Believing a Lie

Doesn’t it seem like some people are more willing to believe a lie than they are to believe the truth? Whether it’s stories about Big Foot, alien abductions, Hollywood gossip, or the latest urban legend going around the Internet, the more bizarre the story the more ready some folks are to believe it.

Often those same people view the Bible with the eye of a skeptic. The mere mention of Noah’s flood or the miracles of Jesus will move them to be sarcastic and suspicious, and they’ll scornfully dismiss anything the Bible has to say.

The Bible does contain some hard to believe stories, and makes amazing claims about creation and the future of our existence. However, careful, honest investigation proves the Bible to be true in every case. The Bible even encourages us to examine its claims. 1 Timothy 4:7 says, “Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness.” That training involves studying and examining God’s Word.

God has granted you the right to believe a lie or the truth. The choice is yours, but you know, believing a lie never saved anyone.
