Genesis 3:1

“NOW the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”

The first thing Satan did in the Garden of Eden was to attack the integrity and the authority of the very Word of God. He is still doing that today.

7 Examples of Satan’s Lies About God’s Word:

1. The Mormons


They use a few verses from the Bible (King James Bible or Joseph Smith’s “Inspired Version”) but rely mostly on the Book of Mormon; The Doctrines and Covenant; The Pearl of Great Price; and teachings of the Mormon prophets and other LDS “general authorities,” and also the Ensign and Liahona magazines.

2. Jehovah’s Witnesses


The New World Translation of the Bible; Reasoning From the Scriptures; You Can Live Forever in Paradise Earth; and the Watchtower and Awake! Magazines. 

3. The Unification Church – Moonies


Divine Principle, by Sun Myung Moon; Outline of the Principle; Level 4; and selected portions of the Bible.

4. Christian Science


Science and Health, With Key to the Scripture; Miscellaneous writings; Manual of the Mother Church; and books by Mrs. Eddy.  The Bible - not as reliable.

5. Unity School of Christianity


Unity Magazine; Lessons in Truth; Metaphysical Bible Dictionary; the Bible is reinterpreted with “hidden” meanings.

6. The New Age Movement

No holy book.  Use selected Bible passages; I Ching; Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist writings; Native American beliefs; and writings on astrology, mysticism, and magic.


7. 7th-Day Adventists

The process of inspiration - “God inspired men - not words” “describe to the best of their ability” “The Bible is divine and human combined.” The writings of Ellen G. White are inspired (over 600 published titles).  They have their own paraphrase: The Clear Word. 


A Few Others:


Let them interpret the scriptures for you.


Plain Truth magazine, TV program - The World Tomorrow, assorted booklets, and the Bible.


Spiritualist Manual, Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ, the Bible (selected portions), and others.

6. “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

7. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”

Psalms 12:6-7

“...yea, hath God said...” (Genesis 3:1)
