When the lie is of sufficient magnitude it may succeed, due to the victim's reluctance to believe that an untruth on such a grand scale would indeed be concocted.
The book by C. Lewis called "Screwtape Letters" was a clever idea in exposing a number of tactics of the enemy. Those principles are still at work today in many churches.
Following is a list of some of the things the enemy wants to see in churches and Christians in order to bring them down. Go here for further information.
I was driving along and noticing that spring has sprung here in North Carolina.
One of the first trees to bloom is the Bradford Pear. I began to notice how that tree has proliferated almost everywhere and then my wife looked up the information on this tree on the web. As she began to read the facts about this tree and its proliferation I began to see an allegorical parallel to what is going on in much of Christendom.
But before I get into what the Bradford Pear can show us about the churches, I need to present the facts about the tree. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. It should probably be called "The Disciple's Prayer".
It starts with a Truth and deception in advertising important concept in the first verse. The new Universalists are not as vocal about their Universalism ideas but are far more deadly to the Church as they are not rejected like classic Universalists were decades ago. Go here for more information.
I admit that I am very skeptical about the future of discernment and apologetics ministries. I don't see the next generation coming up to replace those who have stood for the truth for so long.
Fortunately many apologists have gone to be with the Lord but who will replace them? I don't see replacements coming up who will take the place of those who have been fighting the fight the years. I run a web site where I collect articles and materials from all over the world and present them in a sort of Reader's Digest format so that people can come to one place to get the latest information on heresies in the churches as well as research past ones.
What I've seen in the last couple of years is that the production of regular materials is declining to the point where it's becoming difficult to find one article for my site to post every day. Of course I write my own articles but don't have enough time to write an article on a daily basis.
I am very concerned because of the tsunami of false ideas from the enemy in the churches. At the same time, unfortunately, I see a lot of younger people who don't even recognize anymore that something is wrong.

It covers World religions, false Christianity and finally a study of the true remnant Church through history following the story of the many martyrs who stood up for true Biblical faith.
This is called eisegesis or plugging your own ideas into the Scriptures instead of exegesis, gaining understanding and interpretation of the Bible by studying it in context and in the scope of the whole written Word. He did this to support his thesis, which actually contradicts the second part of that verse, where it states that man cannot fathom what God has done.
But as I further investigated this verse I found that Richardson even ignored the true meaning of the FIRST half of the verse in favor of a few translations that use the phrase "eternity in their hearts".
Because Israel had prostituted herself with false gods in worshipping the polytheistic gods that started at Babel, God had declared He was divorcing Israel and would send them into exile until they again returned to the true God.
But Judah prided itself in doing what God had commended as they had Jerusalem and the Temple. They disdained Israel for setting up altars to Baal and Asherah poles on high hills. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God. There are many false teachers on TV these days who peddle the word of God for profit.Who I am.

Feel free to post general questions about lying, deception, love and romance.
When deception is uncovered, even finding out the truth about a small, white lie can lead to new problems, such as increased suspicion and doubt. If your spouse is willing to bend the truth about something trivial, what about something that really matters?

How the FTC Defines Deception. The FTC takes the following steps when looking at deception: Evaluating the ad from the point of view of the “reasonable consumer” – the typical person looking at the ad. Have you ever been the victim of a false ad or a deceptive marketing scheme?
Perhaps there was a time when a very compelling ad convinced you to buy a product or service, only to find out later that you had been misled by the marketing?
