Why would I tell you the truth? – In the words of Satan

“In The Words (of Satan)” Lyrics by The Arrows | from the album The Arrows 2007

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you, one, the only, the father of lies!

“I’ve been here since the beginning know exactly how you work
I know all of your cravings know what makes you go berserk
Been lying from the start just to make you play a part in my infinite rebellion against the Father God

I hate everything he is and I make you hate him too
Make you hate him with your actions it’s so easy for me to do
‘Cause you like it, Sin feels good for the ego
You love it, oh, come on baby let your hair go

And all the time, I’m winding you up like my perfect little puppet, you’re my favourite robot, welcome to the show but I’m watching you and all of hell is with me too, helping me make my lies look true

Oh and there is a lie that works for everyone, everyone
A lie that opens your hearts so I can get me some more of your free will
I’m winding you, winding you
Give me the control that’s why I’m telling you
Selling you anything, everything appealing to your human way of being and I use it all against you to just keep your eyes from seeing past the life you’re living, past the moment you’re in, past the pleasure of your sin or the cigarette you’re smoking
Choking on your lust? I’ll make you drunk with pride
So deeply spun into my system that you won’t see the light
Never mind that I’m drowning you, I keep deceiving you…

`Cuz I don’t tell you about the God in heaven
Who loves you, Who yearns for you, no
I don’t tell you, about the freedom of forgiveness and truth
Why would I tell you?
Why would I tell you, the truth?

But I’ll say that millions of years ago an accident exploded
And you’re the result of this cosmic unknown with no real purpose
Created for no real intent
The reason for your living is just coincidence
So all the remains is what you can gain
Whatever meaning you attach to your days you decide
Mmm, but I help you recognize the important things in life
Introducing money, it’s the root of all, evil they say so
I attach your self worth to the salary you’re paid, be a slave to your property
Your jewelry, your cars and things
Advertise that lie up on the TV so you want that bling
Selling bit by bit the little pieces of your soul
Climbing up the ladder of economic control
Oh, the greed of man makes it so easy to pervert the Father’s plan

Or I’ll tell you…
There is a heaven but there’s many ways to get in
Keep you so confused that you stay bound to your sin
Tell you there are many ways to the same God
Keep you distracted with your methods so your heart stays hard,
I’ll make you think you’ve got spirituality, but it’s really just emotional alchemy
Oh, the vanity of self-idoltary I never let you see that it breeds
Hedonism! Whoo!
And it’s the anthem of this generation
Come on, drink it, snort it, smoke it, swallow it
Chew on my illusion of freedom til you vomit it

And still I don’t tell you about the God in heaven
Who loves you, Who yearns for you, no
I don’t tell you, about the freedom of forgiveness and truth
Why would I tell you?
Why would I tell you, the truth?”

The Truth you are not being told

If this has left you thinking about the the sobering reality of the spiritual battle that is taking place for your soul, please have a look at this presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ: https://discipleschurch.co.uk/the-gospel-of-jesus-christ/
