Looking For Truth…
““My people bend their tongues like bows to shoot out lies. They refuse to stand up for the truth. They only go from bad to worse. They do not know me,” says the LORD.”(Jeremiah 9:3 NLT-SE)
I was doing my usual doom scrolling through Twitter when news of the Gaza hospital bombing broke.
I knew that this would be a hot topic online and off, so I wanted to know the facts about what really happened.
I was looking for the truth.
I’m still looking, though I took a break to sleep, feed Liam, and eat a Hot Pocket.
People I respect have had to delete things they wrote online because information changes by the second.
There were old videos posted “proving” one side, then newer videos posted “proving” the other.
Both sides used technology to “prove” the guilt of the other.
After the dust settled, we still can’t be sure of anything except some people died.
I checked my email to see if there were more in depth reports available…instead, there were the latest movements of a bull’s bowels from the ‘Elijah List” and todays anti-vaxx article from the ‘Epoch Times”…they run one everyday.
They run it because that’s what their readers want to hear…just as my brethren love the sound of excrement pouring from the “prophets” mouths.
We only want to hear what we already believe.
Greg Laurie had a lot to say, most of which is what Greg Laurie usually has to say when he’s not looking for another crisis to say those things about or a minor celebrity to pal around with.
He’s blissfully unaware that nobody cares if he knows Alice Cooper…
The stories about the perv who was the star of “The Sound of Freedom” are seen as having proceeded straight from the Satan himself, because once a hero of the Christian right, always a hero of the Christian right…even if you groped a woman or two heroically for Jesus…
They can’t be true, because…liberals…
Over on Facebook, our friend Kevin pleads with people to speak the truth in love…and I can hear people spitting at him in the spirit.
“Have I now become your enemy because I am telling you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16 NLT-SE)
I’ve never cared if the truth made me uncomfortable or showed that I was wrong about something…if it was the truth, the promise was that it would set me free .
Rarely has a people been in such bondage …bondage that they have chosen.
This isn’t going to work out well for us…our chosen lies will eventually put us in real bondage.
I’m going to take a nap now…and that’s the truth…
