We live in evil times as the Apostle Paul predicted in 2 Timothy 3. Men generally do not have a love for the truth or the God who gave it. In these first articles we are trying to establish the fact that we need the truth and how important the truth is to our souls. If we do not have a very strong love for the truth we will fall for the lies of the Devil.

 

Satan is the “father of lies” (John 8:44). He lied to Eve in the beginning and caused the downfall of mankind (Genesis 3). Satan changed ONE word of what God said and turned the truth of God into a lie. That is all it takes, my friends! Just one word added or taken away will change the truth into a lie. This is a very serious point. Please understand we are trying to show what is happening in our world today.

 

 

When it comes to salvation, men will add just ONE word to what God has said and deceive the masses. Men will teach we are saved by faith ONLY. Men add the word ONLY to what God said. The Bible does not teach this false doctrine of “FAITH ONLY.” It is a lie of Satan. “Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and NOT by faith only” (James 2:24). Please notice this is the only time the words “faith” and “only” appear together in the Bible! And it teaches just the opposite of what men teach!

 

Satan did not just make a mistake when he lied to Eve and said, “Ye shall not surely die:” (Genesis 3:4). He knew exactly what he was doing and false teachers today know exactly what they are doing when they add the word “only” to God’s word about faith. Please understand: we cannot be saved without faith. But faith ONLY will save no one. There is a big difference in these two statements. One is found in the Bible; the other is not!

 

Friends, if you have a strong love for the truth, you will daily “search the scriptures” (John 5:39) as Jesus urged the people to do in His day. If you do not have a love for the truth, sadly, you will be deceived into believing a lie and lose your soul. Think about it!
