Don’t Listen to Lies

Don’t Listen to Lies

In the book of Ezekiel, Yahweh declares wrath and woe on the false prophets who speak out of their own imagination. Those false prophets disheartened the righteous and encouraged the wicked (Ezekiel 13:22). They misled Yahweh’s people. They did much harm by “lying to My people who listen to lies.”  (Ezekiel 13:19)

We are harmed by listening to, heeding, lies.

There are at least two things we must do:

We must take care how, to whom, and to what we listen

So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him. (Luke 8:18)

We should avoid listening to, heeding, some people and to ungodly assertions.

But, how can we know?

We must be able to distinguish truth from lies

The way we become more and more able to distinguish truth from lies is to know God—Father, Son, Holy Spirit—and know His word, the Bible.

God is truth (Psalm 31:5).

Jesus Christ is truth (John 14:6).

The Holy Spirit is truth (John 16:13).

The Bible is truth (John 17:17).

If a person or a position doesn’t line up with God and God’s word, it’s a lie. Be careful!

Mission Critical!

Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands far away; For truth has stumbled in the street, And uprightness cannot enter.” (Isaiah 59:14)


Father, help us know You and Your Word better. Help us be able to use Your standard in assessing truth from lies. Help us tell others of the Truth.
