Here is my simple response. I would love to hear yours.
Proverbs 6:16-19, “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
Well if God says he HATES these things foolish is the person that believes they are above God’s law and awareness. He’ not kidding around with this kind of stuff.
Let me just encourage you with this. I have lived under the lies of a foolish but persuasive person for years…public words of profound character assassination….deception…
One day God said to me…“Your weakest position is defending yourself. What you birth in the flesh you will need to keep alive in the flesh…what you allow me to birth in the Spirit I will keep alive in the Spirit. Trust me with your reputation.”
I needed to stop being a man pleaser and start fearing the truth of what God has said.
Not an easy undertaking and very difficult at best. But God has proven this to be true and oh the freedom it produces. A person’s true intentions will always be revealed. Time will be the test. The reality of one’s heart will always come forth and that is why God has told us He will not be mocked.
For someone to attempt to deceive others they themselves must be deceived.
