“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”
–2 Timothy 4:3-4
TRUTH IS RARE IN A WORLD OF LIES
Was recently reminded of the following comment on a media article, ‘Everything We have been Taught about our Origins is a Lie.’ The comment was a response to a previous comment recommending the Bible as a source of truth.
“Wow, how do you manage to shove religion into this? Fictional books hold no answers.”
“What a truly deceived, totally indoctrinated person. He just finished an article detailing reasons why what he has been taught is a lie, yet he refuses to even consider any other sources as valid EXCEPT those who already have admitted lying to him.”
—End Times Prophecy Headlines: January 26, 2015
Hard to single out the commenter: he’s the end times rule, not the exception. People who have been fed a steady diet of lies have no appreciation of, appetite for or method of discerning the truth.
To a people who have been indoctrinated that ALL opinions and ALL viewpoints are equally valid, what does it matter if one speaks the truth or not?
In the end times, the whole world is deceived.
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;”
Little wonder men in the end times are deceived. They are constantly bombarded with lies: from the media, from their sports, in their churches, in their entertainment, books, advertising, politics, science; even their personal relationships.
Most have their heads hooked up to a non-stop, 24/7 sewer pipe of deceit.
Men do not want to know the truth. Having been offered the truth of God’s Word, men prefer the lies of the world.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
Not only do men not want the truth, they will hate anyone who attempts to tell them the truth.
Truth is hate to those who hate the truth.
Therefore, because they don’t really care if a thing is true or not; because they do not have the love of the truth; because they are used to believing lies, God will send them ‘strong delusion’ to ensure they will continue believing the lies that condemn them.
“and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
–2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
Falsehoods surround modern man. Every single bit of what he believes is tainted with lies. The only source of truth is the Bible, but men have been indoctrinated to automatically reject the truth.
A few will question their indoctrination and pursue the truth.
Most will not.
Concerning the truth, many are timid. Truth creates discomfort among those who live in deception.
So many aspects of life in the modern world simply ‘do not add up.’ Most do not look too deeply into these issues, preferring to be lied to as they “live their life.”
And so, they will be.
Any number of secular articles and websites urge readers to “Wake up!”
Without a source of truth, there will be no awakening.
Anyone who argues otherwise is immersed in one more lie.
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
Truth or lies?
The time for making a choice is growing short.
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
