Often fractions of the media feed us with lies, lies and then more lies! And then after the lies comes their spirit of hypocrisy. Where does it ever end, or is it to remain with us until the Lord makes His second coming?
We hear so much, and we ponder and wonder if much of it is in-fact just a word of truth! We really don’t know because often we take the word of a person who perhaps in their mind believes it to be factual! As the result of our taking what has been fed to us, we end up often with a headache, bellyache, heartache and often with the spirit of suicide … in what someone else has declared as truth!
Wonder what would happen if we went back to the beginning of truth – and He who wrote it – and frame it into existence? There is but one truth and that is in fact the words that flowed from the lips of our God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All outside of that arena – are blatant lies brought to us by the deceiver – Satan!
The word of God said, Let every man be a lie – and let my word be truth! Then, who do we believe, man or God. I prefer to count up the cost before it’s too late – I choose God and His eternal life.
