BATTLE FOR THE TRUTH.

What might I ask is the main problem that we are faced with today?

Is it affluence? Homosexuality? Left-wing politics? Government? A weak church? Dictators? Selfishness? Love of money? Ignorance? 

All these are problems but they are not the main problem. They are a product of the main problem. 

From what I have seen, heard and studied the main problem is the battle for the truth. In other words, lies being masqueraded as the truth and following on from that people believing that the lies are the truth. 

Basically, society as a whole is being deceived into believing that lies are the truth and as a result, it is causing havoc and people are being destroyed as a result.

Should we be surprised at this?

No, because Jesus warned us about this a long time ago. Consider these scriptures......

Matthew 25:4 See to it that no one deceives you. The only reason someone tells a lie is to deceive you. The rest of the chapter tells us these things must happen before the end.

In 1 Timothy 4:1 it says that the church will be deceived. it says in later times some will fall away from the faith because they paid attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons. 

2 Thessalonians 2:9 talks about one coming in the activity of Satan with all power and signs and false wonders.

And in verse 10 and 11 it says that people will perish because they did not receive the love of the truth so God sends them a deluding influence so they would believe that which is false. 

Verse 12 says (that as a result), those that refused the truth took pleasure in wickedness.

The question is, why do people become captive to lies? One reason and one reason only. Because they are giving in to the deceitfulness and wickedness of their hearts, an expression of our fallen nature. 

Get rid of the truth and the fallen nature kicks in. And the more lies we believe the more our fallen nature takes over.

Consider the following. Homosexuality was in most cases considered unlawful and to be shunned. Now it is celebrated. Now governments are making law that protects homosexuality and homosexuals. 

There was a time when marriage was a serious commitment entered into for life by a man and woman. Now, marriage can be whatever you want it to be. Two men or two women. You don't need to be married to conceive and raise children. Two men can legally have and raise children through artificial means and they are applauded. One man can donate sperm 20 times and father 20 children in 20 different families.

Divorce used to be for life. Now it is easy come and easy go even if they do get married which most do not.

Sex in the main was for husband and wife in the context of marriage. Now it is whatever you can get whenever you can get and if you can't then you force yourself on someone to get it. Whilst there are laws against such things, it doesn't stop people forcing themselves on others. 

In the old days, children obeyed their parents. Today it is up yours, I will do what I want. 

In the old days, it was a case of 'be home by 7' and we were. Today, parents do not know where their children are or what they are doing hence the rise in teenage crime.

In America, 60% of black children are raised without a father. The fact is, children of any race or colour, especially boys, need a father to guide them so no wonder we have so much teenage crime. 

In the old days, mother stayed at home to care for the children. She produced a place of security and warmth for the children to grow up in. 

Today children are a thorn in the flesh and must be passed on to child care centres so the parents can pursue a career. What is important is the pursuit of things so that people can see how successful we are. We have to keep working so that we can have a new car every three years. (Mine is 20 years old). 

As Satan is the father of lies he has convinced society that all these things are important so that we can all pursue our destiny and not be restricted by outdated ideas which make society work. Yes, it had its flaws because humans are fallen people, but it was not abandoned wholesale because of the latest fad.

Today we have abandoned all that is right and true because we have stupidly chosen to believe lies emanating from Satan and those who have chosen not to believe his lies are considered to be intolerant, bigoted and hateful.

The church, which should be a beacon of light in the darkness have been carefully extinguishing their light and joined in the promotion of the lies of Satan. They have embraced the homosexual agenda under the guise of inclusiveness and diversity.

Just on that point when you see those words complete the sentence which is inclusiveness and diversity which doesn't include you if you do not agree with us. 

Generally speaking, those that do demand tolerance and inclusiveness are the most intolerant and exclusive people on earth. 

So where do we go from here?

My plan is "the truth or death." When I face my maker I want to hear "Well done good and faithful servant" not "why did you swallow the lies of deception that Satan has sprung on society?"
