Lies and Other Stupid Things You Tell God and Yourself.


1. I can’t afford to pay tithes.

2. Tithes were under the Law, I’m not. So, I don’t have to pay tithes.

3. This is not men’s apparel. I bought it in the women’s department.

4. God doesn’t have a problem with my ring.


5. It’s OK to go to professional sporting events.

6. This TV won’t hurt me. I can control it.

7. There’s nothing wrong with how I’m dressed. It’s the man’s problem if he is bothered by how revealing or tight my clothes are. They should turn their head.

8. Trimming the dead ends of my hair is healthy and will make it grow, plus the use of castor oil for hair will help me out a lot too. God doesn’t care.

9. I’m not convicted.


10. I’m not being fed here.

11. It’s OK to drink wine.

12. The Bible isn’t against make-up.

13. I’m too sick to go to church tonight.

14. I can’t drive in the rain, so I’m not going to church.


15. The pastor hates me.

16. No man has the right to tell me what to do.

17. I think it, so I might as well say it.

18. I don’t need to pray through, they’re the ones with the problem.

19. I can’t help it. Boys will be boys. This is how God made me.



21. I have a right to my own opinion.

22. Trust your heart.

23. What I’m doing isn’t hurting anyone but me.

24. All conservatives are harsh and have a bad spirit.


25. The Lord told me…

26. I can read and interpret the Bible for myself.

27. The church is full of hypocrites

28. If I go up to the altar, people will think something is wrong with me.

29. I can’t worship with that style of music.


30. God doesn’t look on the outside. He only looks on the inside.

  1. Brother Ballestero, I just recently heard one of your messages on Holy Ghost radio and have listened to many more since! You have been a tremendous blessing to me and my family. I also just recently bought and received your book (Inside Mercy’s House). Each one of my children, including my wife have enjoyed it immensely. Since subscribing to your blog about a month ago, there has been two different times that God has confirmed a message I was about to preach through one of your blogs. Just want to thank you for your dedication to the One and True God Jesus Christ! I am thankful for men of God that have not wavered in these last days! If you ever come this way to the state of Maine please let me know. I would love to meet you!

  2. Thank you again Elder, we are in the generation that loves a lie! Not only do they lie to themselves and God they want preachers to lie as well and tell them they are alright just like they are!
    Thank God, for the Clear Note and Certain Sound!

  3. Bro. Ballestero,
    That list looks familiar. I have heard most of those as many pastors have and I have seen many in attitudes.
