[Part 2 of 5] On the surface it looks so good. But in reality, it’s the deadly, cunningly deceptive scheme of Satan to keep us away from God: focusing on trying to be like God by means of our doing. In this episode, we examine Origin #2 of this diabolical scheme: the fall of our first parent’s Adam & Eve, and what that has to do with us today:
- How Satan managed to get Adam and Eve to turn away from God and toward sin, even though they had no history of sin and lived in an environment of face to fellowship with God, surrounded by His goodness.
- How sin springs to life when the law comes in, which is centered on DO AND LIVE.
- How we are led into sin by trying to be like God without God, caught up in doing to be “like God”.
- How false, unbiblical notions of sanctification are evidence of Satan’s scheme to keep us away from God, by distracting us with DO to BECOME LIKE GOD.
