The Biggest Lie Expanded Edition

The Biggest Lie

The biggest lie that’s ever been told to you or to someone you know is that you or they can NEVER go to heaven because of something awful they did, that Jesus would not forgive what happened NO MATTER WHAT. At God’s prompting, if you invite Jesus Christ into your heart, proclaim Him your your Lord and Savior, and ask forgiveness for your sins, YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN NO MATTER WHAT, and NOBODY can take your salvation (eternal life in heaven) away from you. Jesus said in John 10:28-29 (NASB), “‘and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.'”

The Unforgivable Sin

Rejecting Jesus Christ as the one and only Savior leaves an unbeliever without any hope for salvation. Therefore, rejecting the one and only pardon is the unpardonable sin. John 3:36: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.”


So why is it that people LIE to you in the first place? Here are some reasons, but the most basic reason is that it’s a condition of the human heart, and nobody can change the heart except God. “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9; NIV)

Reasons Why People Lie to You

  1. To manipulate you – “Mary, you are one of the last ones to endorse the project. Surely you want to be part of the team.”
  2. To not offend you – “Yes Karen, that IS a lovely dress.”
  3. To withhold a portion of the truth from you – ” Sales are up 30%!”  … when in fact they are not, to try to get you to buy into something big that is not big.
  4. To avoid an inconvenience – ” Tell them I’m not in the office.”
  5. To excuse their failure – ” I was late due to heavy traffic.”
  6. To exaggerate to take your money – “85% of the items are sold out” states the advertisement, when in fact the figure is much lower.
  7. To deceive – ” We can do the job for 15% below the lowest bidder… and on time.”
  8. To cajole – Sometimes called “tickling of the ears.” In this contest, “cajole” refers to “telling you what you want to hear rather than the truth.” In relation to God’s word, it may be out of ignorance that they simply do not know the truth of God’s word.

Given the seriousness of the problem, perhaps our prayer should echo that of the Psalmist, “Save me, O Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.”  (Psalm 120:2)

Because God somberly forewarns us, “No one who practices deceit will dwell in My house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in My presence…  All liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Psalm 101:7; Revelation 21:8b)

So, even though you get lied to and don’t always know it, there is the ONE lie that’s actually NOT a lie. Nothing can keep you out of Heaven other than to deny Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

Only God Can Save You

If you’ve never accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, the fact that you are even wondering about salvation is strong evidence that God is working in your heart, for only He can save you…no preacher, no person, no magic words or phrases, not even you can save you.

What Jesus Said About Being Saved

Jesus said in John 6:44, ““No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.” This verse means that it is the Father, by His grace, who saves us, no one or no other thing can save us.

What You Can Do Right Now

If God is prompting you in your heart, invite Jesus Christ invite into your heart. Proclaim Him your Lord and Savior. Ask forgiveness of your sins.”

Next Step to Take

Your next step is to get into a good Bible-based church online or in-person. And spend 5 to 15 minutes each day with God; you can easily do that by reading his word, the Holy Bible. A good place to start is by reading one verse a day (about 5 minutes) in the Book of Proverbs; this book contains all of the wisdom you will ever need on how to live). Then read one verse in the Book of John; this book will explain to you what Jesus is all about, that he came to earth not to condemn the world but to save the world: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:6 NIV) .

You can reach God any time that you want to by going to his Word, the Bible. “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12; NIV)

The Spirit of God (all known as the Holy Spirit) uses the Word of God to help Christians become more like the Son of God (Jesus Christ).
