4 of Satan’s biggest lies to born-again believers

All of your sins (past, present, future) have been forgiven

“For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness,
and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his OLD sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NKJV)

>>> “OLD sins” is also in the KJV, RSV, NLT, AMP

“… having forgotten his purification from his FORMER sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NASB)
>>> “FORMER sins” is also in the ESV

“… forgetting that they have been cleansed from their PAST sins.” (2 Peter 1:9, NIV)
>>> “PAST sins” is also in the HCSB

John is writing to his fellow Christians …
“But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness (unrighteousness).” (1 John 1:9, NLT)
“This is an extremely important verse … all men need to be repeatedly purified from all unrighteousness – from all their sins … We must confess our sins and turn from them … We must also confess them with our actions … (John) is talking here about repentance … we must hate our sins and turn from them. This is true repentance.” (The Applied New Testament Commentary;
Dr. Thomas Hale, missionary to Nepal)


Paul warns the errant Corinthian church that their … “godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation” (2 Corin. 7:9-10, NKJV)

You are now righteous

“… you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living … So now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living” (Romans 6:16-19)

“… let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil … Whoever has been born of God does not sin (habitually) … In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God” (1 John 3:7-10)

“… who fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him” (Acts 10:35)

“But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness and a godly life … pursue righteous living” (1 Timothy 6:11, 2 Timothy 2:22)


You are now holy

“… give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.” (Romans 6:16-19)

“work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14)

“God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin … live in holiness and honor. … God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives. Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8)

“you must live as God’s obedient children … now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, ‘You must be holy because I am holy.’ ” (1 Peter 1:14-15)


You have been saved and can never lose your salvation

“… you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether (slaves) of sin leading
to (eternal) death, or (slaves) of obedience leading to righteousness”
(Romans 6:16)


“For to be carnally-minded is (eternal) death, but to be spiritually-minded is (eternal) life and peace.” (Romans 8:5-6)

“For IF you live according to the flesh you will die (eternal death); but IF by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live (eternal life).” (Romans 8:13)

“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption (eternal death), but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”
(Galatians 6:7-8)

“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of (eternal) life which the Lord has promised to
those who love Him … when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown, brings forth (eternal) death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.” (James 1:12-15)


Jesus often said. Those who love Me will obey My commandments.”

So, you’re not righteous?

Future sins are forgiven?

I guess the Apostle Paul and Jesus needed the Internet.

BCS, 2 Peter 1:9 only speaks of past sins. Not future sins. I know that Trinitarian Baptists, and Presbyterians like to throw in the word future. But, as you partially quoted 1 John 3, it does say he who sins is of the devil. Future sins isn’t even in the equation. You are to repent. Leave the sinning behind. Then follow Christ. To go back to sinning is a dog returning to eat its vomit.

Re: 4 of Satan’s biggest lies to born-again believ

Satan and his demons have always been hard at work
deceiving as many humans as possible ...
to get them to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with them,
because they know that's where they're going to end up!

That's how jealous they are of us, and how much they hate us!

Probably, the 2nd major deception was when
Satan (or one of his high-ranking angels)
appeared to Mohammed, saying he was Gabriel.
He lied about (a non-existent god called) Allah,
saying Allah sent him with the latest "truth" from heaven.

Then, poor deceived Mohammed had the Qur'an written,
resulting in many more millions of humans being deceived.

When people are spiritually deceived, they can believe all kinds of nonsense.

Take this Qur'an for instance (I've read 2 different translations of it).
In some places it says to leave the Jews and Christians alone,
while in other places it calls them infidels
and says to kill them where ever you find them!

Then, of course, we have Satan (or one of his high-ranking angels)
appearing to Joseph Smith, calling himself the angel Moroni,
resulting in the Book of Mormon being written.

The 4 headings in red underlined are examples of Satan's lies.
Thus, they are NOT true statements.
