Naturally, A Wicked Murderer and A Lust Filled Liar
John 8:44 (KJB) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
This verse is speaking about the spiritual state of many hearts, beginning with the ancient lineage of all mankind. This truth about the nature of the devil and sin can be applied to every heart since the sin nature entered the heart of every man through the sin of Adam.
Since the onset of sin in this world a broad brush labeling every spiritually lost person a sinner can be painted in the lives of every person in this world.
Because from his birth a person is spiritually lost and recognizes the god of this world rather than rightly acknowledging God as their spiritual Father. There is a huge difference in genuinely professing to be in God’s spiritual camp and agreeing with the god of this world about the nature of sin. Each camp resides at opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum.
Agreeing with the spiritual state of the god of this world is to lust after sin by cozy up to satan.
Agreeing with God is to abhor sin and desire to separate from it. It is enjoying sweet spiritual fellowship with God.
A man is always branded by the company and character he chooses to surround himself with. A man of God identifies in spiritual agreement with the holiness and righteousness of God. While a man of this world is recognized by his propensity to sin and his familiarity with the wickedness of the god of this world.
