Power of a Lie

 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
When Satan is at work in power among men, the human mind will religiously believe any lie. It will act so as even nature and natural conscience left to themselves would condemn. He that kills you will think that he does God service, was one instance of this; the strong delusion to believe a lie in the latter day is another. The human mind—nature—natural conscience left to itself—could hardly justify Saul's persecution of the Church; it could never justify man's treatment of the Lord's Christ, nor will it attempt to do so when man stands in the light. Passion, lust, prejudice, will go a long way; but Satan will lead, will push, a great deal further.
