Jesus Never Said

Applyingmybeliefs

I hear statements made that begin with those words – Jesus never said.  As my faith began to build over the years I have become wary of all statements like that.  Whenever I hear that or its many variations, I think of this interesting piece of  scripture:

Gen 3:1-2 – Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.  He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”

Although the scripture doesn’t actually say this was the devil speaking, it is traditionally thought that the snake/serpent was indwelt by him.  The talking serpent says “Did God actually say?” an equivalent statement to “Jesus never said” in motivation.  They are both denials of God’s truth in an attempt to get something the speaker wants.  I guess there is a small lesson…
