Spiritual Plagiarism (John 1:14)

deception

Satan tries to make himself sound like God (2 Corinthians 11:14). By using God’s words in a slightly altered fashion, he comes up with convincing arguments for things that simulate godliness, such as trusting in an outward regimen of self-discipline, rather than Christ’s death, for salvation (Colossians 2:23), Satan has led many astray.

God went to extremes to make sure we’d recognize His voice. He not only gave us His Word, He gave us the Word made flesh – Jesus (John 1:14) – so that we will not be easily deceived or misled. – Julie Ackerman Link

Instill within my heart, dear Lord,

A deep desire to know Your Word,

I want to learn to hear Your voice

That I may make Your will my choice. – D. De Haan

Your Word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it. – Psalm 119:140
