The Father of Lies

I know mine is not the only voice that screams to the heavens in frustration at the absolute brazenness of our media in their so obvious allegiance to emperor, Barak/Barry Obama. I am amazed at the complete lack of any effort at all to even appear the least bit objective in their coverage this election cycle. You might say, “why are you amazed, this has been going on for a long time?”. And, yes, it has. But in the past most networks, with the exception of sycophants like MSNBC and their ilk, made some effort at least to give some small appearance of impartiality.

Now however, they are so desperate and afraid that the voters (whom they view as too stupid to know better) will throw their anointed messiah out this November. Therefore they have given up on trying to maintain the facade of objectivity in order to devote every broadcast second to propagandizing for their dictator in chief and lambasting those who criticize him.

It doesn’t matter where you stand on many of the issues regarding our President. The fact is there are issues out there that demand the scrutiny of the press. Whether you think the President was born in this country or not, or whether or not he was an Indonesian citizen or what you think he was doing in Pakistan and Russia does not matter. THE FACT IS that there is ENOUGH hard evidence of questionable actions on the part of the man who now sits in the White House to warrant the media’s full attention in vetting these issues and others.

It is significant that the mainstream media, including FOX, has not devoted a second to the Barry Soetoro/Indonesia issue.  Searches of the FOXNEWS website on the keywords Barry Soetoro yielded everything from articles on Marion Barry to the death of Robin Gibbs of the Bee Gees. But not until page three did I run across an article regarding the President. It was written by AP reporter Nedra Pickler. In her article she refers to the Indonesia matter as “an argument popular on the Internet and taken seriously practically nowhere else”. And this is on FOX!

We don’t know if the President truly was a citizen of Indonesia. In his own book he writes of his time there and the school he attended, a school that only Indonesian citizens can attend. We don’t know how much of his accepted past is factual and how much is simply concocted for his media persona. We don’t know where the truth lies in regards to various, seemingly substantiated, allegations about his past. We don’t know because these issues have not been fully addressed publicly (other than the on internet of course) and consequently they are given the appearance of illegitimacy. The only way the public can know for certain is if the media did it’s job, it’s moral obligation, and publicly and objectively vetted this President about whose past we still know so very little.

The Bible refers to Satan as the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in the children of disobedience, Ephesians 2:2 and the father of lies, John 8:44. It is certain that Satan works through the airwaves to spread lies, immorality, filth and to belittle God and those who love HIM. As believers we often marvel at how intelligent and honest people can ignore all the evidence supporting the Bible and put their faith in the strangest of places. We also shake our heads at how obtuse these same people can be when confronted with the truth about Barry/Barak Obama. It is almost as if they were under some sort of strong delusion. Food for thought for we know that with the Anti-Christ will come a strong delusion so that those who have rejected Jesus Christ will believe a lie. (No, I am not implying Obama is the Anti-Christ… Yet.)

We do know for certain that those who reject the Lord work very hard at convincing themselves and anyone else they can that God does not exist. Or, that the Bible is full of inconsistencies and lies etc. They work equally hard at convincing themselves that Barry/Barak Obama is all that they believe him to be and that anyone thinking otherwise is a fool or worse, evil. The outright fascism that is evidenced anytime someone comes out against Obama is frightening. See this article at Breitbart: That kind of fascist intimidation and harassment has no place in The United States and can only come from the sycophantic disciples of a Media Whore President who desire nothing more than the obliteration of this Republican Democracy for the Peoples Socialist Utopia Dreamland where only THEY decide what is good for us and we, who are too ignorant and hopeless to help ourselves, silently watch as our freedom disappears down a deep dark well.

Until things change, the internet is the only source for news and information that is contrary to the party line. This November will speak to the power of the internet as a source for those who want to know the truth. If Obama is re-elected I wonder how long it will be before the Internet (and other non-party line media such as talk radio) has a leash put on it. The polls indicate most people still rely on ‘Big Media’ for their news however more and more they indicate a migration to the internet particularly among young boomers and among the twenty somethings.

 The reality is at this time however, that the ‘Big Media’ still have the floor in the arena of public opinion. Until they do the job they are morally obligated to do in this bastion of freedom and democracy ‘truth’ will lay in the hands of the father of lies. And, for now, the media are in bed with him.

- Fear not good people! We know we live in perilous times and all indications are that things will get worse. But, we also know that if that is true, then it is because it is meant to be so. In this exists great hope for all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. For in HIM we escape the judgment that is to come   (Rev 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.")   and we will spend eternity in joy and peace with our wonderful savior Jesus Christ. Until then, when faced with the afflictions of this dark age remember the following verses and take hope:

James 1:2-4, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

James 5:11, "Behold, we count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful."

1 Pet. 4:14 16, "If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you...but if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not feel ashamed, but in that name let him glorify God."

Matthew 24:9, "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name."

John 16:33, "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."

Acts 14:22, "strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, ”Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God."

1 Pet. 4:13, "but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation."

God bless you all and may the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ be upon you.
