No offense but that verse is off Context and future tense?....... That's part of why I justified believing in an old earth, God doesn't lie... or tempt to do evil either
So am I now judged as ludicrous, because I regard the scripture as an historical narrative (as in global flood hypothesis) ? Or if I go about to support creative fiat (as in the intelligent design movement)? And if I then go about, using scientific methodology to only support this, why is it considered a foul?
Do not the evolutionists also presuppose the scientific findings of biology and geology to be supportive of an original premise given by Darwin?
If they don't fully accept Christ as Lord and Savior, then God has a plan B for them.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.Ã¢â‚¬Â
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12.
No amount of evidence can stop God's command to believe a lie, because were not fighting against evidence, but God's command.
on another topic,... Can God tempt you?
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:" James 1:13 KJV
We can discuss it in the bible Q&A if you want?
