The Truth and Nothing But the Truth

First there must be a guideline established from which we will proceed and there can be only one true guide to the truth. How many times have you heard someone say, that your truth is not necessarily the same as my truth and that there is no absolute truth?
When a nation and even the majority of the Christians turn away from God’s Word there can be no peace in the heart; they will believe the lies of the ungodly. They will believe the lies, because they have no fear of God. "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10) This is why America’s morals have fallen to the wayside, no longer is this a Christian nation, no longer is this a God fearing people and no longer is this a nation that stands for the righteous ways of our Lord.

My heart truly grieves over seeing so many people who have become greatly deceived because they do not know the truth of God’s Word….Why? Because their time is more precious to them, than what God is to them; for just a mere fifteen minutes a day one can read through the Bible in one year! They are selling their souls believing the lies of the ungodly who are always promising them an easier life with all the amenities. But I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. (John 5:42) Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; (Galatians 6:7)

In truth there can be no mistakes and above all no lies; for the one thing we can be confident of is that this guide will be its own proof and will verify its own authenticity. In all of man’s history there has never been, nor will there ever be but one guide that gives us this truth. A guide made to be available for all of the inhabitants of this world, in each separate language, so as to be able to be read, thus leading to an understanding of this truth. This is the absolute truth, which can only be found in God’s Holy Word, the Bible, the one book to have been proven over and over, guiding us to the most precious gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus.
The proof of the truth in the Bible can easily be seen in approximately 330 prophecies of the coming Messiah, the telling of His birth, life, death and resurrection. Many of these prophecies were predicted from a time frame of as little as a few months to as far as 2500 years before the birth of Jesus with 100% accuracy, yet there were very few that believed the truth of these prophecies until after His resurrection and even today despite the unerring and overwhelming evidence continue to persist in denying.
Prophecies were given to prove the truth of God’s Word. The world believed the earth was flat up until 1492 and yet approximately 750 years before the birth of Jesus, the godly Prophet Isaiah spoke, “He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,” (Isaiah 40:22). It is believed that Job lived approximately four thousand years ago and yet, while in debate with his friends He spoke, “He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.” (Job 26:7) The Bible does not back up science, science backs up the truth of the Bible!
Truthfulness is one key to pleasing God and it is essential if we are going to seek God’s will for our life.
When you block or remove God from your life your mind is open to the deception that can destroy all reasoning, understanding and desire for the truth. Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:9-10) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (Proverbs 1:7) The proof that there is very little fear of God, even in the Christian community, is easily seen with the number of divorces, homosexual issues and abortions being preformed in our communities today.

The truth in our politics can be read in “Culture of Corruption” authored by Michelle Malkin or in Mark R. Levin’s book titled, “Liberty and Tyranny” or even in Laura Ingraham’s book titled “Power to the People.” But most Americans will reject this truth, just as they have rejected the truth about abortion and homosexuality as being abominations against God’s Word. They think they are sincerely right in what they believe; but sadly they will find out that they are sincerely wrong. They are losing their souls, all the while chasing after the desires of their hearts instead of the desires that God wants for their lives. Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. (Psalm 107:17) When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2)
We know that the decline in the morals of this nation has been spurred on by pride and arrogance; in the seeking and coveting of more, and more, whether it be material possessions, money, fame or power.

The majority of the media organizations have been defiant in telling the truth in nearly every issue from economics, health care, welfare, politics and even wars. As an example, during the campaigning for the last presidency, in spite of all the progress that we Americans have made regarding the issue of race relations, the media still insisted racism is rampant, and repeatedly stated that if President Obama was defeated it would be by the racist citizens of this nation. The secular media agencies were greatly biased with their coverage, praising Obama’s party while attacking McCain’s all through the campaign season. And today if one speaks his opinion that does not coincide with the media ideas they attack with a vengeance to destroy the good character of a person, such as they tried with Sarah Palin.
The greed of most members in the Legislative Branch is on a course to exceed that of any other time before this. Members who are committing immoral sexual activities, giving false testimonies, speaking slanderously, cheating on their taxes and taking bribes showing a never ending thirst for money and power. These members showing virtually no integrity have lost almost all sense of spiritual mortal behavior. These men and women have the blood of some 50 million babies that have been murdered through abortion on their hands. Many members of this branch are a disgrace to this nation and yet knowing their character and their evil deeds they were elected into office and many re-elected over and over; therefore, whether those who voted these members into office want to agree or disagree, it will make no difference the innocent blood is on their hands also.

