You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)
This is a central verse in helping us understand the mentality and tactics of evil. It can be a hard truth to get hold of even if we know it in our brain factually, the thing just seems so foreign to us. Evil people lie. And they can lie with a face on that looks like someone who is telling the truth. Evil people in other words, wear a truth mask.
“But I’m sure he is telling the truth. He seems so sincere.”
Sorry. When it comes to the children of the devil, appearances mean nothing.
Recently I have been reading up on the Joe Biden family. The material I have been looking at is fully documented with many witnesses and physical evidence attesting to it. It has to be or the authors of these things and the people who are publicly making statements about it all would have been sued for libel and slander a long time ago. But it’s true. The Biden family has been leveraging Joe’s political office for decades in order to make millions of dollars. (He is a U.S. Senator by the way and was Obaman’s VP, and as you know he is running for President. Fortunately his campaign is imploding).
Now, I am not trying to lay politicis on you here. I am just using Joe Biden as an example. Here is a guy who is essentially the head of his own organized crime syndicate, who looks into cameras every day and convinces people that he knows nothing about these corruptions. He looks right at you and you hear people saying quite often – “Joe is one of the nicest men I know.”
And there are these Joes all around us. People who look squarely at you and tell you things and give no hint that they are speaking absolute lies. This is evil in action and we must be wise to it.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
