The lie and the truth
"Lie, lie, as much as you can lie!". "The more confidently we will repeat the lie, the sooner it will be accepted as the truth". Such instruction was supposedly in force in the training of diplomats of Tsarist Russia. Nowadays, this instruction assumes that the lie repeated many times becomes true. Unfortunately, this is the most common instrument of power. Satan gained power over people by lying, and this method is still used to gain and maintain power in many countries.
According to the Bible, the lie first appeared in the Adam-Eve-Lucifer triangle. Then there was a situation contrary to God's laws, that is, a state of untruth, in contradiction to what was the truth of God. In the biblical text, the lie spoken by Lucifer built the basis for the consolidation of evil. It was like that. The truth from the Creator was that the consumption of "fruit" will cause death: "... from the tree of knowledge of good and evil you must not eat, because if you eat from it, you will inevitably die" (Gen 2: 16-17). And that's how it happened. As a result of the fall, Adam and Eve died, of course, only for God, but for Him it meant the complete death of man. Lucifer opposed the truth from God: "You certainly won't die! But God knows that when you eat the fruit of this tree, your eyes will open and, like God, you will know good and evil "(Gen 3: 5-6). There are actually two lies in this statement by Lucifer: the first that they will not die, and the second that God knows both good and evil. This second lie is so pronounced that few are aware of its enormity and consequences.
Almost all Christianity recognized that Lucifer was telling the truth, claiming that God knows evil. Meanwhile, the Jesus Christ had a clear view on Satan's statement: "From the beginning he was a killer and he did not persevere in truth because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from himself because he is a liar and the father of lies "(John 8:44). Therefore, on many pages of this study I show that God does not know evil, and even cannot know it. Of course, Satan would very much like people to say that God knows evil and that his lie would become commonplace truth. If this is not the case, trust Jesus' opinion instead of "accusing" God of knowing evil.
Christians explain that man has free will, which is to explain why God did not interfere in the fall of Adam and Eve in Garden of Eden. Then, however, they accept dogmas, prohibitions and various commandments, which eliminate man's free will, ordering what must not be done and what behaviors are punishable by God. This is obviously absurd.
To support my claims, I will give an example of Hitler coming to power in Germany in the 1930s, there were no only bandits and derailed people in this country. It was a normal country building democracy, as evidenced by the created Weimar Republic. Meanwhile, Adolf Hitler relatively easily transformed his nation into people who committed one of the greatest genocides in human history. The opponents indicated by the regime were murdered by young and old Germans in the belief that they were carrying out a very important mission or that they were clearing society of bad people. So they were convinced that they were doing good. Today, we wonder what power led them and all of Germany to this state. I am not saying here that Satan did it, but surely this evil is rooted in lies of power.
In this connection, it is important to realize what a powerful force lies in political activity. The leaders who use it give it in such a sophisticated manner that it looks like the truth. It's a bit like the Snake in paradise who explained to the first people that God knows good and evil. It was given in such a way that it not only deceived Adam and Eve, but still deceives believers in many religious denominations. They are firmly convinced that since God is all-knowing, He also knows evil. For them, the lie has become true and it is difficult for them to explain otherwise. It can immerse politicians in such a way that they deceive entire nations, just as in the biblical statement that Satan deceives nations.
At this point I give the next part of the definition of an evil man. He is the one who knows the truth, and yet he lies with all his might, creating his own, degenerated definition of his behavior. Unfortunately, this definition corresponds to a fairly large percentage of politicians, and not only them. This again confirms Jesus' words that we have Satan as a life guide. This is of course a non-scientific but logical definition.
