The Most Beautiful Lies are multifaceted, persuasive and long-lived. Beautiful Lies have more than one purpose; at least two, often more than three.

To Satan, the well-told lie is a beautiful thing; it is what Satan is all about.
When we turn our faces toward the Lord God, Who is the Truth, and we pray the Lord's Prayer, the closing lines are lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

The more any society is secularized, i.e., religiously cleansed, the less that society will be capable of recognizing Satan, the works of Satan, or even being able to tell simple right from wrong.

Yet even among those who put their faith in atheism, so long as they are capable of doing critical thinking, they will be able to discern for themselves the difference between what is true and what is false.
