John 8:44 – The Father of Lies

John 8:44
44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

-Let this be a reminder of why lies are so dangerous.  It would have been bad enough if the human race had created lies, but the true father of lies is no less than Satan himself.  Think about the verbiage that Jesus uses- Father.  Satan is more than just the creator or originator of lies, he is their father.  This is why there can be no such thing as “little white lies”.  Even if a lie started small, it is not Satan’s desire that it stay that way.  Just as parents nurture their children and desire to see them grow up big and strong, so too does Satan nurture lies and desire to see them grow to be big and strong.  Big enough and strong enough to wreck marriages, split homes and destroy lives.

  1. I totally agree! Even if something is 99.9% the truth and .1% a lie then it is a lie. That is part of what caused the problem for the entire human race in the Garden of Eden. Anything that is not 100% truth is a lie.