In January 2007 Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as Speaker of the House and she announced that this present session of the House would be the most ethical of all and under her guidance for the last two years it has become the most corrupted session ever in all of America’s history. Pelosi voted against the “Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003” and earlier attempts at similar bans. She voted in favor of the 1998 Abortion Funding Amendment, which would have allowed the use of district funds to promote abortion-related activities. She has also voted in favor of using federal funds to perform abortions in overseas military facilities, against parental notification when a minor is transported across state lines for an abortion, and in favor of providing funding for organizations working overseas that promote or perform abortions and abortion-related activities. Speaker Pelosi has sold her soul for the thirst of fame, prestige, money and power.

Over the last forty years or so, most of the men and women that are or have made up the Judicial Branch have also crossed a line, they have also sold their souls to feed the thirst for prestige and power and therefore, with their unrighteous decision on issues of Freedom of Speech, Pornography, Homosexuality, Abortion and Partial Birth Abortion, their wicked hands are not only covered in sin, but also with the innocent blood of millions of babies murdered through abortion. They are just as guilty of murder as is the abortionist and all who assist in the abortions.

President Obama said he would not allow any lobbyists in his administration and that promise was broken within his first week in office. This from a man that was to be of the highest integrity, who said that, his administration would be of the highest mortal integrity of all past administrations. President Obama destroyed all intentions of being an honest man with integrity within the very first week of his taking office and he continues to destroy many of the great works of our Founding Fathers. And with his voice and vote in the Illinois Senate against the Born Alive Bill there is no doubt that his hands are also covered with innocent blood; reflecting horribly against those who knew of this and of his views on homosexuality and yet they voted for him. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it? (Jer. 17:9 KJV)

The liberal thinks he is so wise, yet his wisdom is digging his own grave. Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are evil thoughts; ruin and destruction mark their ways. (Isaiah 59:7) For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. (Psalm 1:6) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 7:19-21)
President Obama confessed to be a Christian and then later said that he would prefer to see his grandchild murdered rather than to see his daughters punished with a baby should they make a mistake… Yes, he did not say those exact words but he said, “I wouldn’t want to see my daughters punished with a baby should they make a mistake.” Who is the baby to Obama, but his grandchild! Now if you can not call that godless and evil, then I put you in the same category as President Obama and there is no doubt in my mind that God will do the same.

America has become a nation that has lost almost all aspects of godly morality, calling a lie the truth and calling the truth a lie. America has traded its faith for its idols of pride, fame, illicit sex, drugs and money.
Today America will spend millions of dollars to fight the abuse of animals and yet give its approval to murder millions of babies through abortion. There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. (Proverbs 6:17-19) “There is no peace,” says the LORD, “for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22)

I speak not what I believe, but the truth of what I know and have learned from reading God’s Word. The greatest gift a parent can give their child other then love, is the burning desire to read through the Bible each year. As a born-again Christian, I must have a heart of compassion and to show it through deeds of mercy, forgiveness and the ministering to those in need, be it physical or spiritual.
I must continue to write what I know to be the truth and pray that our leaders would have an awaking as to just how real God is and that with a godly sorrow of repentance that they would turn away from their sins and with great remorse, cry out for forgiveness and turn to the only One, Christ Jesus that can save them from a world that is bound for destruction.

Are you a person with honor and integrity and one that will stand for the truth? Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free. (Proverbs 11:21) If you do desire to know the truth of just how great are the sins of this nation; I would suggest that you read the Bible along with the Bible Pathway Ministry’s guide, plus at least one of the three books I mentioned earlier.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. (Psalm 111:10)
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. (1 John 2:15-17)
