Since the beginning of the species called man, humans have accepted the lie before truth. The deceiver knew that Eve desired the forbidden fruit. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.” (Genesis 3:6 NIV) The deceiver merely added one word to what God spoke, and that was “not” to the statement “for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:17 ESV) The deceiver added the word “not,” but to close on the sale of destroying Eve and her husband, he added another lie, and that was “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:5 ESV) The deceiver’s suggestion of becoming like God. To be a god is what sold Eve to eat from the fruit.

Now Adam stood by and did nothing. He simply takes the fruit and eats, perhaps assuming she did not die and not knowing what death was, took and ate. It would suggest he did not witness something happening to Eve and that he also wanted to be a god. With each choice comes a consequence, for Adam and Eve are being cast out of Eden and finally dying. Accepting the lie for the truth, however, is greater today than ever. I recently read a statement that someone posted on YouTube that he read the Bible from cover to cover, and it does not mention gender; this is a lie because in Genesis 5:2 NIV we read, “He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.” Also, in Mark 10:6 NIV, we read, “But at the beginning of creation God’ made them male and female.'” It is obvious God created males and females, not anything else. But it is true of other species as well. “The clean and unclean animals, the birds, and everything that crawls along the ground came to Noah to enter the ark, two by two, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.” (Genesis 7:8-9 NIV) The individual either lied about reading the Bible from cover to cover or not knowing how to read. I point this out because today, some people seem to think there are more than two genders. 

A woman I know professes to be a Christian, but her verbal statements lend me to think differently about her. She claims that it is a person’s perspective is the source of truth. Well, it was Eve’s perceptive that she would be a god that caused the fall. Also, there cannot be two perspectives your’s and God’s. Many individuals claim to have some answer different from the one God presences. When a person does, they take on the role of the deceiver and present the lie. For example, there is no actual scientific evidence of where life comes from and where it goes. The reality is to remove God from the picture. Recently in San Francisco, CA, and a city named after a saint, closed a church because what they teach is not scientific. Regardless of the fact, it is unconstitutional to do so. Again we see the lie to take the position of truth. Again the lie is taking center stage to reject the truth.

Some claim the Bible is not accurate, or it is simply a myth rejecting the fact that the Bible is also the history of the Hebrew race, the 12 Tribes of Israel. If this is not so, then why did Islam built on the foundation of Solomon’s Temple. Today, we hear more and more distortions of the truth or outright rejection of the truth as if it is the lie, as the serpent did in the Garden of Eden. The truth is becoming more and more rejected with the use of covert hypnosis by the media to convince the masses of their lie is true. The continued use of repetition convinces the masses of the falsehood. It prepares the way for accepting the False Messiah by continuing to use the term of Ant-Christ, having people believe the Beast of the Sea will be a Christian to be Christ. He will be the long-awaited Messiah for Jesus Christ, said, “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.” (Matthew 24:23 NIV) We need to pray to God for the gift of discernment in the name of Jesus Christ to know the difference between the lie and God’s Truth.
