Remember Pinichio Whenever he lied, his nose would grow long. Fortunately, our nose doesn’t get long in real life, but something else gets long. That is the list of “wrongs” or “sin” that God keeps track of. Oh, you didn’t know, check this out….
Have you been deceived before? What about accussing someone for something they never did? Well, I have and I'm sure you have too. I have been watching some documentaries on WWII lately and false propoganda was used to deter each other in war. Well, life is like that too....
Unless, we repent and ask God to forgiveness of our sins-lies! How come we lie? This question was asked by a friend of mine a couple of days ago (12/18/03). He was wondering why friend would lie to one another. I (Sal) told him sometimes we lie because for the safety of one’s situation. For example, one time I lied to a friend about places I didn't want to hangout at because I didn’t want him to start drinking. Then this friend I was talking to said, “isn’t that deceiving”. Yes, it is after I thought about it! There is a better way to tell the “truth” in a manner of lying. We all sin, in fact many Christians struggle with this through pride by not humbling before God every night repenting all of theirs sins that particular day. We go to bed “thinking” we were “sinless”! For me, I struggle with this! I try to ask God to show me all my wrongs or sins I committed each day as I do my “quiet time” at night.
“Heavenly Father, show me all of my sins I committed today or in the past as I want to be a brighter reflection of Christ. Thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the forgiveness or our sins and who rose again the Third Day to show that we may have eternal life. Show me how I can be a more like you to the hurting world out there that they’ll come to know your love. Forgive me right now of sin(s) with the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross. In the precious “Jesus’ name. Amen!”
This is what Paul said, "15Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst. 16But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life." 1 Timothy 1:14-16
That is why I’m writing this, we all can be deceived by one another. In fact, Satan’s speciality is this one, which he loves to get “us” humans to fight one another due to misunderstanding. He comes in different forms, like how he came as a snake during “The Fall” (Genesis 2) to deceive Adam and Eve. Read it! There are many other stories in the Bible that many were deceived.
He in fact has made each of us individually “hate” ourselves (e.g. image, looks, etc..) with constant “negative” thoughts (e.g. “I’m not good enough”) about ourselves and presume others are “thinking” the same about “us”. I constantly here from people, “name thinks I’m this or that”. I tell them right away, what does God say in his “love letter to you”. In the first place, we are not on earth to keep constantly-endlessly doing just “good works” to please others or please ourselves (self-gratification). We are here on earth to please God through our lifestyle of worship (not just during church services, but everyday in our lives outside of the church building through our “actions in love” towards others or how we take care of our bodies). Our Heavenly Father want us to draw near to Him, which can be done with that personal relationship with Him everyday!
What about now? How are we lied to as citizens of America? I’m not going to point my fingers towards our nation’s education system because it’s not perfect. We are always learning new “things” as we discover new facts. Here are some lies that some are still being “brainwashed” through our educational system:
-Myth: Columbus’ Discovery of America
Fact: The Native American Indians already were here and it was already discovered, which the first Europeans definition of “discovered” was “colonized”. Some say the Vikings were here before!
-Myth: Humans were “evolved” by Apes
Fact: God created Man! (Genesis 1)
*this has contributed to our nation’s and global’s racism problem that our own educational system is trying to combat what it started when the “Evolution Theory” was first taught.
