The King and the Truth-Telling Enemy

What makes the enemy so powerful? The answer might surprise you. We know that he is the father of lies, yet we often fail to recognize that his power in our lives stems from his ability to tell the truth. He doesn’t come as a buffoon and is not easily disproved. Instead he comes with an armload of truths—and then he offers a twist. And it is that twist that makes him so dangerous.

What hope that we can recognize how he twists the truth, when we are so easily deceived? This passage shows us the answer.
