Men Hunger For Their Own Flavor of Lies

cone - flavor

During a recent conversation which touched on the the topic of believing lies, several worthwhile points were made by all involved in the discussion.

1- Regardless of what they may claim, men would rather be told lies than the truth.

It has ever been so.

“That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”
–Isaiah 30:9-10

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
–Jeremiah 5:31

2- AT least one person agreed with the statement, “People enjoy being lied to.”

“I used to think that people wanted the truth, but now I know they would rather hear lies. Lies are almost always more comfortable.”

Choosing to believe the truth FORCES a person to make choices.  Most would rather not go down that road and would MUCH rather continue on in the manner to which they have become accustomed.

3- Most people believe the lies told by KNOWN liars–particularly when those liars labor for the media.

“I believe that!”

4- Most of those in the discussion agreed that everyone wants to hear a particular FLAVOR of lie.

Which is why some people wholeheartedly believe the financial media.

Which is why others believe one cable news channel or another.

Which is why still others choose gossip rags and tabloids as their favorite flavor.

AND which is why some folks place their trust in TV preachers.

5- Most of those in the discussion also agreed that those folks–even though they may swallow any number of lies which they favor–DO not believe FLAVORS other than their own.

Which is why the person who is convinced that CNN and NPR always tell the truth can recognize the stories told by Fox News.

Which is why those who are loyal followers of Fox News easy recognize the deceptions of non-Fox flavors.

6- A great many folks will claim that they really want the TRUTH!

BUT, almost all of these folks will settle for lies.

One reasons being that MEN ARE LIARS.

“God is not a man, that he should lie”
–Numbers 23:19

When a person is swallowing fairy tales, he would rather those tales be seasoned with his particular flavor of lie.

DOES the reader believe he wants the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

HAS the reader thought the question through?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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.”
-–Romans 1:16
