You may have heard recently that some people are actually trying to persuade that the holocaust never happened. http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/worldwars/genocide/deniers_01.shtml
To me, this is absolute lunacy. I mean, there are literally truckloads of documents, records and pictures… not to mention piles of film reels showing the atrocities against Jews in Germany during WWII. Given this evidence, how can anyone seriously consider an argument that it never happened? In fact, some contend that Hitler was actually “the best friend the Jews had”. Sorry if I seem a little passionate and closed-minded about the subject, but come on… give me a break. I’ve read some of the letters from people who actually lived through it, and that’s all the proof I need.
Rather than spend any more time on it… let’s move on to topic that is far less polarizing. Did you know some people believe William Shakespeare didn’t write plays… and instead… he was nothing more than a drunken poacher! Say What? Can you imagine some guy staggering through the forest in Elizabethan era clothing yelling “here rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” or more like “rere, habit, habit, habit”. Actually, I suppose it would be a slaughtered version of “come hither thine rabbit so I might partake of thy fair bosom”. Whatever! I’ve read some of his literature, and that’s all the proof I need.
So as dubious, farfetched and utterly absurd these stories may be, it makes you wonder why someone would invent and/or perpetuate them? The reasons are many I’m sure, and I’m not about to venture a guess… but I will say that society as a whole is no stranger to ulterior motives. The fact is this kind of spin has been going on for thousands of years… and we all know who’s the King of Spin is (aka The Father of Lies).
So it should be of no surprise when we hear that many people reject the idea that Jesus is the Son of God. Some say he was nothing more than a teacher or a profit. While others tout he never actually existed at all. Instead, they might suggest he is/was no more “real” than the Tooth Fairy. Sorry if I seem a little passionate and closed-minded about the subject, but I’ve read his words and the words of those whom he inspired in the Bible, and that’s all the proof I need.
Satan is called “the devil” in (James 4:7), “the evil one” in (1 John 5:18-19), “the prince of this world” in (John 14:30) and “the god of this age” in (2 Corinthians 4:4). But more than anything else… he is described as a liar. And in John 8:44, Jesus says that when Satan lies, he speaks in his native language.
I’ll close with this final thought – The term Satan means “adversary”, and he’s clearly the enemy of God. The reason he lies is simple, he has no power to defeat God. All he has are intricate and convincing lies, which have no purpose but to draw people away from the truth of Jesus Christ.
