Until this week, few Americans knew Jonathon Gruber, the architect of Obama Care. An economist from MIT, Gruber recently admitted to hiding the true cost of Obama Care from the public. In a video that has gone viral, Gruber jokes, referring to voters as stupid, gleeful he was able to deceive Congress into passing a bill that could bankrupt America.
A win at all costs mentality, lying if necessary, is destroying the character, morality and virtues of this once great nation. You don’t have to go to church to understand the concept, “you reap what you sow,” Galatians 6:6-7. Whether you’re a politician, parent or student, you can’t escape the truth as lies will be exposed sooner or later. Though the dishonest may be laughing now, God will bring justice in the end.
If Jesus is correct, the devil is the father of all lies. A subtle thought here, a tiny compromise there and before the know it, the seed for deceit has been planted. Once implanted into an unknowing participant, Lucifer is the one who is laughing now, with the same smirk on his face after Eve gave into temptation while in the Garden. However, God doesn’t put up with lame excuses, Genesis 3:12-18. Therefore, watch your steps and tongue, James 1:13-15, to avoid from becoming a pawn of the devil.
