At the beginning of this year, I noted that 2014 may have been The Year of the Lie. And I resolved to do my part to counterattack in 2015 with the truth.
I think I did a decent job of keeping that resolution. And I am happy to note that many others were so fed up with lies that they spoke out with the truth or at least backed those who did so. Like him or not, one big reason Donald Trump is doing well is that he is perceived as telling it like it is, whether it’s politically correct or not. (Whether said perception is accurate can be debated another time.)
I also noted a year ago that the Big Lie is a frequent tactic of the Left. But perhaps their lies have become so brazen and so frequent that real Americans have had enough and are fighting back with the truth. Perhaps 2015 is the year when truth began a comeback in this country. I certainly hope so.
As for my part, some highlights in truth telling this past year:
I continued to call out “churches” and parachurch organizations for backing evil, including Catholic Charities and InterVarsity. I’m ecumenical that way.
I continued to tell the truth about our U. S. “criminal regime disguised as an administration.”
I was willing to continence hard questions, such as it is time for a national divorce, whether endemic and tyrannical lawlessness in government will have lawless and ugly consequences, and whether one can be a genuine Christian and remain a Democrat. (And please do not presume my answers until you carefully read those posts.)
And all that and more in spite of knowing these are dangerous times to be truthful. I even considered self-censorship.
As I’ve noted, when I began this blog, I did not intend for it to become nearly this political. I do not intend for it to remain this political beyond 2016 and perhaps beyond the next few months. But the need of the times compelled me to do my part and tell the truth in the midst of a political culture of lies.
Not unlike Jeremiah, I really hope the Lord finds me something else to do and fast. We shall see. But for now I can say, in 2015, however imperfectly, I told the truth.
