I get an e-mail once or twice a week very similar to this. I know that I am not alone; however, it makes me wonder. What counterfeit messages are we receiving every day from the Accuser?

These scams from greedy con artists remind me that Satan’s ploy is to deceive us with something that seems so real, yet is a blatant misrepresentation of the truth. Just like in the Garden, the wily master of misdirection convinces Eve that God is holding something back. That the tree of knowledge is more than a poison apple, it is the fruit of unlimited potential. She bites, Adam snacks, and then man’s relationship with God is torn asunder.

Over and over, throughout the stories of the men and women of the Bible, we see that Satan has set himself against any who would call on the Name of the Lord. In John we see Jesus describing the devil as a “murderer since the beginning, nit holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he speaks lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8: 44)

So, how do you respond when you receive an e-mail like the one above? Let us learn to respond in kind when we receive a message from the “father of lies.”

“Submit yourselves then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
