Today’s internet is a massive source of useful informaton;
but it also contains much falsehood, fake-news and lies.
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” Jn 146
And in John’s gospel he says “I tell you the truth ...” 28 times!
In a world that largely rejects him, how can we know what is true?
Today the nations are being deceived by believing four major lies.
Christians need to heed the warning of Jesus - read what he says and believe!

When Jesus was asked by his disciples about the ‘end times’, his reply began with the seven word sentence;
“Watch out that no one deceives you.”
The scriptures warn us many times about how easy it is to be deceived. e.g.
In the last days the little horn prospered in everything it did,
and truth was thrown to the ground.
He will cause deceit to prosper. Dan 812, 25
Evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
... a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Tim 313 43,4
Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast,
he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. Rev 1314
Here are four major lies that are deceiving much of the world.
1. The Evolution Theory [Contents]
What is it? [Contents]
National Geographical Society says:
Anaximander of Miletus, a Greek philosopher who lived in the 500s B.C.E. noted that human babies are born helpless. So he speculated that humans must have descended from some other type of creature whose young could survive without any help. He concluded that those ancestors must be fish, since fish hatch from eggs and immediately begin living with no help from their parents. From this reasoning, he proposed that all life began in the sea. Anaximander was correct; humans can indeed trace our ancestry back to fish. (This is a lie)
In 1859, a British man called Charles Darwin published a book called 'On the Origin of Species'. This book was based on his studies of creatures he had encountered on his travels to many overseas locations, including the Galapagos Islands. He put forward the theory that all living creatures that exist today, including human beings, have evolved over a period of perhaps millions of years, from more primitive life forms to how they are today by a process of natural selection. (This is also a lie)
|Big Bang||Stars||Sun||Molten Earth||Oceans|
The Big Bang theory is supported by evidence that space is expanding, including the red shift of light from distant galaxies and the existence of cosmic background radiation in all directions.
Evolution Theory - Challenged [Contents]
Anaximander ‘speculated’; he offered no proof.
He claimed that humans must have come from fish because fish eggs grow without any help, but human babies are helpless. This is as foolish as someone saying ‘all butchers wear blue aprons, so anyone wearing a blue apron must be a butcher.’
Anaximander was not correct! Human ancestry cannot be traced back to fish. Not scientifically anyway.
Darwin’s theory claims that all species developed over millions of years from a single ‘chance’ amoebae by ‘natural selection’ is absurd. An Amoeba proteus is a single cell (~1 mm) and its genome has 290 billion base pairs. It has 12 billion billion billions atoms. Yes, that is 12 followed by 18 zeros !! Even if all these atoms got together by chance, they would still have to be arranged correctly. And still be dead. Who would give them life?
There are currently nearly 9 million different species living in the world today.
The generation of new species by chance mutation + natural selection is only speculative. The fossil record does not have any of the proposed missing links. Furthermore any cross-breeding like a tiglon (Tiger and Lion) are invariably infertile. No one has ever observed a blue-tit mating with a coal-tit. And even if artificially ‘mated’, the eggs would not be fertile.
What about all the flora and fauna? They are not mentioned in the Evolution Theory. Although genetic modification and artificial cross-pollination can now produce a limited number of hybrid plants, you never find natural pollination by wind or bees producing a cross between a fir tree and an oak.
Why has the Evolution Theory become so popular that it is now taught as truth in the UK school curriculum? How can intelligent men believe a theory that denies that Almighty God designed and created every one of the ~ 9 million creature species and the ~10 million flora and fauna species? God created not only all the variety of species but also a suitable environment for each of them to flourish. It is amazing what lengths of speculation men will go to if they do not wish to acknowledge the Lord God.
The Consequence of Denying Creation [Contents]
What does Almighty God reveal in his Word? Is there any warning given?
Without apology, this warning quoted in full.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

Thus Scripture reveals that when proud man denies that God had any part in the amazing creation of this world, God removes his protection. And the surprising consequence of this removal of his protection is that the world welcomes satanic homosexuality as being natural. Man completely disregards what Almighty God has clearly declared: You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. Lev 1822 And because creation is rejected, the Lord God himself is also rejected, which has the additional and most profound consequences since man considers it is quite safe to abandon all of God’s commandments.
