Deception and Original Sin

Among the most quoted verses in the bible is the introduction to the Sermon on the Mount of Olives regarding end times prophecy (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21).

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3)

The Lord replied by giving his disciples a stark warning which has echoed throughout the generations. “Take heed that no man deceive you” (Matthew 24:4).

In every way imaginable, Satan has sought to deceive mankind into believing that which is not true. With fake science (1 Timothy 6:20), he introduced a creation where the God of creation is not relevant – the big bang and evolution. With many religions, he has introduced the concept that there are multiple ways to “heaven”. And by using the name of Christ and Christianity, he has deceived a great multitude into seeking a false Christ. Hence, there exists a multitude of “Christian” doctrines deceiving the masses.

Every measure of sin dating from creation to this very day is the product of Satan who is intent on perverting the word of God (2 Corinthians 11:13- 15; Galatians 1:8-9), the Lord’s creation (2 Peter 3:1-7; John 1), and turning the heart of man and angel away from their creator (Genesis 3; Job 1:11-13; Revelation 12).

The original rebel, Satan, is able to accomplish this task by employing his dark art of deception.

“Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:7-8; emphasis miine)

This sin which is “from the beginning” (Genesis 3:4-5) is first, rebellion (denying the will of the Father), and then deception (causing others to deny the will of the Father and believe a lie).
