Did Abraham Lie

It is so distressing to be taught by an eternal security teacher. Why? Because the bottom line in everything they declare about salvation security will downplay the seriousness of sinning somehow. To convince the listeners that one is forever saved, they will do anything they have to, which even includes smearing the Apostle Paul, as the worst of sinners (by a misuse of Rom. 7:14-25), to saying Abraham lied about Sarah, when he didn’t!

If you are acquainted with the misused Scriptures the perseverance of the saints people cite for support that the elect can stray into wickedness and remain therein, but still retain their salvation, then you know the Abraham lied declaration could arise. I have also noticed that they don’t readily cite a Scripture as proof for their Abraham lied teaching! One exists, but they don’t like to mention it! Let’s test their argument that Abraham lied, by going to the verse they misuse:

Abraham said of his wife Sarah, “She is my sister.” Then Abimelech king of Gerar sent for Sarah and took her. (Gen 20:2)

Did Abraham lie or is there more we need to know? The context reveals an important piece of related truth, which the Calvinists don’t want us to know about, which is found in verse 12. In that verse Abraham speaks about Sarah:

Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father though not of my mother; and she became my wife. (Gen 20:12)

Sarah was both Abraham’s wife and sister! As Cain’s wife was also his sister, Abraham’s wife was his sister too. The once saved always saved people were looking for something to try to justify their own security in sin doctrine so they distorted the truth about Abraham to do so! But wait! There is more! The same people who are willing to smear Paul and Abraham also refer to Ananias and Sapphira, who lied to the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:1-10). They are cited, by the same spiritual wolves, as an example of the sin unto death, to say a person once saved can be struck dead physically by God in the state of unrepentant sin and will be taken to heaven! All their empty words will not change reality:

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all LIARS–their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. (Rev 21:8)
