double minded. He wants to do the same thing today that he has always so you ready for these four big lies.
I live on the one God is not loving.
That's the first line. Notice again in chapter 3, verse one now the serpent that's the devil was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God made any set of the woman, yet hath God said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden. I want to try to describe beginning to think negatively about God. Get the idea that God is withholding goodness from her. Therefore, God himself is not good that God is severe. God is cruel. Here's a beautiful garden of Eden, and God made it and then God said, you can't touch it.
You can eat of it, of course, God did not said they could not eat of the fruit of every tree of the garden that was alive. What had God said looking Genesis 2 verse 16 you in the Bible just turn backward one chapter and the Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou meas freely eat of every tree that is freely wanted Satan to save now the serpent was more subtle and beast of the field and he said unto the woman that God said you shall not, of every tree of the garden God said help yourself Satan said God says again and now what what to say in front of his trying to get Eve to think negatively about God that God is cruel God is harsh God is loving. He wants to deny you being of any ultimate joy. Anything that brings pleasure is a no no time God sees anybody having a good time God moves in the breakup again. The truth of the matter is that God had said a resounding yes yes to the joy and to their pleasure. When God created Eden and all of his luxury all of his beauty all this bounty God said Adam may bear children. That is for you help your self rather a lot of people today have the idea that God is some sort of a cruel God, vengeful deity, sitting up there on his big throne curling down laws to make her squirm like a worm in hot ashes trying to keep them that God is a cosmic killjoy.
God is trying to keep things from us. That is not true. God loves us use versus I give you these before but jot them down some 37 and verse four delight myself in the Lord and he shall give the desires of thine heart, and that great what your heart yearns for you will find in him some 84 verse 11 the Lord thy God is a son and a shield. The Lord will give grace and glory, and I listen to this. No good thing will he withhold from them to walk upright. No it will make you healthy, happy hole. It also. God says, help yourself.
Every time he says now so not a safe, don't hurt yourself. Every time he says thou shalt they say, help yourself to happiness. God loves you. Listen to this one. First Timothy chapter 6 verse 17 charge them that are rich in this world that they be not high-minded trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us the listen. This phrase, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy is not great that if the devil can get you thinking negatively about God is already got. That's a very first thing he did when he sprawled his slimy corroding path in the history to give you to think negatively about God. Line number one God is not good God is good all the time. All right line of line number two verse lie.
God is not good. Line number two God is not truthful. God is not truthful about notice he said in verse one said now that's about the doubt leads to denial now notice in verses two through four and the woman said under the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. She knew better, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, you shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die, and the serpent said unto the woman, he shall not surely die.
Verse one doubt now in verse four. Denial, you will not die. You have to worry about God's basic Satan did first of all, was to get Eve to think negatively about God. Then the next step is easy to get Eve to think skeptically about God. Line number one God is not good. Line number two God is not truthful about what Satan had done. In verse one is to put a? At the word of God. I want to say clearly and plainly that anyone who causes skepticism concerning the authority, the accuracy and acceptability, likability, infallibility, the authenticity of the word of God is doing the work of the devil, as a work that I don't care what seminaries and I don't care what degrees he has if he puts they put send out a? Garden I left the word of God.
He is the devil is out to destroy the truthfulness of God in today's society we have substituted many things for God's word and all of them are based on the devil's laws.
Let me mention some of these, first of all, relativism what is relativism relativism is the idea that there is no fixed truth, a professor in the University stood up and said, students I would tell you there is nothing that you can say is absolutely true is nothing that you can be absolutely sure a student lift his hand and said Prof. you sure that the said absolutely relativism. Everything is relative. At respective philosophers name is Henkel a TGL he had some of dialectic what Hegel said was over. Here is a thesis believed in over here is an antithesis or an anti-thesis that says, I argue with that. And these two getting a big argument and then they come together to a synthesis thesis, antithesis, synthesis, and so maybe the thesis over his capitalism antithesis as communism and then the synthesis is socialism.
And then that synthesis and minds of many, becomes the new thesis. Now this is true, and then over here, you get another antithesis and then after lighting another synthesis essay what is happening.
Everything is relative. There is nothing fixed. There is no anchor.
There is no standard. Plato's Republic talked about some sailors who, having lost the chart and compass put a light on the bow of the ship and scared by that is what we're doing today society number one relativism number two subjectivism what is subjectivism well.
