Is God a Liar?

I have a bunch of questions about the Bible and God. I’ve never believed in God so I sat down and started reading the Bible. Within the first 4 pages I had seriously 150 questions. God made the serpent in the tree of knowledge that serpent lied to Eve then Eve lied to Adam. Why? So life started out on lies?

Life didn’t really start out on lies.  Life in the Garden of Eden started out perfectly, and we aren’t told how long it continued that way before man chose to sin.  But, yes, then man ruined it by falling into sin.  These are not simple issues, but I would suggest the four articles below from

35) BD17-01 Satan, the Enemy of Our Souls

36) BD17-02 The Attack on the Woman

37) BD18-01 The Fall Into Sin

38) BD18-02 The Results of the Fall

Jesus is actually God showing himself to us? But yet Jesus is God’s son. But now I’m hearing Jesus is actually God. I’m sorry but I don’t trust liars & it seems to me God is nothing but a liar and enjoys deceiving people.

Yes, I believe that Jesus is God, but this is one of the most controversial and difficult subjects in the Bible.  Please see the short article at for clarification.

Everybody that made god mad in the beginning was killed by the flood. Why doesn’t he just get rid of the evil and keep all good doers?

All men (except Jesus Christ) were born with an old sin nature, so none of us is good (Isaiah 64:6). So, God had made a plan to be able to deal justly with sin, and yet deal with us sinners in grace and give us eternal life.  Please see:

If Adam & Eve started life then we’re all related and incest was the beginning of everything. It all makes no sense.

Well, we’re all related, but not as a result of incest.  In the Garden of Eden, God told Adam and Eve to populate the earth (Genesis 1:28).  Obviously, with only one man and one woman on earth, Adam and Eve began their family with each other.  And, for the same reason, there was not yet a need for a law against incest, until Leviticus 18.

Plus everything has to come from something. If God made all this, where did He come from, and why does he let evil people murder & rape children and let people make really harmful diseases? Like I said the first 4 pages of the Bible just shows me He’s nothing but a liar and deceiver. I’m really trying to believe but I honestly don’t trust liars, but I’m seriously looking for help on this topic. 

The Bible doesn’t deal with the subject of where God came from.  He does let bad things happen to us, but I don’t think this would be happening if man hadn’t first disobeyed God through sin.  If He were to ultimately let bad things happen to us, he wouldn’t have saved us from our own sin by His plan of salvation through the death of (the perfect) Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins.  Again, please see the articles noted above for more clarification.

Bible study may seem difficult in the beginning, but it gets easier as you start understanding its concepts.  I would suggest that you read the series of Basic Bible Doctrine articles at
