Devil’s lies

Kevin Spacey as Verbal KintI forgot what I was watching yesterday, but I started reflecting on the line from The Usual Suspects by Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey), “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist.” I think lots of people, including Christians, deny the existence of the Devil and, therefore, sin. Besides this line, I thought the Devil has “3 great lies,” but I can’t think the last one. #1 is that “the devil doesn’t exist (therefore no sin),” #2 is that “we have more time (therefore salvation can wait),” and #3 is ? … is it “that we are gods?” I can’t remember and I don’t even know if the Catholic Church simplifies it this way. I found a Protestant sermon on the 8 Lies of the Devil that I’m reading now. — Anybody know the 3? Kermit?
