I remember an Elvis Presley movie that I saw when I was young where he went to see a businessman and told the secretary that he was there to see the businessman with the truth. When the businessman, curious no doubt, accepted to see Elvis, Elvis told him that the truth was: he needed a job. That frank and honest approach welled in me the desire to always learn and say the truth. Dear friend: Is the truth important to you?
This world is full of liars and lies. Today I was reading the news and there was a story aboutLance Armstrong who may turn out to be one huge liar and cheater. What the truth is; will eventually come out. In time, the truth always comes out, it cannot be hidden!
Where I live there is so much corruption in government and business (especially the construction business) that it if it wasn’t serious and true, it would be a big joke. It is no laughing matter! Corruption, lying, cheating is no joke: it is our everyday reality, in all facets of life.
Look at what Adolph Hitler and Joseph Goebbels did with their lies. Their lies killed some 50,000,000 people! Somewhere from what they said and did comes the expression ‘if you tell a lie long enough people will believe it.’
There exists, yes exists, an even bigger liar. His name, which is not a name at all’ but a description of his criminal activities, is Satan the Devil.
Jesus Christ, Satan’s older and wiser brother, said of
Yes, the Devil hates the truth and is the originator of lying. He is the first liar and the universe’s biggest liar. It is good to keep in mind, whom we are following and pleasing when we lie and no there is no such thing as a white lie. Lies have no color. A lie is a lie, as it is not the truth!
What about us? Is the truth important to us? Will we take the time to search for the truth?
There have been many lies told about God! The world has even tried to efface his name from the Bible and deny that He exists. Yet, notice what Exodus 3:15 (ASV) says: “...Jehovah...this is my name forever....” and Psalm 83:18 (KJV) “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.”
Who do you think would be the mastermind behind such a scheme to efface God’s name from the universe? The scheme of schemes! The epitome of lies!
Will it work? Will you speak up? Is the truth important to you? Do you care?
