Truth is so very important, especially today, when just about everything you hear and see is deception. I’ve long said that Christians, of all people, should be the most informed, the most knowledgeable and the most faithful bearers of the truth, even if the truth “hurts” or is unpleasant. And make no mistake, these days, the truth can be very unpleasant.
The Bible speaks a lot about lies. Number 9 of the Ten Commandments, found in Exodus 20:16 is, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” Let’s look at some other Scriptures. Proverbs 12:22, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are His delight.” Proverbs 13:5 tells us, “The righteous hates falsehood...” There’s also Psalm 101:7, “No one who practices deceit shall dwell in My house; no one who utters lies shall continue before My eyes.”
Here’s one that’s very appropriate for our day. Proverbs 17:4, “An evildoer listens to wicked lips, and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.” And Proverbs 21:6, “Getting treasures by a lying tongue is the fleeting fantasy of those who seek death.” Wow.
And Jesus, when He was confronted by the religious leaders of His day and accused of having a demon in Him, responded, “Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.”
Indeed, there is a famine in our land — a famine of truth and knowledge. People are distracted by the enticements of this world and prefer a life of comfort and ease. Seeking and sharing knowledge and truth would be an inconvenience and uncomfortable. It would stir up trouble and people might call them names. They might even be persecuted, as all who speak the truth today now are.
It’s no wonder that people are now heaping up for themselves false teachers who tickle their itching ears. It’s no wonder that the greatest critics of the Bible are those who have never read it. And the greatest critics of those who speak the truth about the most important issues of the day are usually professing Christians who love to “cherry pick” only the soft areas of Scripture, that never offend anyone or challenge anyone’s worldview.
Our modern day preachers have failed in their duty to preach the whole counsel of God. Instead, they placate the masses, seeking to be popular and “well-liked” by everyone. Isaiah 30: 9 & 10 describes very well what most people want today: “...this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, ‘See not;’ and to the prophets, ‘Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits.’”
But God calls His people to be wise, to be knowledgeable, to understand the days we’re living in, and to know what’s really happening...even though it’s not pleasant. Ephesians 6:11-13, “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore, take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
Proverbs 15:14, “The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.” Proverbs 18:15, “The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” And Ezekiel 33:6, “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”
Clearly, we have a God-given duty to seek knowledge, wisdom and understanding in this world of deception that’s swirling around us now, everywhere we turn. Yet I’ve found that many times it’s the Christians who prefer to remain in ignorance of the most important issues of the day.
I was speaking with a Christian man some time ago, and he was telling me how some of his neighbors seemed to be acting in a hostile manner toward him. He pointed to their house, down the street from his, and it was proudly adorned with a rainbow flag. It was incredible to me that this regular church-going man had no idea what that rainbow flag stood for or meant, so I explained it to him. Believe it or not, he told me, “I just thought it was a pretty yard decoration.” He was absolutely clueless, and still looked at me with skepticism.
Recently, I reported on how the town of Lahaina on the island of Maui, Hawaii was purposely destroyed by globalist government officials. I put a ton of work into researching that article. I watched countless hours of video footage, taken first-hand by those who were there. I dug deep into my research, studying more than sixty sources, and spoke directly with people who live in the Lahaina area and told me what took place first-hand.
My conclusion — that this was no ordinary “wildfire” and that the town was intentionally destroyed in order to “build back better” a new “SMART” city, a so-called “15-minute-city” where globalists will be able to experiment with their agenda of absolute totalitarian control over the people there, has been confirmed by countless others. I’ve had more positive comments on that report than any I’ve released in a long time. But I’ve also had naysayers who refuse to believe verifiable facts... and in every case, the negative comments have come from Christians. They just refuse to see the truth, even when it’s presented so clearly and plainly that it’s obvious even to unbelievers.
Recently, I was informed by one of our volunteer distributors of our newspaper in another state, that he no longer wants to receive Wisconsin Christian News or distribute it. He told me it was because he no longer wants to distribute a newspaper that is so depressing with the news of the day and that never offers people the HOPE of rescue and salvation in Christ.
