THE BRAIN LIZARD’S BIG LIES

(January 29, 2021) Robert McQuillan shares on Satan’s reptilian lies…

Don’t you feel very disturbed within when you discover someone, especially someone you’ve always trusted, someone you’ve believed in, has lied to you?

Whether it’s a work colleague, business associate, salesperson or worst a best friend or child, our ‘little boat’ gets rocked as if in a storm!

Lying indicates trickery and deception – no one likes lies and being lied to. Hence, we teach children to value truth (and set personal examples by never lying!) and that one’s word is to be regarded as a person’s bond.

Unfortunately, because of sin, lying and lies are part of the human nature resulting in broken or unfulfilled promises (Something else we must warn their kids about).

Lying is not of God!
Lying is not in God’s character. The Bible is the word of the God who never lies (Psalm 33:4; John 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 John 2:27; Hebrews 6:18) and has several warnings and important things to say about lies and lying. For example, the Bible speaks against lying –

  • Vanities (Jonah 2:8)
  • Lips (Psalm31:18)
  • Ways (Psalm 119:29)
  • Words (Jeremiah 7:4)
  • Divination (words, witchcraft – Ezekiel 13:6)
  • Hearts (Acts 5:3,9)
  • Wonders (2 Thessalonians 2:9). Note this one well, gullible Pentecostal/charismatic-oriented Christians. Test everything!

God detests lies!
‘Lying’ – that’s shehkar in the OT Hebrew – indicating falseness, sham, untruth, wrong, deceit, feigning. The NT Greek pseudos says it all in one word – falsehood! (more…)

‘HAPPY HALLOWEEN’? – IT’S NO LAUGHING MATTER!

(October 26, 2017) Stuart Reynolds challenges so-called October 31 ‘fun’ …

Unfortunately me and mine have had the horrendous experience of having our home burgled … and more than once!

The most frightening occurrence was the time I was actually in the house. In anticipation of my wife Helen returning home from a night out, I had left the front door closed but unlocked.

Assuming it was Helen returning I didn’t react and check when I heard the door opening – it was a shock to discover later that some intruders had quickly stolen a mobile phone and snatched some car and house keys with the intention of returning later for more plunder!

Just five minutes prior to the break in, I had taken my two young children to bed – right past that closed but unlocked door! No danger at that moment – but what might have happened had we been there in that spot when the thieves came? Even now I shudder to think.

That incident of leaving the door open – unbolted – was definitely no laughing matter!

Neither are unbolted doors to the occult
Have I got your attention about the danger of ‘closed but unlocked doors’? Good – because I  want you to think about certain other unlocked door dangers… such as occult goings-on, the subtlety of October 31’s Halloween with its apparently harmless ‘Happy Halloween’/’Trick or Treat’/’Dress-up Fun.’ And, for that matter, other happenings that most people including ‘blindsided’ Christians regard as merely laughing matters!
