What does John 8:45 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 8:45

And because I tell you the truth
And no lie, the whole truth of the Gospel, and particularly the truth of his divine sonship:

ye believe me not;
to such an infatuation and judicial blindness were they give up, to disbelieve him, because he told the truth, and to believe a lie, that they might be damned; which showed them to be the children of the devil, and under his power and influence.
