Satan is an expert on “perversion!”
- He perverts the Word of God! (Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”)
- He perverts the Worship of God! (John 4:23, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”) – The fact that “true worshippers” worship in truth implies that there are false worshippers who do NOT worship in truth. Also, Revelation 3:9 references the “synagogue of Satan.” A synagogue is a place of worship.
- He perverts the Work of God! (2 Timothy 2:5, “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”) Satan has man “serving” God in all kinds of unscriptural ways.
- He perverts the Way of Salvation! (2 Peter 2:1, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”)
