Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.Revelation 22:15 NIV
Well-known to our family, as I was growing up, was a man of whom it was said, “He’d lie, even if the truth made a better story.” When one lie unraveled, there was no embarrassment or retreat; it was just time to move on to the next whopper.
Leading the charge against the President of the United States, are some of the most accomplished and practiced tale-bearers imaginable. Their serious accusations have been around for three years: “Donald Trump is a liar and a traitor.” The evidence suggests, however, that most of the lying and treachery is coming from their side.
Do not dismiss this article as a Pro-Trump piece, for I am not pro-this man or anti-that man. I am Pro-Truth and Anti-Falsehood. This post is not a testimony to our current president’s character, but when comparing him to his accusers, President Trump looks almost saintly.
Last week, this country received the long-awaited report on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. Those who greeted the U.S. Attorney General’s Summary as some kind of cover-up, are signaling this matter is far from over. In their eyes, Mueller’s and the previous investigations have not gotten to the truth. At the same time, they have blocked efforts to investigate their political friends who appear to have left real evidence that they have committed real crimes.
At this point, to continue to perpetuate the made-up story that the president, members of his family, or his staff, colluded in a criminal way with the Russians, takes a lot of gall. It seems the politicians, the plotters, the media in the middle of it all, and the former unelected, politicized, intelligence and law enforcement heads, have plenty of gall to spare. They are so invested in the false narrative, they have no choice but to keep the lie growing. It is an old Russian adage that says if you want to lie, you’d better have a good memory.
They are so crafty that they are master’s of deceit. They congratulate each other for being clever. In the morning, the “Lie du Jour” is prepared then passed around to all who hunger for it. Tune in and you will hear it served all day long, and sometimes longer, but these clever, crafty and cunning schemers have a bigger problem than remembering their last fabrication. They seem to ignore that God hates lies, and those who spread them.
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.Revelation 21:8
I do not say this lightly, but if the dozens responsible for this Russian Collusion Hoax are not held accountable, then America is doomed. I am not sure we will survive this anyway. The ease with which audiences and readers swallowed one phony story after another, should send a chill down our spine. Add Russian Conspiracy to the Lie List that keeps growing longer.
A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?Jeremiah 5:30-31
For the liars to still be leaders after they have been exposed, reveals where our country is headed. We are headed to the annals of history. With a growing wave of truth-bashers waiting for their moment in the limelight, and protected by the First Amendment’s “free speech clause,” they are not simply seeing the lie as a sometime useful propaganda tool, but as a way to riches, fame and power. They embrace it as a way of life.
A false witness will not go unpunished and he who pours out lies will perish.Proverbs 19:9
