Extra Read:

Chicanery is the use of schemes, shifts, lies and artifices to draw attention from the truth. When this is accomplished, deception easily follows. This is precisely what happened to the Christians at Galatia and Samaria. Guard your mental intake. O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you (Baskaeno – to malign, fascinate by false representation) that you should not obey the truth. (Gal.3:1-5)

Jesus declared that the devil is a liar from the beginning. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
