The enemy tempted Eve in Genesis 3 by asking, "Did God really say?" to plant a seed of unbelief and distrust in her heart. He then proceeded to twist‐‐ slightly‐‐ the true words of God. He does the same today. We grab onto these twisted words because they sound close enough to be true. They are the lies we tell and the lies we embrace based on bad theology‐ from elevating cultural context above Biblical context, lifting verses out of context, or simply wanting quick comfort for ourselves or others. We use these words to comfort and judge and to condone and condemn. But it's not what God really said.
