John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

( John 8:44 )

God is not lying in this passage, Jesus is making it very clear that the father of all lies is Satan.

Attempting to make the case that this is an example of God lying gets complicated. Trying to make this into a lie requires saying that Jesus is falsely accusing Satan of lying, but since, technically, Satan would have to be real in order for this to matter then the atheist has chosen to believe that the Bible is authoritative in order to make the claim.

Why would an atheist accept the Bible as authoritative? This is a level of confusion that the reprobate mind will sink to that is basically depravity. Anything goes, even citing the Bible as authoritative in order to say that the Bible is false.

The atheist is facultatively applying authoritative status to the Bible for the purpose of making the case that the Bible is inconsistent.
