Genesis 3:1–The serpent was clever, more clever than any wild animal God had made. He spoke to the Woman. “Do I understand that God told you not to eat from any tree in the garden? (MSG)
Genesis 3:13b “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” (NASB)
In Al Gore’s disturbing documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” he quotes two leaked memos. One states “Reposition global warming as theory rather than fact.” The other says “Doubt is our product since it is the best means of creating controversy in the public’s mind!”
Same goals, different memos. Make people doubt the truth. Most scientists agree that global warming is a serious threat. We can doubt that it’s happening, but that won’t stop it from continuing.
Satan had the original blueprint for this type of plan. His leaked memo is in Genesis 3:1 and the result follows in 3:13b. Nothing has changed. His purpose was and still is to separate us from truth.
We can believe that cigarettes are good for us and that transfats are healthy. We might even believe that we can drive safely while impaired. We can tell ourselves there is no God. We can say that Hell is a figment of the imagination.
We can believe what we like, but this Joyce Meyer quote should make us reconsider all of the above. “Don’t believe in Hell? Well, how convenient. That won’t stop you from going there.”
Prayer: Lord, give us truth in every area of our life. Help us to believe it and act on it. In Jesus’ name. Amen
