When deception made its first appearance on this earth, it was recorded in Genesis 3. “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” (Gen 3:1) The tricky wording of this question was not a direct attack, but one from the side. By getting Eve to have to question what God had really said, this opened the door to Satan’s arguments, getting her and Adam to partake in the fruit.
This happens daily in our culture today. Nobody would agree with the statement that you should have the right to choose if your baby lives or not. Yet the pro-abortion movement has succeeded in changing the language to “pro-choice”. The said they are for freedom of choice. Except if that means freedom to choose your schooling through a voucher system, freedom to choose your healthcare instead of being forced into Obama care. Freedom to choose to join or abstain from a union in many states. This idea that the liberals are “pro choice” is nothing but a lie. Don’t fall for it.
This deception also exists when the left attempts to ‘piggy back’ their agenda onto a concept that many already agree upon. We should love one another. “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35) Yes, we are to love one another, regardless of race, background, etc. There should be no rules about who we love. Yes, this is true. But there are CLEAR rules about who we should make love to. This is clearly between one man and one woman, only in the bonds of marriage. Yet, a video is circulating on FB right now showing skeletons kissing, then revealing who they are. And 25% of the people groups shown where homosexual. This was clearly an attempt to take something that should be widely accepted by all, (we are to love everyone) and turn it into an intimate meaning. There were sisters and friends showing a kind of love that could be represented by hugs, but both homosexual couples had to be kissing, validating their sexual kind of love. Sexual immorality is simply wrong and we should not fall for it as acceptable because our media thrusts it on us.
ALL sexuality immorality is wrong, not just homosexuality. This would include premarital sex, multiple partners, or even in the case of Biblical characters, multiple wives. It is all wrong. Now plenty of people in the Bible got this wrong. But this does not mean that God condoned their action. “The Lord has sought out a man after his own heart” (1 Sam 13:14) and anointed David as king. Clearly God loved David but he never condoned his actions of having over 700 wives.
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” (1 Cor 6:18)
Satan is gaining victory in this argument in our culture not by saying that God wants us to be sexually immoral, because clearly he does not. There are many references to this. However, Satan wins through deception. He seeks to redefine what sexual immorality means.
Don’t fall for his deception. Don’t listen to the false teachers who distort the scriptures to fit their agenda. Wake up.
