In the bible, one of the ten commandments reads “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor” (Exodus chapter 20 verse 16) which, written in a more modern way might read “do not lie”.
These commandments are so well known that even those that are not religious or believe in God knows this to be true. We claim to be a society that abhors liars. We teach our children not to lie and that lying is bad yet we lie to our children and ourselves every day. And for the most part, we tell ourselves that if I lie, it is only to protect myself or that it is just a little white lie that can’t hurt anybody. Heck, if you think about it, honestly, you probably lie many times a day. Sometimes we know that what we say is a lie and that others that hear it also know it is a lie but we still say it because it might be funny. Like “there are no calories in a stolen cookie” or “if I break the cookie, the calories fall out” and these might be considered innocuous lies because they hurt no one and everyone knows we are just being funny. Really? LIE
Since the discovery of ‘Covid-19 in late 2019, we have heard many lies, the one that unnerves me (there are so many now) is the lie that our kids can become super heros by simply washing there hands. Go onto YouTube and type in the search bar “wash your hands and become a super hero’ and it will populate with many videos or radio commercials that proport this very lie. Even Lego Batman says children can be a ‘Super hero’ by washing their hands. LIE
Now everyone knows that judging a person by their skin color or shape or any other physical characteristic is, for the most part, wrong. While Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a very flawed man, God chose him to point out that just because a person has darker skin, we should not make judgements of their character. God made mankind in his own image and we are all valued by God so much that another commandment reads “Thou shalt not murder”. We, as a civilized society claim that we value life by making it a crime to murder. Even those that don’t believe in God see the value in this law. So, why is it that we so willingly lie to ourselves and others about prejudice? There are radio commercials now that claim that prejudice is a virus. ( again, a simple YouTube search will give many examples) LIE
How about the violent riots over the last few years by the group “Black Lives Matter Inc”. This group does not even hide the fact that they are Marxists and aim to destroy the current America. Now, the term “black lives matter” is true, just as all lives matter. After all, we are all made in the image of God. (And by the way, I worship a Jewish carpenter that was far from having white skin). So when someone that does not know the core values of “Black Lives Matter Inc” sees a sign the simply reads Black Lives Matter, they would agree. Of course black lives matter because ALL LIVES MATTER. But we see many people absent mindedly supporting the BLM, Inc because they are made to feel inferior because they have anything other than black skin. BLM LIE
More than 2 genders? Really? I learned long before kindergarten that there were two genders. You either have external plumbing or internal plumbing. Boy and girl. (and like the song says viva la difference) Adam and Eve begat … boy and girl get together and make other boys and girls. Now personally, I couldn’t give a pile of steaming road apples if you wanted to call yourself a redwood or you self identified as a garden slug, there are only two genders and to teach our kids anything else is a major disservice to our children. Our kids are already confused once they hit puberty and to add confusion by telling them that they can be any of the myriad of other made up genders is just wrong. We now have 5 year old boys, who claim to be girls and with the support of their teachers, not necessarily their parents, have the right to go thru gender reassignment surgery. Talk about adding major confusion to an already confused child. And once this 5 year old boy goes thru surgery, once puberty hits, he will even be more confused. More than 2 genders LIE.
If a boy is school can’t sit still, he is obviously in need of drugs to keep him still and attentive. This is, (sorry mom) BULLSHIT! Children need activity, that is what is called recess. Let the kids burn off that natural energy. To pump our kids full of pharmaceutical drugs like Ritalin, is to tell them that drugs are ok. After all, your parents and teacher endorses this drug to quell the natural energy of these kids all to make the teacher feel better because she or he might not be able to handle the natural energy of these kids. These teachers have an unnatural sense of self importance. This is not to say that some people need Ritalin, but not to the degree that it is prescribed. ADHD to the degree that it is diagnosed, LIE
You have a right to healthcare. One of the biggest lies perpetrated on America. You have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Your rights there do not intrude on the rights of others. My right to life does not interfere with your right to life. However, healthcare is a service, performed by many specialists that have taken the time and spent the money to learn a specialty service. To demand that someone pay for your so called right infringes on other peoples rights. Someone has to pay for the service, namely the government, namely you and I having to pay for someone else’s service. Like I believe, life is not fair nor unfair. Life is. Someone might be born with a disease. Maybe they are born prematurely and have problems with their lungs or be born with a blood disease. This is tragic, but that does not mean that they have a right to someone else’s money. Would you say you have the right to a plumber?, Electrician?, Car mechanic? No you do not. You do not have the right to someone else’s labors. That is theft (the basis of socialism). And once the government takes control of this service, they can and have determined who deserves said healthcare. A fat man might not be able to qualify for healthcare until he looses some weight. Think this is absurd? They do it in Japan right now. Healthcare a right, LIE
These are but a small sample of the everyday lies that we live with. When did it become normal to believe lies? When did it become fashionable to tell our children that they must be honest, yet we force them and ourselves to live a life of lies? I said it before and I say it again now, WE ARE ALL LIARS. What lie do you willingly live with?
