The Truth And The Lie

“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen” (Romans 1:25).

The truth above all other truths is that God is Creator, and thus deserves eternal worship and blessing by His creatures. The lie that is greater than all other lies is that some creature—some created being or entity—is greater than its Creator, and as such is to be worshipped more than God.

The Lord Jesus Christ has made it plain that Satan, the Devil, was the father of lies. “When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44). He is the one who seeks to turn men away from the Creator, because he, himself, wants to be worshipped as God.

This has been his basic lie all through the ages. “Ye shall be as gods,” he told Eve (Genesis 3:5), and the deception of humanism has persisted in many guises and in every nation from that time to this. All of ancient paganism, as well as its modern varieties, perpetuates this lie in its denial of a personal, omnipotent Creator. But modern “scientific” evolutionism, with its absolute denial of supernatural creation and its veneration of man as the pinnacle of the cosmic process of evolution, has been by far his most successful variation of this ancient lie.

This modern form of the ancient apostasy, which has already generated such would-be man/gods as Hitler, Lenin, and Mao, will eventually culminate in the man of sin, who, “as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (II Thessalonians 2:3,4), and who will be worshipped by the whole world (Revelation 13:8). Let any who are now swayed by this ancient/modern lie of evolutionism heed God’s warning: “Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a [actually ‘the’] lie: That they all might be damned” (II Thessalonians 2:10–12). HMM
