"Ye shall not surely die, in the day ye eat thereof, ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil."  Gen.  3:4,5

When the serpent told Eve she wouldn't die if she disobeyed the LORD'S command, but that she would experience a new plateau of understanding, he was not telling an outright lie.  Eve didn't drop dead the moment she ate the forbidden fruit, and she did gain a new insight into right and wrong.  But she and Adam died spiritually that very day, and the process of physical deterioration began in their bodies.  This new knowledge brought them . . .

Satan often tempts a person to live wickedly, making him think he is having fun.  The devil never tells you about guilt feelings, dread of dying, and emptiness.  So beware of Satan's half-truths.  They're more dangerous than a claim that's 100% false.

Yes, Satan is crafty and lies with great skill, He causes his victims to question God's will; But if on the Word of the LORD we depend, We'll not be deceived when the truth he would bend.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When Satan tells a half-truth, he wants us to believe the wrong half.
