The more things change, the more they stay the same.
A horrible and shocking thing
has happened in the land:
the prophets prophesy lies,
the priests rule by their own authority,
and my people love it this way.
But what will you do in the end?
How many thousands of years ago were those words spoken and written?
Are things any different today?
Some Christian teachers broadcast blatant lies and somehow they are still able to gather followers who love what they are giving.
As Paul warned the Thessalonians, “Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”
Often that’s not so hard to do, and yet the unwary allow themselves to be deceived.
At the heart of this matter is our personal desire for the truth. If we genuinely love and desire the truth, we won’t fall for lies so easily.
