Culture of Lies (July 2, 2014)

It’s not hard to conclude that ours is now a culture of lies. Last week an incumbent Republican senator openly courted those who would have to break the law to vote for him, Tennessee was ranked the 3rd most corrupt state in the nation, and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals held that gay marriage was a fundamental right without having the integrity to actually say what marriage is. 

People have always lied, but when lies become the mark of the culture, it is quite another thing. Describing Judah’s culture before its fall, the prophet Jeremiah said:

“They have taught their tongue to speak lies; Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit (Jeremiah 9:3-6 NKJV).”

Let’s pray we repent before we, too, fall under the judgment of God.
