The Lie


The lie is that we can work our way to God. The lie is that we can sit back and watch while the world burns. The lie is that we can have faith and no fruit. The lie is that we can know where another person's heart is before God. The lie is that sex is sinful. The lie is that money is evil. The lie is that I am never responsible: someone else is always to blame. The lie is that setting boundaries is selfish. The lie is that I am in control. The lie is that everything is black and white. The lie is that perfectionism is godliness. The lie is that I am forgiven but I still need to strive. The lie is that I can please everyone. The lie is that tolerance is necessarily wrong.  The lie is that there are absolutes that must be followed without question. The lie is that there is no such thing as truth or evil. The lie is that love has failed. The lie is that there is no God.  - Melody Kay Young