How can man be so foolish?
Yet in UK today (July 2022) the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of York and the majority of the House of Bishops welcome homosexuality and refuse to say that it is a sin. Such is their desire for popularity with wicked men. It displays a complete lack of fear of any judgement by Almighty God.
The Truth of God’s Creation [Contents]
There has been disagreement between some Christians who insist on a 6 (24 hr) day creation and scientists who are equally insistent upon the age of this world in billions of years (see table above). These views can be simply resolved.
Science is not a threat to faith nor is it the enemy of Scripture, but it can add proof to its truth and consistency. The problem arises due to the translation of Genesis 1 and 2 that uses English word ‘day’ for the 6 stages of creation and assume it means 24 hours.
The Hebrew word is ‘Yom’, which can mean:
12 hours, of daylight, 24 hours,
or often just a long period of time.
e.g. ‘The day (yom) of the Lord’. Mal 41,5 Is 136,9.
or Joshua 247 “you lived in the wilderness a long time” (a yom).
or 1 Kg 1419 “the Chronicles (the yom) of the Kings of Israel.”
Tradition has interpreted ‘day’ in Genesis as only being 24 hours. So many Christians are frightened to question this.
There are several reasons why the Hebrew ‘yom’ would be better translated as ‘age’ in Genesis. Or maybe just use the word ‘yom’.
1. On the 1st ‘Yom’, God called the light day (= 12 hours of daylight c.f. night).
2. On the 3rd ‘Yom’, God separated the land and the sea. He could have formed the continents and separated Africa and Europe from the Americas in 24 hours (at 40 mph!), but the Lord God chose to use the one inch/year ‘continental drift’ (plate tectonics) with the solid land masses (about 10 miles thick) floating on a molten core.
3. Also on the 3rd ‘Yom’, God created all the 10 million flora and fauna species. He could have created all the oak and ash trees in one moment, but Gen 112 says that he created ‘plants yielding seed according to their own kinds’. This implies that he designed them to multiply. And they did so. Over the ‘yom’ they grew into vast forests. and formed all the coal and oil seams that we are selfishly exploiting today. These trees were designed to have photosynthesis by which they absorb the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plus water, plus the sun’s radiant energy and use the hydro carbons to make wood (their growth) and discharge oxygen over many millennia (not 24 hours) in preparation for all the breathing creatures that he was about to create in the next two ‘yoms’. They continue their designed work today to sustain life on earth. This is no accident or chance happening.
4. On the 4th and 5th ‘Yoms’, God created the 7 million species of fish, birds and animals (maybe more as some like the dinosaurs have become extinct). He could easily have created shoals of mackerel, herds of elephants or lots of families of mice. But he chose not to. Otherwise he would not have told each species to “Be fruitful and multiply.” They were obedient, and they still are. God did not design one amobea to mutate and form all the species, he created them “each according to their kinds”. What incredible, ingenious variety and beauty.
5. Gen 24 summarises the creation saying, “in the day (the 'yom') that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.” The ‘yom’ here is obviously 6 days.
Thus this ‘long yom’ is not denying either science or God’s Word. It is using God’s gift of science to confirm his gift of the Bible - which his Son Jesus wholly endorsed when he walked in his creation 2,000 years ago.
God created Adam and then Eve, just two perfect people. And soon men filled the earth. The Bible reveals that God created man in his own image, with a soul and a spirit, different from all the animals. They certainly did not gradually evolve from monkeys! Why? Because monkeys and all other creatures, live and die. Humans live, their body dies, but their souls live for ever.
There are many other aspects which God planned and created to make this unique earth so very special.
It is profoundly stupid to think that God's incredible, beautiful, ingenious, design and creation was just an accident. The power to make energy and matter from nothing, its simplicity, complexity, variety, balance, colour, ... from the microscopic to the millions of light-years, and all with such apparently simple 'building blocks' just the 118 atomic elements that make up all the organic and inorganic molecules throughout the universe.
The orbit of this earth around the sun is nearly circular and at the right distance so that it is neither too hot, like Venus (480o C), or too cold like Mars (-63o C).
