Joh 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
I have written on this subject numerous times in the past but it really cannot be repeated too often. Satan is a murderer and a liar. Not just a liar such as we think of someone being a liar. But the devil has NO truth in him. So that when he speaks, when his lips are moving, he is lying. Every time. And he gives birth to lies – he is the father of lies.
The Lord Jesus told his enemies that they were the children of the devil. That this liar was their father and therefore they operate in harmony with his nature, which they share.
RASNs (revilers, abusers, sociopaths, narcissists) lie. They lie all the time. As hypocrites they wear a lying disguise. When they gaslight someone, they are lying. Whey they accuse, they are lying. And we must wise up to this. You know the typical scenario in churches, for example. The RASN is believed and his victim is rejected. “Oh, I just cannot believe that he would do such things. I know him.” But you don’t know him. You only know the fake persona he presents.
RASNs can look right at the camera, crocodile tears streaming down their face, and lie. “Please, please help me find my wife,” he sobs. “I can’t go on without her.” And the truth? He murdered her and hid her body someplace. But people are taken in by his lies. Even when he is found out, there are people who still refuse to believe the undeniable evidence of his guilt.
RASNs lie. They speak, and they lie. If you aren’t wise, you will end the conversation just absolutely convinced that the thing is the victim’s fault, that the RASN is an eminently holy saint and he (or she) is the one who is the victim.
Joel Ripkin was a serial killer in the New York area. He murdered 17 women over quite a few years until he was finally caught driving on the highway with #17 in a tarp in the back of his pickup. He never showed any remorse at all. He calmly recounted the horrors he had committed. No empathy. No conscience.
The RASNs we encounter may not be serial killers, but they share the very same lying, murderous spirit of their father the devil. We MUST come to realize that a person can look right at you, calm and collected, and every word coming out of their mouth be a lie.
