LIES AND MASQUERADES
2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
The internet is becoming, more and more, a place of lies and masquerades--people pretending to be someone that they are not. Actually taking time to write lies and then put them on the internet with somebody's else's name as if that person is the one that wrote those lies, meanwhile the reader does not know that he is reading the words of a deceiver.
The wicked cannot answer the force of argument put forth by those who believe the truth because there is no answer against the truth.2 Corinthians 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
The highest level to which a man can rise is to simply agree with the truth. Agreeing with the truth instantly catapaults a man in whichever subject area the truth is found. When we hear the truth, all we have to do is hearken to it and receive it and we will have the highest wisdom. All that we have to do is agree with it.Isaiah 43:8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
Isaiah 43:9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
All that is outside of the truth is nothing. All lies come up flat and are nothing. Therefore the wicked rage against the truth using various tactics.
The wicked have no answer to the truth (no real answer that anybody's soul can feed off of). All that is outside of the truth is nothing. All their lies come up flat and are nothing. Unable to answer the force of the truth (and desiring to stay in wickedness), the wicked seek to destroy the righteous with murder, lies, various tricks and deceits, masquerades, mischiefs, etc. It has been like this from the beginning--beginning with Cain who slew his brother, Abel, because Abel's works were righteous.1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
1 John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
1 John 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
The subject of lies, masquerades, dangers, and false messages reminds me of a statement found in "Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development," a report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation and Global Business Network, May 2010, page 37--...The positive effects of the mobile and internet revolutions were tempered by their increasing fragility as scamming and viruses proliferated, preventing these networks from achieving the reliability required to become the backbone of developing economies--or a source of trustworthy information for anybody. [emphases ours]
