"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. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. (John 8:44,45)
I am not saying that there is something special about me or that I have a unique gift that others do not have. All that I'm saying is that I cannot believe how easy it is to spot liars, and I can't, for the life of me, figure out why so many are so easily fooled.
In all of my nearly 63 years of life, I don't think lying has ever been easier to spot. It is as if all liars hiss when they speak…
What was it George Orwell said? "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act." I can't believe the average American can't see through the deceit.
Nearly everything the Left claims to believe is a lie. I have yet to figure out if they actually believe their lies or if they are simply passing on what their father tells them. Remember, the Devil doesn't just tell lies…his very nature is to lie. Satan is the originator; the father of lies. He is incapable of speaking the Truth.
And that is what his children do. They lie. They act just like their daddy.
I watched the Jezebel-like leader of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, testify before Congress last week. She is a master deceiver. Lies usually aren't bold and open, but are typically couched in the corners of an argument—hidden in the dark shadows of relativism. It is the way the Devil operates.
When he lured Eve in the garden, he subtly asked a series of questions designed to lead her away from truth. The Serpent didn't call God a liar; he merely deceived Eve into questioning what she knew to be true. "Did God really say...?" he hissed at her. "You won't surely die."
Lying is most effective when it most closely resembles the Truth. Yes, a woman does have a right to choose, as the pro-aborts love to say, but it is the question that is not asked that makes all of the difference. Of course a woman has a right to choose, but does she have the right to choose murder?
Asking the right question is the only way to get the right answer. Does a woman have the right to kill her child? Certainly not, but the enemy is subtle. He simply changes the name "baby" to "fetus." Negroes weren't considered people when folks wanted to own them. Jews weren't considered people when the Nazi's wanted to burn them. Babies aren't considered people when people want to abort them.
Choice is an open-ended statement. Choice, by its very definition, implies alternative options. Abortion is not "choice." Abortion is murder.
I remember watching Bill Clinton when he uttered the famous statement, "It all depends on what the meaning of 'is' is." That was his father speaking. He is masterful at avoiding truth by parsing words. He was the poster-child of a generation of children trained in moral-relativism in America's Public Fool system.
Bill Clinton hisses a lot. He is an expert at hissing. His wife is, as well, but her hissing seems easier to discern.
Obama is a hisser…an expert hisser. Hissing is hypnotic. It often soothes the troubled soul by justifying a deeply held aversion to sin. The Bible calls it 'the conscience.' An expert hisser silences the still small voice inside each of our hearts.
If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. It's simply a blob of tissue. How does my marriage affect your marriage? What difference, at this point, does it make? If it feels good do it. Abortion is healthcare. War on women. Common core. Vaccinations are safe. Planned Parenthood performs mammograms. Graphic abortion images do not work. Islam is a religion of peace. The Pope is infallible. Jews are the most persecuted people on the earth. I was born gay. Bruce Jenner is a woman. Obama is a Christian. We can tax ourselves into prosperity. We can borrow our way out of debt. Christians should not judge. The Supreme Court makes laws. Hillary is honest. Fox News is fair and balanced. Homosexuality is normal and natural. You can't legislate morality. If only we could get a Republican president. The economy is booming. Unemployment is down. The Rapture is about to sweep us out of here. Paper money is better than precious metals. Christians and Muslims serve the same God. Guns are responsible for the violence in America. Male on male anal sex is safer than smoking. Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry are good Catholics. People hate Obama only because he's black. Democrats are looking out for the black man. The economy has turned the corner. Your pension is safe. Black lives matter…OJ Simpson is innocent…
The closer you get to THE TRUTH, the more you will recognize the lies.
Read your Bible. Seek Jesus. The Holy Spirit will guide you to all Truth.
We live in a time where deception has never been more prevalent. Turn off the TV. Stop listening to the lies. Clear your head. If you listen closely, you can hear the hiss…Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
