Lying is found everywhere from your child’s lips to the average drunk driver that has always only had ‘a couple beers’. Politics is no different, for it has been a useful political tool since the beginning, yet God hates outright deceit in an effort to deny justice, oppress the widow and orphan, etc. Furthermore, it’s not that any particular politician couldn’t pass his preferred legislation and that be construed as a lie; rather it’s when he lies about saying he could do something when he knew he couldn’t and laughed about it. All of that to win an election thereby lining his pockets and securing his power.

Needless to say, there’s plenty of lying to go around. What’s so concerning today is how bold the lies have become. There is no fear of God before men, and the haters of God on the left have grown in their boldness, while those on the institutional right sit quietly and barely raise an eyebrow themselves.

WND reports, “The pattern has become obvious in that those on the far left in American politics feel they have a license to lie, almost casually and without conscience, following a model that was introduced by the Soviets in the 1920s, so much so that it has become normative for the Democratic Party and their allies in the media,” Cashill said. “In response, we acquiesce in that our allies on the institutional political right under-cut us when we try to expose the truth by calling us ‘conspiracy theorists.’”

This, Cashill stressed, supported his basic theme for the evening: “How to become a genuine, all-American ‘conspiracy theorist,’ because in the eyes of the mainstream media, if we dare to tell the truth, we are going to be cast as ‘conspiracy theorists’ by the left in the effort to preserve the lie by discrediting us as truth-tellers.”

What does the Lord say to such wickedness?

“16 There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil,
19 a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. ”

Proverbs 6:16-19 (ESV)

In a world filled with so much evil, we must seize the day and realize that when we let our light shine before men, we penetrate the darkness with great veracity. Just because the political class is filled with so much corruption doesn’t mean we should plummet into despair. Simply living the Christian life of integrity day in and day out pierces the wickedness of this world and calls His sheep out of the darkness into His wonderful light.

As we reign with Christ today, we have far more power than we are led to believe or even realize at times, for a single Christian armed with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ can wield the sword, which is the Word of God, on a daily basis and gain great victory in the heavenly realm, which is where the hardest fought war persists. The Kingdom of God grows day by day as He is filling His ranks with warriors for truth who will dwell with Him into the ages. What a great glory that is and what a great joy it is to be part of such Kingdom building! Amen!
