God told Adam that if he ate of one particular tree, “you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17 NKJV). The Devil told Eve, “you shall not surely die” (Genesis 3:4 NKJV). Jesus said of the devil, “there is no truth in him…for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44 NKJV). The Devil’s lies deny the plain truth of God’s Word! The Apostles, baptized in the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, preached that sinners must “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38 NKJV). It is the Devil’s lie to say, “Repent and not be baptized for the remission of sins.” It is the Devil’s lie to say, “Repent and be saved, and then be baptized not for the remission of sins.”
