The Great Deception – Dr. Charles Stanley

- julio 26, 2017



Guidance From the Garden, Part 2
Satan’s words to Eve about eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil directly contradicted what God had told her. Yet he convinced her there would be no repercussions to her disobedience. Satan still uses the same lie to deceive us today—that God’s Word can’t be trusted and that sin has no consequences. Learn to resist his deception and obey God.

  • Unfortunately according to this doctrine every person on earth would have a life that is in shambles, including Charles. Does he not realize he sins against God all the day just like the rest of us? Don't turn the grace of God into an excuse to do evil, but don't dismiss the grace of God all together. Jesus paid the price for our sin. It is the devil who seeks to devour, not God. God judged sin in Jesus. Why else would the Apostles feel the need to admonish you not to use your freedom in Christ as a cloak for evil? They wouldn't say it if it weren't a possibility. Jesus said he who loves Him will keep His commandments, not he who is scared of judgment. God already judged sin in Jesus. The coming judgment is of those who have rejected the Savior and "trodden the Son of God underfoot..". I can bear witness the highest point materially speaking and lowest point spiritually is when I lived in absolute disregard for any commands. Satan is well pleased with God's children living contrary to their righteous nature. On the other hand, the lowest point of my life materially speaking and highest spiritually is when I began to obey God. The devil won't bother worldly Christians, they are no threat. However, he does attack those who attempt to obey Jesus and pursue His will. God allows the suffering for our own good to purify us and test our faith. The Father disciplines every single son He receives in the exact same way for our benefit. Who are the sons? Those who do the will of God. Suffering comes to those who would obey God and prosperity to those who would not. Christ has washed every single sin away from everyone who believes. It is the goodness of God that leads to obedience, not fear-mongering. The knowledge of the Gospel and Jesus Christ will lead to repentance from the foolish pride of thinking we can somehow deserve anything from Him at any time as well as the rebellion toward the man-made gospel of fear.

    "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"
    (Romans 2:4)

    "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his."
    (Romans 8:1,9)

    "For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins."
    (Hebrews 10:1-2)

    "By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified."
    (Hebrews 10:10,14)

    "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."
    (Hebrews 10:16-17)

    "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him."
    (Hebrews 10:38)

    "And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?"
    (Hebrews 12:5-7)

    "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
    (Romans 8:14)

    "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another."
    (Galatians 5:1,13)

    "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."
    (1 Peter 4:12-13)

    "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
    (1 Peter 5:8)

    "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked."
    (1 John 2:1-6)
