MY FRIENDS, WHAT GREY AREA IS WITHIN US?

thCharles M. Blow, (In Defense of the Truth,) a New York Times article that speaks of our Presidents states; to some his “lying may seem small, just another defect among many, but to me it is so much more. Honesty is the foundation of character. The truth is the common base from which all else is built. And yet, this man feels completely unbound by it. He has no respect or reverence for it.

For him, honesty is an option, one that he feels no compunction to choose. Before Trump’s bigotry, race-baiting, misogyny, corruption, bullying and vindictiveness, there is the lying. One could even argue that the lying is a core component of all the rest.”  friends let’s focus on the words “a core component of all the rest” as we go to God’s word in John 8:41-44 (KJV) Christ speaks to those Jews who claim God as their Father.

“For such a time as this,” Christ also speaks to you and I when He stated, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but He sent me. Why don’t you understand what I say? It’s because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his ownth character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” My friends, “as a liar, Satan was expelled from heaven and will never be allowed to regain residence there again.”

And if we allow Satan to continue to take us down that same path he traveled we have also decided, not God to expel ourselves from that place even our imagination is not capable of defining because no “eye has seen, nor ear has heard, and no human mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Cor. 2:9 (NIV)

My friends, Calvary and the plan of salvation must be a-part of every breath we take. It’s crucial we understand God’s abiding love and grace that continually seeks a commitment from us that cries out daily, not my will but thy will be done. But lying is like a cancer that destroys all the good and honest traits within us.

thTY4O6F82That is why if our President has any good or outstanding traits, they are all destroyed by what comes out of his mouth 75% of the time. So we must understand, it’s the father of dishonesty that keeps “us sinking deep in sin.” But it is also the abiding grace and love of God that went to Calvary and died for us “while we were still sinners.”

My friends, there’s no grey areas in regards to the truth, only black and white. Therefore we must “Enter the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it [because they fail to realize that honesty is the foundation of their character.] In addition, narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which will lead to complete honesty through Christ because very few understand, “thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” “is a core component of all the” commandments.] Matt 7:13-14 (NKJV) (paraphrased)
