"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

“Four Lies That Ruined the World” by Adrian Rogers

I just watched one of Adrian Rogers’s messages entitled “Four Lies That Ruined the World.” I want you to watch it too. I also made an outline as I always do when I listen to Adrian Rogers, and I will post that below.

Four Lies That Ruined the World
Dr. Adrian Rogers
Genesis 3:1-5
  •  Satan’s whole system is built on a lie. (John 8:44)   
  • “Satan’s goal is murder. His method is a lie.” A. Rogers 
  • "You have to look beyond the surface to see the lies of the devil.” A. Rogers 
  • “The best lies are the ones that sound the most like the truth.” A. Rogers 
  • The thought is the father of the deed. (Proverbs 23:7)
  • Satan’s Four Big Lies
    •  God is not good. (Genesis 3:1)
      • Satan tries to get us to believe that God is withholding good from us.
    • God is not truthful. (Genesis 3:4) 
      • The devil wants us to think skeptically about God. 
      • “Anyone who cases skepticism regarding the authority, accuracy, acceptability, impeccability, infallibility, and authenticity of the Word of God is doing the work of the devil.” A. Rogers
      • What we have substituted for the Word of God.
        • Relativism- no fixed truth.
        • Subjectivism- feelings and experiences.
        • Rationalism- logic.
        • Pragmatism- does it work?
        • Postmodernism- truth is subjective and individualistic.
      • The devil does not want us to have a fixed standard of truth.
    • God is not righteous. (Genesis 3:4)
      • The devil wants us to believe that there is no God of judgment.
      • The devil knows that people fear death. That is why so many people believe in reincarnation.
    • God is not gracious. (Genesis 3:4-5)
      • Satan tells us that we can be our own god and have our own way.
      • Revelation 22:4
      • 1 Corinthians 2:9
      • Satan tells us that we can never be fulfilled until we do our own thing.
      • “Those who know the least about sin are those who are deepest in it.” A. Rogers
    • How do we overcome the lies of the devil?
      • Revelation 12:9-11
      • By Calvary’s conquest.
      • By the word of our testimony—courageous confession.
      • Bring the Word of God against the lies of the devil.
      • By complete commitment. (Revelation 12:11)
