On one of my Facebook pages this morning I had a post from a group which referenced a passage from 2 Thessalonians 11 – 13. I am not sure what message the poster wanted to convey, but I certainly think it is relevant to the situation in US politics today.The passage reads as follows:
11Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, 12 so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. – RSV
If you read the whole chapter, it is talking about the end times and what will happen leading up to them. I have not come up with an opinion on this either way, whether we are nearing the end or not, but I do believe there are those out there who are trying (and succeeding) to make others believe what is false.
Look at the stories dealing with the uprisings in the Middle East. Are they due to a You Tube video which no one has seen or were they part of a coordinated terrorist attack? We are unable to get any straight answers from the White House on any of the incidents as none of the minions seem to be on the same page.
Whether or not you believe all things ultimately come from and are controlled by God, you certainly should be questioning why the lies and deceit from this administration, especially when it comes to the nation of Islam. Are they trying to hide something?
