“For without [are] dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Revelation 22:15 KJV
THE PATHOLOGY OF THE LIE
Pathological lying has been defined as "falsification entirely disproportionate to any discernible end in view, may be extensive and very complicated, and may manifest over a period of years or even a lifetime.”
We are finding that it can accelerate throughout the tenure of an administration, and carry over from one administration to another and increase drastically in intensity.
It is often stated that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. That is in fact a misstatement. The road to hell is paved with lies. That being the case we find that, in view of the lies of the leadership and inhabitants of this nation in government, and on all levels of our society, this commonwealth and its denizens are well down the paved road that leads to the smoky infernal regions.
This nation encompasses a now colossal collection of liars; it has become infamous for its lies and tellers of lies. The Obama administration is quite correctly recognized as a great source of all things false.
PARROT LIARS - OR THE DOUBLING OF LIES
We have in this nation a hierarchy of fabricators; we have in fact developed an institution of prevaricators of immense renown. The Benghazi, IRS, and NSA scandals were all predicated upon lies, i.e. untruths and falsehoods, if one wants to sugarcoat bold-faced lies one could use those euphemisms.
We have witnessed a lying administration commit criminal acts, and cover up the condemnable acts by employing the lie, not one lie, but in every instance a rolling bevy of lies upon lies. When caught red handed in a lie, rather that show some integrity and reveal the truth of the matter, a series of successive lies are conjured to cover the original lie. Subordinates are called upon to witness to the denials and cover-ups and these, bureaucrats, administrative appointees, and presidential pals compound the wrongs by conjuring some of the most egregiously stupid fabrications imaginable.
And so it goes, the media – which is completely in the bag to Barack Obama – then continues the chain of prevarications by deviating from and perverting the truth. The ignorant in society that have seemingly no ability to formulate their own thoughts and no semblance of integrity or wholeness pick up on the lies and repeat them in every imaginable social situation as gospel. There you have it honored reader…it is a nation of liars.
IDENTIFIED IN SCRIPTURE
I have found that quite often Old Testament prophesies serve a twofold purpose. They were used to predict the future and fate of ancient societies and it has become very discernible that they have another function, and that is to identify the moral soundness and worthiness, future, and destiny of present day cultures; In other words the end of time commonwealths.
An example of this follows. Read the following prophesy from the Book of Isaiah thoroughly and consider the text in regard to the present condition of society in the United States.
“For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, everyone by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable. When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand: In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people. For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not.
Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.
O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord GOD of hosts. Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, The rings, and nose jewels, The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the veils. And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.” Isaiah 3: 1-26 KJV
Now, dear reader, go back and re-read this prophetic scriptural pronouncement once again. Notice any similarities to the present condition of our culture? It’s pretty difficult to miss. It fits like a glove.
Think about it, in this nation the men have become increasingly feminized…Mr. Moms stripped of their masculine attributes. The president epitomizes this feminization. Watch him mince up and down the steps to a stage or to his plane, limp-wristed and swishingly petite. The women have shunned the home and have become the bread winners, ensconced in the combat positions of the military and increasingly occupying traditional male positions even in the construction industry. The youth, nearly collectively, are completely out of control, regarding no authority, devoid of respect, and increasingly mean and heartless. They are without any regard for propriety in manners and conduct.
There are those who read my material and hate the references to Biblical text, I will hear from some of these, but tough luck, the shoe fits perfectly.
We know that the ancient society of Israel paid little attention to Isaiah’s words. The people of this nation would be foolish beyond words to assume a similar attitude.

NOT TOO LATE - YET
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not tell the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” John 8:12-30
It is not too late, but it is nearly so.
I have been, I realize, harsh on our political leaders and those who have by their ignorance put the entire nation into jeopardy, I am mindful of the following quote in this regard…so be it. “To learn who rules over you simply find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.” --Voltaire
