I’m tired of being lied to.
The trouble these days is that the lies continue to be told until they are believed.
Believing something doesn’t make it true.
Just because someone is an authority, or has authority, doesn’t mean he, or she, can be expected to tell the truth.
Well, we can expect it, and we can accept it.
But, that doesn’t make it true.
When you are planning your life based on the advice and counsel of “authorities “, and you discover that the things the authorities have been
been telling you are not true, or based on anything other than an expectation of a hidden outcome, do you continue to listen to them?
If more and more sources are telling you the same thing, even after you discover that the original premise is false, when do you begin to question the veracity of what you are hearing?
How do you fight the onslaught of the untrue?
With logic, reason, sarcasm, wit?
There has got to be a standard for truth: A plumb line to determine straight from crooked.
To fight the lie, just speak the truth.
Maybe, if you tell the truth over and over and over, someone will change from believing the lie to believing the truth.
‘How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord ’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. ‘