The earth rotates once every 24 hours. But what if it was only once every 243 days like Venus? The temperature range between day to night would make life impossible. Also a too high rotation speed would reduce gravity.
God made the Earth’s axis tilted at 23o to its orbit. This gives us the seasons.
He made the molten core magnetic which deflects the sun’s cosmic rays so that we are not radiated.
God also created the Ionosphere to absorb the dangerous UV and X rays.
He designed the carbonate-silicate cycle that weathers rocks to produce soil.
He placed the huge Jupiter in a greater orbit than earth to protect us from the majority of space debris. God’s design and creation includes the hundreds of different cycles: rain, carbon, food, plant compost, ... and in all living bodies: blood sugar, oxygen, enzymes/digestion, temperature ... also the largely self-healing, re-generation of cells in flesh, organs and bones, ...
How can anyone not marvel with wonder and be grateful to the gracious God who did all this and much more for us in his creation.
Evolution has Other Major Results [Contents]
1. God is side-lined; he has no significance for a modern man who believes in evolution. Tragically they think that God can safely be ignored - and so can all his laws that they consider 'restrictive'.
2. Believing such an obvious major lie reveals how easily wicked men can be deceived.
3. Men worship 'Mother Nature' instead of Almighty God, who designed and created it all. Hindus and New Age claim God is in everything and everyone.
4. Man becomes even more arrogant and proud of his achievements.
He thinks it is by his innate ability that he is so much superior to monkeys.
5. "Survival of the fittest" when applied to humans inevitably leads to genocide and war. It was the basis of the Nazi killing of Jews, gypsies and coloureds.
2. Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) [Contents]
Warming due to human activity by increased CO2 and methane emission (AGW) has had undue publicity recently especially at COP 26 with each speaker trying to create fear for the future. The two greatest needs were not directly addressed.
1. Minimise our use of oil fuel to leave some for future generations.
2. Share our wealth with the world’s poor.
While there is no doubt that there has been global warming since the ‘Little Ice Age’ in 1750, the cause is mostly natural changes in the sun’s radiation, not CO2.
The claim that it is all due to ‘greenhouse gases’ is a major lie.
Please consider the following:
a) The Written Historical Record [Contents]
There was a global warm period when Rome ruled the world, then it cooled slightly before another warm period 1000 to 1400 AD. During this time there is record of wine growing in Scotland and the Vikings establishing agriculture in Greenland. By 1750 the northern hemisphere had cooled so much that fairs were held on the frozen Thames. Since then the world has warmed significantly. These natural cycles were not caused by the huge increase in population and the industrial use of fossil fuels. Biassed climatologists have tried to minimise these cycles by using unreliable data from such sources as tree rings. While the written historical record does not give the temperature in degrees, it does give a reliable picture of what men could do or not do. Graphs that deny this suggest that they have purposefully distorted the figures to produce their desired result.
b) Data Accuracy and Computer modelling [Contents]
The whole AGW debate hinges upon trying to obtain a single global temperature for the whole year to an accuracy of better that 0.10C. There has certainly been warming since 1750. The Thames does not freeze in December and there are some very good vineyards at least in southern Britain. But IPCC only claim a 1.5o C rise since 1850.
Consider the following for obtaining a single global figure:
The number of weather stations required to cover the 57 million miles2 of land.
The number of buoys for reading on 140 million miles2 of sea.
The miles2 area per measuring station varies very considerably.
Time of day when readings are taken.
Allowance for varying height above sea level (decreases 1o F / 300 feet).
Inconsistent shading and allowance for urbanisation.
Varying weather conditions.
Instrument accuracy. etc etc
Yet the HadCRUT126.96.36.199 Met Office official temperature data set from 1850 to 1940 given to 5 decimal places and since 1940 to 6 decimal places !!!
How many thermometers are consistently accurate to even 0.1o C ?
This (and the NASA) official data set may seem impressive, but it is very bad science to issue results that are 10,000 times more accurate than the measuring instruments, especially when considering all the above problems in getting a single figure for the whole world.
