"He [the Devil] was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies." -John 8:44
An important aspect of warfare is studying your enemy's tactics so that you can create proper defenses and counter-attacks to defeat your enemy. The same is true in spiritual warfare. Our enemy, the Devil, has many tactics, but his most common tactics are his lies. Here are some of his common lies: Jesus doesn't want to love a person like you; You're too messed up for Jesus to love you; You've failed too many times to be saved; There's no hope in this world so just give up; The Bible is wrong because there are parts that the world disagrees with. THESE ARE ALL LIES! The Devil is a really good liar. There are so many lies out there that people believe. The only way to know the difference between God's Truth and the Devil's lies is to study the Bible. And as you grow in your relationship with God, so will your defenses against the Devil's lies and you will be able to counter-attack with the Word of God!
