Traveling through a desert a man saw a woman standing all alone with eyes bent to the ground.
“Who are you?” he asked.
“I am truth,” she answered.
“And why have you left to life in the desert?”
“Because things have changed,” she answered. “In days gone by, lying was confined to a few. But now days, whenever you converse with people, you find that that they are liars.”
Human life is vile and a wretched thing, when falsehood is honored above truth. (source:Penguin Classics-Fables of Aesop-“A City of Lies”)
But this truth, is everlasting. “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good,” Proverbs 15:3. And, “Whoso rewards evil for good shall not depart from his house,” Proverbs 17:13. Meaning that ultimately such behaviors will sendÂ individuals and the pursuits of the nation to the fires of the garbage furnace. Making certain that falsehoods are a sure path for destruction for individuals and the nation. It’s impossible for the goodness of God to dwell in the midst of such wretchedness. Therefore; depriving a people, and their nation the extended hand of God in the arena of prosperity.
America is becoming a nation of falsehoods and with that being the case her avenues of prosperity are vanishing. That at least isn’t new, as many can attest to dwindling personal prosperity. Caused in part because the government is constantly raising the national ceiling of debt. Which now exceeds $18 trillion dollars, and more than $51,000 dollars of debt for every American man, woman and child. And increasing on average, everyday by more than $3.99 billion. Under Obama the debt increases about $48,000 per second. Or $4,233,081,600 per day. That equaling more than $4 billion every day. (sources web searches). Signaling an ineptness to basic economics that prosperity can’t come from what one does not own. Thomas Jefferson put it this way, “The principle of spending money by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling the futurity on a large scale.”
Here is what is at the core of individual and national falsehoods. It’s the abandonment of our national dependence upon our Judeo-Christian heritage. That adamantly insisted that marriage is a union between a man and woman. Which mysteriously, as a miracle, bonded the two as one, according to Genesis 2:24. Understanding that is the foundation for saying no to same sex marriages because allowing such occurrences is an abomination to God. Again anchored in our sacred scriptures, and worthy of death, Leviticus 20:13. And like the national debt, sanctioning such abominations is like spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of equal rights is but swindling futurity on a large scale. Moses put it this way, “Their blood shall be upon them.” Inflicting God’s wrath even to unborn generations yet to come. Defying God is the ultimate of falsehoods anchored in lies. Followed centuries later by Paul, who endorsed the Leviticus law in Romans 1:24-32. With the great author of such divine laws being none other than, *The Word of God,* who clothed His body as a vesture dipped in blood. (cp Revelation 19:13. And said, I am God! (cp John 10:30).
But hope is abundant because it is a scriptural declaration that when falsehoods are abandoned for truth this is the result. And he (individuals/nations) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruit in its season, Its leaf shall not whiter; and whatsoever is done shall prosper,” Psalms 1:3.
It’s impossible to separate a people from their nation because the people are the nation. Which is also true for the church because the people are the church. And the church of all institutions needs to reject a galaxy of falsehoods, for biblical truths. If we as individuals, and as a nation are to enjoy the leaf of prosperity that does not whither. That once again sees the miraculous wheel of God turning out goods and services to the peoples delight and the nations glory. That is the only way for getting out of these troubled economic times which really has its roots in the falsehood of lies. Deliverance is called, *America the Beautiful,* and brings with it this experience, “The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall not want,” Psalms 23:1.
There is yet another falsehood tearing the nation apart. It’s the militaristic/political falsehood of Islam camouflaged as a religion. Their efforts to build a mosques across America must be stopped. Spreading like bush fires across the nation denying and closing mosques as the fires of Jesus consumes yet another evil, as America continues her journey to prosperity. Which may allow the lady in the desert to return to the city she loves. That grand, but little known American truth described as such, *You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidden,* Matthew 5:14. Our American, Judeo-Christian foundation with its rich heritage is that light on a hill. Can the lady of truth make it home? She can, if we are willing to be militant enough to start enough bush fires. Learn to become violent, non-violently by learning a cabinet full of the surreal arts as revealed through our scriptures. Making the discoverers the owners of the contents of this discussion. Women are the ideal candidates for such experiences. Because unlike men, they already know that it’s not brawn that works. But rather heart and brains making it possible for the ladies of the desert to return to the city.
