Truth Wednesday - The Cosmic Battle Reality vs. Illustion submitted by Anne Morgan from "The Truth Project"


TRUTH Wednesday
The Cosmic Battle: Reality vs. Illusion

From the very beginning, the battle has raged - truth vs. falsehood, reality vs. illusion.
It started in the garden when Satan asked Eve, “Did God really say...” (Gen. 3:1)
But wait, not only did Satan question if God really said it, he twisted what God had said.
Sound familiar? Everyday, Satan does the same thing to us.

Have you ever questioned whether or not to claim that extra cash you made on your income taxes?

Have you ever turned away from a homosexual, or unwed mother, or a beggar because - if you’re honest with yourself - you felt they were somehow lower than you?

If you did, it’s because you’ve bought into the distortion of God’s Word that Satan has beguiled us into believing. Sadly, on some level, we all have.

The worst of Satan’s lies, however, attacks our souls, our being. It tears at the foundation of our belief system. And it’s at the very core of why we are willing to believe any of Satan’s distortions and lies. The big lie is:

“Are you really created in the image of God?”

This is the crux of the evolution theory. And it is Satan’s most cherished lie. If he can get us to doubt where we came from, who created us, he can shake every aspect of our faith. And most importantly, the message of salvation.

If we believe we are created in the image of God - Imago Dei - (Gen. 1:26) then we will also believe that we are born with a sin nature (Rom. 5:12) and that sin requires a Savior, and that Savior is Jesus Christ. (Rev. 1:5)
But...if Satan can get us to question, even on the most basal level, whether God is THE Creator, then he can whittle at every belief we have. If He is not the Creator, as He said, can we trust anything He says?
Satan’s goal is to keep us bound to him. His lies, and our belief of those lies, are the bonds he uses to achieve that. Make no mistake, there is NO truth in Satan, ever. (John 8:44) All Satan does is an illusion.
But praise God, the Reality, The Truth is that His Truth sets us free. (John 8:32)
Next week we’ll be looking at “What is Truth?”

Challenge for this week: listen for Satan’s lies, in your life, and in others. Let us know what you discover.

Last weeks challenge answer: 83 is the correct number of actual times Jesus is recorded as saying “I tell you the truth.” However, (Shirley pointed out) throughout Scripture God makes it clear that He is a God of truth.

Next Week: We will be looking at "What is Truth?"

There have been many times when I have believed Satan's lies. Satan is tricky, remember he is an "angel of light" meant to deceive. I am definitely going to be MORE aware this week of his "slithering" around me, my family , and my friends

I'd have to say that I have struggled with the "created in the image of God" statement, more than once! I have trouble comparing the image of God to a fat chick with bad teeth...but I'm working on it, and He's still working on me!

So Far This Week:

I have run across many people who are having a hard time commenting or finding where they are to comment on the posts. They want to share their prayer requests or music videos and can't.

Just click on the word "HERE" and it will take you to the post with the comment box already up and you will be able to see comments other people have shared.
