“We cannot assume a particular viewpoint is true just because everyone else thinks that way—or because it is what we have always believed, or because a well-known Christian author promotes that position, or because a well-meaning friend or counselor says it is right. Everything we believe and everything we do must be evaluated in the light of God’s Word. That is our only absolute authority” (Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free, p. 251).
In her book, Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free, Nancy Leigh DeMoss identifies a number of areas in which women struggle to discern truth from error. She establishes the need to study and know the Bible so that we do not fall prey to common lies of the enemy in our own hearts, about our families, within our churches, and from the surrounding culture.
DeMoss explores eight areas in which lies commonly occur: about God, ourselves, sin, priorities, marriage, children, emotions, and circumstances. She then discusses a variety of Scriptures that shed light and truth on each of these topics. If there is a particular area of weakness that resonates with you, this book is a great starting point to look further into what God`s Word has to say about the lies that can so easily entangle our hearts and minds.