I feel this I feel that, let me tell you about my experience used to be a time when Pritchett was navigable up and say the Bible says when they sizing the church as analogous to what it seems to me or I feel that, scratch the head subjectivism are not a substitute for the word of God is rationalism. Rationalism that is we bring logic we bring our computers we worship at the shrine of our intellect and rather than saying the support of God was a Lisette the mind of man. We try to put God on our scales, put God in a test to put God in our cyclotron split God in our computers but God will not fit with a test. I think we automate reasonable show. Don't be my friend where reason cannot wait. Faith must win what we believe is not contrary to reason. Listen, it is not contrary to reason. It is beyond the reason beyond race. God is not an unreasonable God, but can a man by reason find out God absorbing and so we would try relativism and subjectivism in rationalism and that is work, what most Americans like us. Pragmatism what is pragmatism pragmatism. Nothing bothered to ask, is a true waitress asked does it work with very pragmatic about it, but the most dangerous of all, this is the thing is happening in the society we live in is something called post modernism and postmodernism. Now Modernism would argue with conservativism about what is right what is wrong. Postmodernist anybody argue the postmodernist is even believe there is anything called truth are hereby believe that truth is everywhere, but no one truth is over. Just another truth so somebody might say look you in the mood I am in Jesus. What is true for you is find that your true, what is true for me as fine as my free and this is called post modernism, and that's a big word for a lot of silliness and foolishness, but the devil doesn't want you to believe that God is a God of truth. If you have children and you're raising the children. Your children have been infected by these other forms substitutes for the truth of God and the big daddy liar is behind it all and you and I have difficulty raising your children unless you get them to believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired and infallible word of God.
And when you talk to them and say you should not commit fornication. You should not commit adultery. You will say because it's bad for you will because aside, you say, because God says so you don't tell a lie. Why, because God says so is wrong to steal because God says so. Worship only one God because the Bible teaches that the devil does not want a society to have a fixed standard of proof. God is good say man, God is truth saying man that I did only that the Devils got you going his way.
He wants you to think negatively about God that he wants you to think skeptically about God line number three line number three God is not righteous, God is not righteous look, if you will. Now in Genesis 3 verse four and the serpent said of the woman ye shall not surely die. That is, God is not really going to punish sin. There is no God of judgment. You have to worry about facing a judgment.
I want a friend.
God is good, but God is also righteous God is loving yes God is loving but God is righteous and have you preach the love of God, to the exclusion of the wholeness and the righteousness of God.
You only preach half of the crew and when you take The truth and try to make The truth.
All of the truth that having the truth becomes an untrue essay that is moving along. Now, since you don't believe that there is the God of the Bible is good and loving and since you don't believe that the God of the Bible is truthful are the Bible the word is true, then you will have to worry more about judgment now when God gave the 10 Commandments God was not giving advice he was giving law and law without penalties. Only advice.
Now that a lot of people today who take these things a pragmatism, rationalism, subjectivism, and they do away with the idea of eternal punishment. I would be unfair to you as a preacher of I did not tell you there is an eternal hell if you die without Jesus Christ you're going to die and go to hell. There is a fiery burning hail ATL L for those who reject Jesus Christ as their personal savior and will disable that's un-American and maybe I am an idea that is the Supreme Court of the United States of America could vote on it. They without law hell as cruel and unusual punishment has no right God has no authority to know that God is righteous God, and God will not let what happened once. Go punish new ageism comes out of the idea that you will not surely die on the new age is it's just a blend of Eastern religions is coming to America today. Satan knows that man fears death.
That's the reason we have some believe in reincarnation. You'd be surprised how many people in evangelical churches say they believe in reincarnation pages keep going around and around and get as many chances as you mean. They say these people believe that men and animals were all interrelated in and were all trans migrating and if your karma is good to keep moving up time to calm his magic move down so your next life.
You might be a warm my Friday are you might be a cow or spider as a reason many of the vegetarians.
They will go to McDonald's right in my beating the grandmother's up because finally one day if your karma is good enough you reach Nirvana, but they reject the idea of our righteous God, a God of judgment.
There little imaginary God says God is too good to punish sin bring God is too good not to punish sin.
God is righteous that you can send with impunity. Bring God's honest truth of God is righteous.
These true are being taken away from our societies is a big line with the other lies are built. We never forget that God is righteous, he is good and he is truthful. Rest in that today.
