WHO ARE YOU GONNA BELIEVE?

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.

Maybe.

‘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. ‘

Psalms 1:1-2 https://my.bible.com/bible/72/PSA.1.1-2

  1. One lie that is firmly entrenched in our society is the belief that the earth and everything in it is the result of millions of years of evolution. Even many Christians believe it and interpret the Bible is such a way as to conform to it. I once believe this lie and only recently have I come to understand that there really isn’t any scientific evidence to support it.

    • You are right about that, Clyde. When I was teaching math I came up with a formula to see if the current population was possible with a shorter timeline of 6000 years or less. Easily possible. The greatest problem the world has is believing God. “They choose to believe a lie.”

    • Isn’t that the way it is? You cannot convince those who have set their perameters and can’t stand the idea of them crashing down around them.
      Providentially, our perameters can not fall.
