What happened to truth?
Does anybody really care? At every level of society, we find deception, lies, greed, and corruption. In personal relationships, we can’t believe what people say!
How has America fallen so far?
The more God is forced out of main stream America, the greater our demise–the greater
What’s the bent, spin, hidden agenda in all areas of life? We are more invested in believing what agrees with our culture, political, or religious bent that we really don’t care about truth.
We prefer status quo thinking and never get out of our tiny self-contained restrictive box we live in and ask any hard questions.
Where do we get our news? One source, many sources? The only newspaper I read is the Wall Street Journal–it’s my plumb line for news. Seek truth from many sources and see if there is agreement. Sometimes, if you can discover truth, you can find agreement over many sources.
We are so easily deceived and willing to believe a lie. One of the hardest lessons I learned in life was about relationships. I was so in love with a couple of guys, I was stupid enough to believe what they said was true. After the devastation, I asked God what happened and he said:
You chose to be deceived!
I chose to believe the lies when I knew better. I saw the red flags, but chose to ignore them. Many people are out for their own good and really don’t care about yours.
They will lie when the truth would serve better!
So, back to my original question, “What ever happened to integrity? Who can you believe?”
Where is truth?–“does anybody really care?“
Nations lie and deceive and engage in trickery and have from the beginning of time. Leaders drag their nations into useless and unfounded wars.
Political leaders defame each other and speak more lies than truth, so who and what can you believe?
So what is the purpose of this writing?
To challenge you in every area of your life. To honestly look at who you are and what you believe.
In my past, I was the queen of believing the lie and being deceived. Suffering, brokenness, and heartache finally forced me to wise up and get real and honestly look at truth.
God has a “ways and means committee” to realign your life if you are willing to change. If you are content in the cesspool of deception, He will leave you there.
This is a serious invitation for life assessment and evaluation and to look honestly at your reality and what you believe.
Are you deceived and believing a lie?
