The truth is, they are susceptible to every wind of doctrine and the cunning craftiness, deceitful plotting and trickery of men (Ephesians 4:14). Most have no idea what the Bible really calls evil nor what the Bible actually says is good.
In this short YouTube video click here, I share what God's word says about lying. It is evil. Clearly! Well, at least it is clear in the Bible. But if you look at how rampant it is in American society today then you discover how deviated our moral compass is. Did you know that God's word says in 1 John 3:8 that for this purpose was the Son of God manifested, to destroy the works of the evil one? How you destroy the works of the evil one? Obviously with truth.
There are consequences for speaking the truth. Jesus reveals the price in John 7:7 where He says the world hated Him because He testified of their evil works. At the same time In John 8:32 He reveals that truth sets people free. In other words, there is great reward too.
Our time on earth is short, eternity is forever. There are eternal consequences for our choices/decisions/judgments today. I choose to live with a view towards eternity. That is wisdom. How about you?
