How to tell the truth from a lie

Every day, voices tell us who we are and who we should be. Some of these voices are audible — like those belonging to friends, family members, advertisers, and colleagues. Others are internal, subtly shaping how we see ourselves and the world around us. 

Of the millions of messages our brains receive each day, some are true but many are not. 

You’d think it would be easy to tell the difference, but a good lie is never obvious. And our enemy is a good liar. 

A good lie is never obvious, and our enemy is a good liar. 

In God, we have a Father who loves us and wants us to know the truth. And in Satan, we have an enemy who lies to us and seeks to destroy us. 

Use the infographic below to learn how Satan crafts believable lies, spreads them to us, and what do to when you hear one. And be sure to check out “Hear No Evil,” a four-week series on identifying and defeating the lies Satan sends our way.
