What has happened to my America?
It seems my country is in love with lying.
Telling the truth has become hard for so many Americans, even so called Christians.
When I was growing up in the 50’s and 60’s it was just instilled into you not to ever lie.
You knew lying was dead wrong, even non-church goers knew that.
We knew as kids if we lied, we would get are butt whipped.
Now in America we have adults who make a living by lying…….lying is an epidemic in America.
In fact it is one of the main reasons America is falling.
Just tell the truth!
This is the kind of thing that does not make me popular, but I am not here to be popular. I am here to share what God tells me to. Since forming FGGAM our property has been vandalized more than once with graffiti on our garage doors, house broken into, identity theft……being yelled at from people that walk by our house! Buffy has four bb’s in her from someone shooting her!!!! We were shocked when Dr. Martin showed us the x-rays, during a cancer check-up. I have had to call the Police more times in the last 2 years than anytime in my life. And we live in a nice neighborhood! LOL! I do not say or write popular things. But God has given us work to do. telling the truth in America now-a-day is not popular. Many don’t care to hear the truth.
How can we raise up children in this country and expect things to be better when they cannot trust adults?
Half truths are lies, people try to cover up the mud.
Our society is being built on lies and not the truth.
In the Buffalo Gap Round-Up newspaper of Buffalo Gap, Texas, Sel Graham wrote this and I added some comments. Sel Graham is from Austin Texas, West Point graduate. He believes that honesty is a top issue as we do here at FGGAM.
A lie is a false statement which is intended to deceive.
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, is the father of effective lying. He observed, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,
people will believe it.” Politicians (I might add here it’s just not Politicians, lies are in the Body of Christ, we all must be accountable) have used
Goebbels’ principle successfully. No matter how much a lie is shown to be false, some people will believe it is true.
To quote the first two-thirds of that famous saying by Abraham Lincoln, “You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of
the time.” That seems good enough for government political work.
Sadly, politicians can win by lying. Too often, the penalty for a politician lying to the public is being elected. (I once again say, this shoe fits many in
NEWS FLASH: President Obama has lied to the American people. The list is to long for here. See Jack Cashill’s book, YOU LIE.
Benjamin Franklin warned, “Half a truth is often a great lie.” Half a truth can be extremely specious. Example: It is reported by usually reliable
sources that President Obama did not lie to the public on August 12, 20014. This may be half a truth which Franklin warned about.
There are rumors that President Obama is capable of telling the truth. However, those rumors may be lies.
Many people actually believe that Americans are enjoying the extra money from the healthcare savings promised by Obamacare. Many believe
that California video producer Nakoula Nakoula caused the attack on Benghazi. Many believe that Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl is a national
hero because he was traded for five high-ranking terrorists. Many believe that Obama’s top adviser,
Iranian-born Muslim sympathizer Vallerie Jarret is fair and balanced in her advice to the President.
Many believe that ther war against ISIS, with no U.S. boots on the ground, can be successful. Some may ecven beleive our President joined the
Frequent Fliers Club of Air Force One in order to save taxpayers a lot of money. Surely everyone knows that the word “smidgen,” used by the
President in the IRS scandal, means overwhelming amount of doublespeak.
Aesop, in his famous Fable about the shepherd boy who cried “wolf,” warned, “you cannot believe a liar even when he tells the truth.” So don’t lie or spread lies. (DO NOT GOSSIP CHURCH!)
Too many American simply don’t give a hoot about the truth.
God Save America by seeking Your truth and by not tolerating lies.
We cannot be the America we were as long as we are on a track of lies.

PS: I wonder how many American know who Hitler was? Lincoln? Have you seen a history text book in our Public schools lately?
What does God’s Word say about lying?
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.
No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.
Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
PS…My daddy, Wally Moede, WW II Vet, Sgt. U.S. Marines, Fireman, Transportation Director for years in Windom, Minnesota, most of all was a man of God, Godly husband and Father. Daddy said this, “Always tell the truth son, even if it hurts!”
America has become soft, it is afraid to tell the truth, afraid of hurting feelings, of not being liked, or afraid of not getting elected or re-elected, or afraid of losing Church members and donors.
Here at FGGAM we will always tell the truth, even if it hurts!
PS: here is a reply to this post that was on my Facebook: Stephen Bockemeier Great article Pastor Dewey. If we are not seeking to know the truth, then we will never find the truth, and we will never hear the voice of the One who is the Truth. Jesus told Pilate and his accusers:
“For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (John 18:37 NKJV)
Our society has been so deceived by lies because we have not been seeking to know the truth and have not been seeking the source of all truth. Our ears have been hardened against receiving the truth by the schemes of the devil.
Oh Holy Spirit, open our ears to hear what the Lord is speaking to us in these days – and lead us back to the source of all truth – your Word is truth!
