The Superficial Beauty of the Lie.

Vic Biorseth, OWM; Monday, November 25, 2013

It is the Superficial Beauty of the the lie that presents the initial allure and attraction of untruth and falsehood. The trick is to see through the veil in the first place. Seeing through the veil is best done from a grounding in Truth. Where is that grounding? Our American religion - what Franklin called general Christianity - tells us two things about it:

  1. God is good.
  2. God is Truth.

  1. Opposing God, or the anti-God position, is evil.
  2. Untruth is opposition to Truth, which is and must be evil.
