Seven Popular Lies Satan Tells

1. ?It doesn?t matter what you believe as long as you love Jesus.?
2. ?One church is as good as another.?
3. ?Telling people they are sinners hinders the preaching of the gospel.?
4. ?Sin is an outdated word.?
5. ?When Jesus lived on earth, he committed sins.?
6. ?Just believe and say the sinner?s prayer, and your sins will be forgiven.?
7. ?Don?t be baptized to be saved; be baptized because you are saved.?
Satan has always been a liar (John 8:44), and we must realize that he is out to get our souls by leading us away from the truth to a lie (1 Pet. 5:8; Eph. 4:14). We must measure everything we hear by the word of God. Satan wants to appear like an angel of light, but his message is really darkness (2 Cor. 11:3-5, 13-15).
The devil can quote Scripture (Matt. 4:6), but he is selective in what he quotes and ignores the rest of Scripture. Just because something is true does not mean it is the whole truth. So let me suggest:
1. Love Jesus and take care what you believe (1 Tim. 4:16).
2. The Lord?s church is the only church purchased by His blood (Acts 20:28).
3. Sinners must repent (Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30).
4. The wages of sin is still death (Rom. 6:23).
5. Though Jesus was tempted in all points as we are, He is without sin (Heb. 4:14-16).
6. Repent and be baptized so that your sins will be forgiven (Acts 2:38; 22:16).
7. Baptism also now saves us (1 Pet. 3:21; Tit. 3:5-7; Mk. 16:16).
