Lies of the World
Searched “biggest lie in the world”. Found #5 of 14,600,000 to be “The Biggest Lie ever told: the Christ Myth”. Excerpt: There are those who believe that we are now entering a new age, an era meant for a New World Order.

I. Just a reminder from this morning.
John 8:44-45 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him.

1 John 2:15-16 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.
Rom 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
