Following the considerations of this morning’s sermon, we look at a passage in John’s Gospel and seek to answer the following questions:

  • Why is it that the country is in such decline into wickedness?
  • Why is the church in such a low spiritual condition?
  • Is it simply because of indwelling sin in believers?

We discover that whilst our sin is a major factor, we must also recognize the work of Satan. We look at one of his primary ways of operating - the lie - and discover how he seeks to deceive the world and the Church.

Finally, we are encouraged to engage in the spiritual warfare that Christ calls us to as true believers and not to listen to the lies of Satan, who wants to make us ineffective in our walk with the Lord.