But my message has not changed, nor has the content of Wisconsin Christian News. We have always presented the most vital news of the day from a BIBLICAL perspective, and along with that, the HOPE that we have in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The news today is almost never good, and the evil ones that run this world are more wicked than ever in my lifetime. They’re no longer even trying to hide their intentions, and even the current regime in power in America has labeled Christians as the number one “terrorist” group in the country.
And Wisconsin Christian News is a NEWSpaper — we seek to provide information, education, and inspiration in every issue. And I believe we do. If all we were going to do was print poetry and recipes, there are plenty of other things I could do that would have a greater impact. As for this man’s claim that we “never” offer people hope in Christ or any kind of encouragement, I counted no less than 17 articles in our current edition that do exactly that.
I can only conclude that a change has occurred in this man, who was formerly so zealous for the TRUTH, but who now only seems to want to spread the “love gospel,” and ignore the deceptions and lies, as the “kings of the earth conspire together against the Lord and His anointed,” (Psalm 2), and remain ignorant of the wiles of the devil.
Yes, absolutely, our God is in charge of all things and His righteousness will prevail. I’ve stated MANY times that there is no “political solution” to the many crises we face today, because this is a spiritual battle. But of all people, I believe Christians should be the most knowledgeable and most informed of all. Yet this man is not alone. Scripture tells us that the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine, but instead will seek after ‘teachers’ who will only tell them what they want to hear.
Yes, the news today is depressing. I know that. I get it. I deal with it every day. But WHY do we need to know what’s going on? Why do we need to see these news stories and understand what’s really taking place? So that we, as Christ-followers can STAND, as we’ve been commanded by God to do. So, we can share this information with as many others as possible and push back against the lies and deception. So, we as the Church, can be the restraining influence against evil that God has called us to be.
So, we report on the most urgent and vital issues of the day. We warn parents about the grooming and sexual exploitation of children in public schools. We warn people of the serious dangers of the “jab” and the overall depopulation agenda. We warn of the invasion of our country by foreign enemies, and how our government is complicit. We warn of child trafficking, the LGBTQP+ agenda, the globalist’s communist New World Order, the tent cities that are exploding across this nation as homelessness, drug addiction and madness overtakes us, and many other things.
Those on the Left seem to be so concerned about the welfare of children, that they’re willing to pump opposite-sex hormones into 12-year-old girls and expose preschoolers to filthy pornography. Yet they turn a blind eye to the epidemic of missing children. On September 26, it was reported that in Cleveland, Ohio fifty children have mysteriously gone missing in one month alone — and over a thousand are missing from that one city alone, this year alone. Last year, 1600 children mysteriously went missing in Cleveland. Were you aware of that?
Did you know that the UN General Assembly has unanimously approved the WHO’s “Global Pandemic Treaty” complete with lockdown enforcement? Did you know the UN has approved protections for pedophiles, or as they call them “Minor-Attracted Persons?” Are you aware that the war in Ukraine is simply a money-laundering scheme for the DC politicians; that we’ve sent nearly $100 billion there so far, and so far, have sent billions of dollars to them 45 times? Did you know that, even according to the Left-leaning Wikipedia, Ukraine is the third most corrupt country in the world?
Are you aware that the FDA has recently recommended a completely UNtested COVID shot for children 6 months old and older — under “emergency use authorization?” And then have you asked the question, “where’s the emergency?” How long are we going to continue this charade of a “pandemic emergency?”
Friends, we must be informed. We must be knowledgeable about all these things, and that’s what Wisconsin Christian News is there for. There are many who take what they learn, share it with others and then motivate people to action. And that’s the most important part because knowledge without action is useless. The information we share is meant to be shared with others and then bring action, as Christ-followers serve as a restraining force against the wickedness of these dark days.
If you haven’t seen our newspaper before, call or email and request a complimentary copy. You may even want to start a distribution route to spread the truth — and God’s Word — in your own community, wherever you live. It’s Wisconsin Christian News, but it’s not just for Wisconsin. By God’s grace, we’re distributing nation-wide now. Here’s a truth-telling ministry that YOU can actually do, right where you live. Will you step up? Will you STAND? Now’s the time.
