Satan, the father of lies, has had thousands of years to hone his craft and deceive people. The Bible warns us that deception would become rampant and that many would be deceived, including some who profess to follow Jesus.
Deception is a craft, honed by tactics aimed at dismissing truth and demonizing anyone who opposes the deceiver. And unless we recognize and understand the tactics, we too, are subject to that deception.
Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss some of these tactics used by the left and how to combat it with reason and the truth of God’s Word.
