Bible Secret Number 13 

Does God Ever Lie?

Would God ever cause people to believe a falsehood a lie?
 
While we are told explicitly that there are two things in which it is impossible for God to lie (that is in regard to his promises and oaths to mankind and to angels Hebrews 6:18), God has caused people to believe falsehoods in the past. "The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets" (I Kings 22:23). If people wish to continue in wickedness and deceivableness, God will retort in kind (II Thessalonians 2:10) for we are told that God will also cause delusion in the future to the wicked. "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie" (II Thessalonians 2:11).
