Not too long ago the top American pastime was baseball and football but it seems to me that the top American pastime of today has become telling and believing lies. Lying has become a national movement.
Telling and believing lies is the infallible rule for living in national politics, the scientific community, our educational system, national media, business, and even in religion. It appears to me that most everyone either wants to believe lies or they are being deceptive themselves. There seems to be a codependency between liars and their enablers in America.
Our government representatives peddle lies one after another. There is no end to their deception. They say they want to reduce government spending but then continually increase it. They say they will not raise taxes but they raise them anyway via the back door. They say they will be open and accountable but then they do most everything in secret. They say they will have a moral administration but then appoint the most immoral people to positions of power. They swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States but then continually subvert what it says.
The scientific community lies when they claim to use the scientific method but their “scientific method” is really controlled by politics and the money brokers giving them grants. The scientific community promotes lies about evolution, global warming, uniformitarianism, Keynesian economics, etc. Truthful scientists that do not agree with the science mafia enforcers are marginalized and ostracized.
The educational system is controlled by secular humanist and Marxist liars that brainwash and indoctrinate the minds of children. Your children cannot get through this lying public fool system without coming out with a lying mind. Those told the truth outside the lying system still have to lie to be approved by the professers of that system. Students cannot get though the public fool system without outwardly agreeing that sex perversion is normal, that they descended from animals and that truth is relative.
National mainstream news media has become the fourth leg of a lying leftist controlled deep state. They tell people half-truths, fake news and lies as a means to their end. They do not fairly cover or they downplay anything that might be embarrassing to their secular humanist Marxist cause. Other than a few exceptions and alternative news, if mainstream reporters do not tote the liberal party line by lying they can forget about any lasting career with national news media.
In business dealings absolute truth does exist. That truth is that most everyone that you are talking to are lying through their teeth for their own gain. I think today we have all experienced those that lie and tell us what they think we want to hear to our face in order to screw us behind our backs. Don’t expect special treatment from most that call themselves Christians either.
Liars tell us that Islam is a religion of Peace while our men go home in body bags because many in Islam take the Koran literally and kill those they call infidels. Liars tell us all religions contain truth and that all religions lead to God. However, the real truth is that any religion outside of true Christianity leads to deception and eternal separation from God.
Liars even claiming to be Christians tell us that biblical doctrine is not important and that Christian biblical truths needs to be redefined. Liars tell us that God is a force that we are part of and that we can speak our own realities into existence. Liars also tell us that the Bible is not the word of God, that Jesus was not God, that we do not sin and that Jesus never died for our sins. The list of lies even in American Christianity could fill volumes.
The bible says that in the last days people would believe lies. It says that people would say that good is evil and evil is good. We certainly have arrived. If you have not seen a liar today you probably have been home all day (some have not looked in the mirror). After all, lying and believing lies has become a top American pastime.
So I might end on these notes of caution from scripture.
Pr 29:12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.
1 Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Re 21:8 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.
The good news for believers is that those saved by Christ are forgiven liars.