Another way that Satan has deceived all of us is through the many ways to Heaven, whether is through “good works” (like mention above), “going to church”, or “false religions or cults”:
-Muslim (see article (1)
-consulting mediums or the dead
-More on this and others....(Leader U, comparative religions)
-KKK (protestant Christians that were racist)
"Klansmen were Protestants, of course, but they cannot be described exclusively or even predominantly as fundamentalists. In reality, their religious affiliations mirrored the whole of white Protestant society, including those who did not belong to any church."-Wikipedia
Why won't the American press tell you that Christians blew up the Federal building in Oklahoma City? by Scott (from themodernreligion)
Oklahoma City Bombing & (Turning Victims into Murderers) from freedom domain
Oklahoma City -- A Decade Later by William F. Jasper April 18, 2005 Issue (The New American)
"How is Kenny Trentadue?s death related to the OKC bombing? Jesse Trentadue, a trial lawyer and Kenny?s older brother, thinks he now has important clues that finally may lead to the answer to that troubling question. FBI documents he recently acquired under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) indicate a connection between Timothy McVeigh and a group of notorious neo-Nazis known as the Aryan Republic Army. Also known as the Midwest Bank Robbers, these extremists operated out of a backwoods Oklahoma compound known as ?Elohim City.? Trentadue believes his brother Kenny was mistaken for Richard Guthrie, one of the bank robbers, who is mentioned in an FBI memo along with McVeigh. This would agree with the statement of David Paul Hammer, one of McVeigh?s death row inmates, who claims McVeigh once stated his opinion that Trentadue had been killed by federal authorities who thought he was Guthrie.
Another individual who appears in an FBI memo obtained by the Trentadues is Andreas Strassmeir, an illegal alien of German nationality who served as the ?chief of security? at Elohim City. His name is blacked out of the memo, but there is no doubt that it is Strassmeir whose identity is being hidden. This magazine has reported extensively on evidence pointing toward both Strassmeir and Guthrie as prime conspirators with McVeigh in the OKC terror attack. We reported also on the important information provided by Carol Howe, an undercover operative for the federal government inside Elohim City who warned her superiors of the upcoming attack and fingered Strassmeir as the key suspect. Evidence continues to build indicating that Strassmeir also was a government operative, quite probably working for the CIA. Is that why the government has gone to such lengths to keep him out of the OKC picture?

Psychic Powers, from the UK
"Samuel was able to come to Saul because he was an Old Testament saint in the days before Heaven was open to God's redeemed people. In the days before Christ's ascension to Heaven, the saints of God including Samuel waited below the surface of the earth in the "bosom of Abraham" or what is often referred to as Paradise.
By going through death and resurrection Jesus opened the way into Heaven at His ascension. As a consequence, after His resurrection, the Old Testament saints of God were resurrected and left Paradise to join Christ in Heaven. "

Road Bruma Lake,
My name is Mr.Atkins M.Tutu. and I work in the International operation department in a Local Bank here in South Africa On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a BAL. Of 36,000,000 (Thirty Six Million USD) on further discreet investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving nob beneficiary to the account.
The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former operator of the a/c is a foreigner in particular and I am certainly sure that he is dead,because the the death was recorded by department of home affair and nobody will come again for the claim of this money A foreigner can only claim this money with legal claims to the account Holder;therefore I need your cooperation in this transaction.
I will provide the necessary information needed in order to claim this money, But you will need to open an account or provid existing account information where this can be transferred.
If interested send your private Telephone No. And Fax number including full details of the account to be used for the Deposit I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction as my job and the future of my family would be jeopardized if it were breached.
I want to assure you that the transaction is without risk if due process is followed accordingly. Finally, I will give you 25% for your corporation.
I look forward to a favorable response from you through this my private email if you are intrested to do this business with me or you should reply with all the further details.
I wonder if this e-mail, like many others (e.g. Nigeria)is a way to fund terrorist cells (e.g. 9-11) around the world when "ignorant" people respond to this?
What is the main source of what you are seeking (eg. religion, church, doctrine, etc..)?
When I eat, I try to look at the labels of the box of the food I’m eating from (e.g. cereal, liquids, etc..) because I want to know what I’m putting in my body-especially all this health factor causing diseases:
cancer, heart disease, etc..that’s killing many of us Americans.
I believe we need to do the same when we are looking for “spiritual food”. What is the doctrine of that church, what is behind that doctrine, what is behind the man that wrote the doctrine? Is it Jesus?
Many are getting deceived into these “false religions” because of the outward appearance.
