Sin entered the world when the Devil tempted Eve, and she gave in to it! The Devil questioned God’s Word: “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1 NKJV). The Devil contradicted and denied God’s Word: “You will not surely die” (Genesis 3:4 NKJV). The Devil promised humans could know everything God knows: “your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5 NKJV). The Devil has not changed His tactic. Jesus has said His Gospel preached to every creature promises: “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16 NKJV). The Devil asks: Has God really commanded water baptism? The Devil says: You can be saved if you’re not baptized. The Devil says: You will know you’re saved as if God has told you. Conquer sin, obey God.
