John 8:43â€“45 â€œWhy do you not know what I say? Because you are unable to hear My Word. 44. â€œYou are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you wish to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45. â€œAnd because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.
