Deception & Truth.

I am so frustrated! It is really all starting to sink in that everything in this life and on this earth is totally one big deception!

Every time I watch or read the news I get so aggravated because one site will portray an event THIS way, and another site will portray an event THAT way. Well, which one is the truth then? Everything is so completely twisted. Videography and photography used to be incredibely helpful tools in proving if something is true and if it actually occurred or not. And now that technology has increased vastly, video clips are edited, and photos are "photoshopped". A fertilizer plant blew up in Texas, and somebody decides to slow down a video to show that it was actually a missile which caused the explosion. Really, now? Do we have to put a conspiracy theory to everything? What is truth?

It is so completely annoying having no idea if what I read on the news is true or not. Why do people have to lie? Why does every story have to have two sides to it (two sides which are polar opposite of one another)?

I cry out in frustration: what is truth? Is there anything in this world that is without a hidden agenda? Is there anything in this world that isn't twisting the truth all for the sake of MONEY and POWER?

And suddenly, the answer is clear in my mind. Just as I was about to lose all hope in this life, I realize that I do know what is truth, and I hold it here in my hands: The Bible.

The BIBLE is TRUTH. This world is certainly swimming in its lies, and Satan (the "Father of Lies") is doing his duty all too well, but the Bible still is and will always be God-Breathed and true.

I wish I could leave it at that, I really do, but people who call themselves Christians/Followers of God are taking something true (The Bible) and are totally twisting it into something to suit their lifestyle. Example, "New Age" Christianity is all about the idea that if God is a loving God He wouldn't send anybody to Hell, therefore Hell does not exist. Another example, somebody decided to alter The Bible and call it "The Queen James Bible" to convince Christians that homosexuality is not wrong.

Since when did it become possible to put God in a box and make Him into the God YOU want Him to be? Last I read, in THE BIBLE, God NEVER changes, He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What kind of God would totally change himself in order to fit a persons lifestyle and to help them feel justified of their sins?

Honestly, when I feel like all hope is lost, I feel great comfort in being in a relationship with a God who is the way, the truth and the life. I cannot help but sometimes hold my Bible close to me, and be so thankful to even have such an amazing, comforting, encouraging, TRUTHFUL book to guide me every second of every day.

Matthew 24:
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.
For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of birth pains.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death,and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,
11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."


  1. Thanks for the reminder... I often feel the same way. This world is filled with lies and deceit, and just pure evilness. It's so comforting to know that we have a God of truth on our side.

  2. I was just telling my friend the same thing! She sent me a link that said something about Boston being a conspiracy and it just sent me into a rage. I don't believe that it is, or maybe I don't want to. But with immediate links like that popping up left and right, who are we supposed to trust? Frustrating indeed.