When it comes to computer modelling for future trends the different assumptions made are considerable and as the following graph shows, their exaggerated warming reveals very poor results by very biassed men.
c) Severe Political / Financial Pressure [Contents]
There is considerable evidence that government, university and other authorities have exerted very strong pressure to stop anyone expressing anything but the official line on AGW. Pressure like losing ones job, cut in finance, block of any article in scientific publications, etc. For details of this, see ‘The World Turned Upside Down’ by Melanie Phillips pages 113 to 120.
d) Hidden Detail [Contents]
The Met Office published their latest temperature data set in July 2021, just before the COP 26.
The data published is not contested. The graph from 1850 to 2020 was plotted using the whole range of time.
The next graph used exactly the same Met Office data set (+ NASA), but the time scale was reduced to just the last 7½ years.
And tells a very different story.
The average Global Temperature actually fell, while CO2 continued to rise !!
But they did not publish this information, since it was so against their mantra.
They obviously hoped that no one would bother to download their data set and plot this revealing graph.
Try, and check it out !
What they published was true, but the embarrassing portion was hidden in the mass of detail.
Click here for Met Office Data set (Use back arrow to return)
Click here for NASA Data set (Use back arrow to return)
Good Scientists will always welcome and examine new evidence. But the problem remains that Government, the BBC, the Met Office, NASA, NOAA, the IPCC etc are all thoroughly biassed and have a single mantra that increased CO2 causes AGW and AWG is a disaster for all.
e) Why Such Bias / Lies? [Contents]
The honest answer is, I do not know.
There must be a reason. It could well be supposed that it will be used to increase the control of those in power. As most rich people work to keep and increase their wealth; so most powerful men (and women) like to do the same with their dominion and influence over others.
3. The Palestinians are Not an Ancient People [Contents]
Fake History [Contents]
The Palestinian claim to be the ancient people who inhabited Palestine is false.
Can you name any Palestinian leader before Yassir Arafat?
Does Wikapedia give any? No! Why not? Because there weren't any!
Before 1964 (when Arafat founded the PLO) there were no 'Palestinian' people.
In 1947 the UN voted to partition the British mandate which gave 30% of the land to the Jews and the remainder to the Arabs (Transjordan). Article 181 only mentions Jews and Arabs. There was no mention of Palestinians because they didn’t exist. There were only Palestinian Jews and Palestinian Arabs.
In 1964, the Egyptian born Yassir Arafat founded the PLO (the Palestine Liberation Organisation) to try to destroy the Jewish state of Israel.
In December 1995 Arafat magnified his lie when Israel gave control of Bethlehem to Arafat. He repeatedly said, “Jesus was a Palestinian, Jesus was a Palestinian!”
Again the world ‘bought’ his lie. They had forgotten that even the Roman, Pilate, wrote on the Cross, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.”
As the saying goes, “Make a lie big enough and say it often enough and everyone will believe it.”
The Palestinian lie is a good example.
True History [Contents]
Since 1004 BC when David captured Jerusalem from the Canaanite Jebusites, it has only ever been the capital city of the Jews. In 135 AD Rome put down the Bar Kochba rebellion by the Jews and to perpetuate their victory with the maximum insult they renamed the land ‘Syria Palaestina’ (Roman for Philistine).
Since then, Jerusalem has been (re)captured by a succession of Muslims, Crusaders, Moguls, etc and from 1517 to 1917 by Turks (the Ottoman Empire).
The population of Jerusalem (from Wikapedia)
In Nov 1917 the British published the Balfour Declaration, which said. “His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people ...” A month later General Allenby defeated the Turks.
After WW1 at San Remo in 1922 the entire League of Nations met and unanimously declared: "Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country."
This international legal agreement recognised the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine as a pre-existing right, not a newly-granted gift. Furthermore it has never been rescinded.
This same conference also formed the 22 new Arab states, including Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon, and Egypt. So the formation of Israel in the 22% of the British Mandate not given to Jordan, has the same international legal status as all the other new Arab states !!
It may be a surprise to many that the 1922 San Remo Agreement was unanimous; the Arabs raised no objections to the Jews returning to their homeland. But this has been largely forgotten.
