Controversy seems more controversial today than ever before. That’s because few of us are students of history. It all began with the fall of Adam. And, the bottom line of the conflict has been the same since that day. God created Adam; God gave Adam choices with a warning, and Adam ignored the warning and made the wrong choice. Adam chose to trust himself and disobeyed Almighty God. He and Eve both listened to and believed Satan’s lie.
Little has changed today. Satan is and always has been the master of deception. According to John 8:44b “When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. This is the reason that TRUTH is so important.
Great masses of people follow Satan. Many of them don’t realize it but they walk in lock step with him and all the time claiming to be a righteous and religious people. There must be a million reasons that people don’t want truth in their lives. The Bible says that they love darkness rather than light. “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.” ~John 3:19 (ESV)
It’s the same now as it was for Adam. Truth is something that he and Eve were not interested in. Their attention was focused on themselves rather than the truth. Presently we are bombarded with all kinds of lies from our flat screen televisions to what we see on the Internet. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” ~Ephesians 6:12 ESV
We, like Adam, have been given choices with warnings. And, like Adam and Eve, many choose to trust themselves rather than the Almighty God that created them. God also gave us the Bible as a guide with many warnings and instructions. There is no amount of argument that can be made to change one’s mindset after he or she has sold their very souls to Satan.
All of life is not about the LEFT, or the RIGHT, Democrats or Republicans, Baptist or Muslims it is up to each of us to regard or disregard all the warnings and choose TRUTH over the lies of Satan.
Our nation (USA) was conceived and dedicated to the principals of truth. It’s very simple; we or either for ‘TRUTH’ or we are not. A person must first realize that they need TRUTH before there is any chance that they will ever find it.
