Jesus said to those who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31). Jesus counters HIs truth with lies, saying of the Devil,.. “that he was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44)

Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels is inaccurately credited with originating “The Big Lie” that ““If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” In his “Mein Kamf” HItler elaborated on the Big Lie in his diatribes against Jews.

A chief responsibility of Christ-followers is to hold to unvarnished truth. Our culture (and other cultures) use sophisticated propaganda lies to manipulate people. The Church is targeted.

A short essay in Jewish Virtual Library on the Big Lie is prescient and critical to faithful following Jesus.