Once the Arabs had their international status and their boundaries established, they suddenly realised that the remains of the British Mandate not given to Trans-Jordan, was going to be ruled by Jews, they started rioting. To their shame, the British sided with the oil-rich Arabs and eventually in 1947 the UN passed Article 181 that gave just half the land west of the Jordan river to the Jews, to Israel. The Arabs immediately declared war on the Jewish state. By the gracious hand of Almighty God, who enabled the Jews to fight for their lives, the Jordanians only occupied part of the West Bank and the Old City of Jerusalem. They were not able to annihilate Israel.
(The UN took over from the League of Nations in 1946 inheriting all their treaties and property)
After continued Arab threats war broke out again in 1967. This time Israel managed to expel Jordan from Judea (the West Bank) and Egypt from Sinai - in just 6 days. Since then The Arabs have claimed that Israel is the ‘Occupier’ of their land - all of it, from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean Sea. They were again defeated when they made a surprise attack on Israel at Yom Kippur in 1973.
Arafat founded the PLO in 1964. He spent his whole life organising terror and extreme hatred against the Jews. Sadly for both Arabs and Jews, this satanic leader was often successful.
1970 Arafat and his terrorists threatened King Hussein and was expelled to Lebanon. (Called ‘Black September’).
1982 Arafat forced to flee from Lebanon and went to Tunis.
1993 Arafat signs Oslo Accords and returns to Israel - but never kept them.
The PLO Charter that calls for the extinction of Israel has never been changed.
The Roman emperor Constantine started persecuting the Jews in 310 AD.
The world led by Satan has continued its efforts to exterminate the people Almighty God has chosen with pogroms, expulsions, Crusades. It has not ceased today with the PA, Hamas, Hezbullah, Iran, Islam and even the UN !
God’s Covenant with Israel [Contents]
As the Lord God, the Creator of the whole universe, declares:
The earth is the Lord's and everything in it. Ps 241
And he exercised his right to give a tiny strip of land, the size of Wales, to Jews.
The Lord appeared to Abraham and said,
“To your offspring I will give this land." Gen 127
The world may not like his choice and resist it.
But there it stands, solid as a rock.
“I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.” Gen 177,8
How Will it All End? [Contents]
War will continue to the end. Dan 926
All the world will join together and attack the Jews in Jerusalem. But who will win?
“Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it. On that day, declares the LORD, I will strike every horse with panic, and its rider with madness. But for the sake of the house of Judah I will keep my eyes open, when I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. Then the clans of Judah shall say to themselves, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem have strength through the LORD of hosts, their God.’ ... And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zech 122-5
Do the Jews deserve this favour? No! And neither do we Christians.
None the less, God has a gracious plan that will be fulfilled.
For all the redeemed, there will be no more lies, no more wickedness or war.
God’s glorious, holy and eternal kingdom will be established.
I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced ... On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness. Zech 1210 131 What a day of rejoicing that will be.
“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”
Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘
Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ ”
And he added,
“These are the true words of God.” Rev 196-9
4. The God of Love will Not Judge the World [Contents]
Few sermons today speak about sin, or declare that everyone without exception is born sinful, and especially that its consequence of sin is death! Ro 623
Many Church leaders desire to be popular rather than truthful. But the purpose of Jesus fulfilling the plan to be the crucified Passover Lamb of God was to redeem us; to pay the death penalty for our sin, which we cannot pay. How else can Almighty God forgive us? The Cross was no accident; it was planned and prophesied from the beginning. The only road into heaven for all eternity is that we have to plead with God for mercy and believe that Christ’s sacrifice for us is sufficient. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. ... Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already.” Jn 316,18
Most church-goers and many others believe that Jesus was a real person, and even that he was the ‘Son of God’. They believe that he set a good example. That he said and did many good things. But the big lie comes in not believing why he came; why he had to be crucified so that we are not, as he said, condemned.
No man is able to earn the forgiveness of God, however hard he may try.
Paul taught the Corinthians the truth, not the modern lie. He said, The word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. ... Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, and we might add that today many try to be good and earn approval.   But Paul preached: Christ crucified ... the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Co 118-24
Believing in why Jesus had to come is the only way to receive God’s forgiveness and not be condemned.
The deceptive lie is believing that the wages of sin is not death and that our sin is only an unfortunate and occasional occurrence, which we can mostly learn to overcome.
And thus the Cross was just a sad, needless misfortune. What blasphemy!
