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 eitherIf they don't fully accept Christ as Lord and Savior, then God has a plan B for them.
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?
â€œ...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.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?
