Our nation is now built on falsehood. Scientists falsify research, politicians lie, educators lie, the media, movies and TV rig, fib and equivocate. Surveys have determined 9 out of 10 Americans lie regularly. A powerful force in modern culture tells that everything including values and truth is merely subjective. It is relative. It is your opinion.
Doctrines that deny a standard of truth are a lie in themselves. They are delusion and according to the Holy Bible will lead a country and a people to destruction. As individuals, one may think it is a small thing to lie but if someone lies habitually and does not repent, the Holy Bible states that all liars have their part in hell.
Lies can be complicated and intricate or they can be direct and bold-faced. There are many expressions that fall under the category of lying: falsehood, slander, forgery, gossip, defamation, delusion, hypocrisy, and many, many more including a popular term used to describe spokespersons for political leaders, "spin doctors". However, to be a spin doctor or any other form of liar is not an honorable job, to say the least, for a "spin doctor" takes the truth and twists it.
The honor code at West Point states: Cadets violate the honor code by lying if they deliberately deceive another by communicating an untruth through any form of communication to include the telling of a partial truth and using partial information or ambiguous language with the intent to deceive or mislead. The Holy Bible forbids lying and condemns the liar. The Ninth Commandment in Exodus20:16 states, "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."
