My demanding dad hated lies and would always tell us children not to lie to him – and we didn’t. He didn’t tolerate fools, laziness, nor apathy either. Looking back, I can appreciate his harsh attitude toward this and our other indiscretions.
As innocent and innocuous as some lies can be, did you know there will be no liars in the hereafter? Let me quote a verse of scripture for you:
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev 21:8, KJV).
You will notice that along with liars are a litany of other sins that God will judge. Yes, God is love, but he hates sin and not the sinner.
Why then do most people take the sin of lying so lightly that lying has become the norm, especially from politicians and the news media? I suppose it’s the easiest way to sway opinion one way or another. Today the atmosphere is so poisoned with lies that we must take everything said to us with a grain of salt. Lying has gotten so bad that Newspapers are faltering, newsmen are losing their jobs, and TV news is barely hanging on to its audience. CNN, one of the biggest offenders, is in the process of being sold, and Fox News, a conservative favorite, has crossed over the line in joining the radical left in its opinions.
With the president fighting for truth in voting, we are being bombarded with falsehoods from the very media that pretend to have our best interests in mind. They have been infiltrated by radical naysayers, some of whom deny common sense just to win notoriety while others deny their obvious gender, preferring to waddle in the muck and putrid mire of sin and against nature and God. Can we trust these perverts to disseminate truth to us?
With eyes that are blinded by Satan, unsaved people just can’t help themselves. They lie and cover that lie with another and yet another, and their only excuse is “I misspoke” or “I can’t remember” – meaning to say they can’t remember the lie they told in the first place. This has happened repeatedly in the courts of the land by ruthless and cunning politicians and supposed lawmen. (It could be possible that God is letting us suffer under the rule of tyrants and the uncertainty of the times in which we live.)
Lies have hurt untold millions. They have destroyed the livelihoods of some and incarcerated others-based on false testimony. Is it any wonder that one of the Ten Commandments is “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”? President Trump has just exonerated General Michael Flynn, and the Democrats are furious. May all their lies and deceit unravel before their eyes. Lying is not a trite, foolish habit — it can even cause death, and in the hereafter, it can cause exclusion unless we receive Christ and repent.
With no sense of right or wrong, atheists, agnostics and other assorted perverts are foisting their perversions on the American public by trying to change our laws.
In the recent election (which I and many others watched very closely), wholesale lies and fraud were perpetrated on the American public, bringing about the most grievous election in American history. “God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man reapeth, that shall he also sow.” And it looks like right now they are willingly sowing destruction. My warning to such people is, “Be sure your sins will find you out.” Let’s just hope it is sooner rather than later.
If an election can be won by fraud as it was in Venezuela and Cuba, we can expect our country to follow them into the abyss of deprivation. If everyday thugs and liars are left to run our country, you can bet they will run it into the ground like Chavez, Maduro and Castro have theirs.
It should be obvious to everyone in the country that Trump won the election in a landslide. Even a blind man could see it. But no, the leftists, elitists, sexual perverts and power brokers insist that they won the election and are carrying on as if they did so. Chances are that even the Supreme Court will find it hard to dislodge their folly, and even when they finally throw in the towel (if they do), there will likely be anarchy in the streets — on a grand scale. The military may have to arrest the subversives and all who tried to thwart the will of the American people, and they may have to be taken to the Guantanamo Naval Base Stockade.
By slowly infiltrating the country with godlessness and their foolish ideas of there being an actual entity known as mother nature, various human sexes, weird fashion practices and other “shades of grey” ideology — the left has all but destroyed our moral fiber and welcomed in wholesale sin and rebellion throughout our country. But ironically, when was the last time you heard the word sin? You seldom, if ever, hear it from the pulpits of America these days. The objective of wimpy church leaders is to not make any waves and keep the congregants happy with extracurricular activities. In some churches, even the Holy Spirit is used for amusement rather than discernment and strength. Speaking in strange “tongues” and “laughing in the spirit” does us no good, and rather than making us victorious, makes us victims of self-deception. Why some churches stay open is beyond me; maybe it’s the money.
Unless we find firm footing in the pages of the Bible, we are doomed. We must take it upon ourselves to be well informed and correct about doctrine for our own sense of wellbeing and power to do evangelism with the right motives.
At present, our country stands on the precipice of self-destruction, and still we don’t and won’t repent en masse – while no one is preaching the need for it. So, “If the sinner scarcely be saved, where will the sinner stand?”
P.S. I just began reading a book by Senator Ted Cruz. The title is One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History. And in this election, that may very well be the case.
