Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:1-6 NIV
Blindness shields not just the eyes
But the spirit of the heart when scales
Like those shielding a fish, we can but wish
Truth uncovers all the deeds of darkness
Existing in our government–no matter who’s involved,
So American democracy stands as a beacon, resolved
To be a light unto the world in spite of all the lies.
Blinders are put on race horses to make sure they only see what’s in front of them–forcing them to look straight ahead so they are not distracted by events or issues that may take place on the sidelines.
Some people are physically blind from birth–never knowing the difference between light and dark, colors and hues, but have a remarkable spiritual sight and know how to distinguish between truth and lies.
Some people lose their sight to accidents or illness–and have known the beauty of light and dark, the mesmerizing colors that exist in our world and though some are bitter about the event in their life that caused them to no longer see–they accept their plight and do all they can to continue to live a full life–understanding how blindness changes perception.
There are two political factions–each blinded in their own way–to what they see as right. At the moment–the loyalists to 45 were blinded by hatred, racism, bigotry and need–and were duped by the gas-lighting perpetuated by those who know how to distort truth to make it palatable to the gullible. And then there are the Resistors–fighting for truth to be exposed on every side and angle, blinded by the need to know–what is and what isn’t.
I am proud to belong to the latter–The Resistors who are fighting to expose truth no matter where it lands. I have not been gas-lighted–duped into doubting what I see in front of me for my eyes are wide open, my ears unstopped, my mind ready to analyze information from various sources and draw conclusions based on the evidence and facts uncovered–not opinion or persuasive means by another.
There are times in which we must be able to admit where we are–blinded by a desire to stay focus on the task-at-hand and for me–that task is do all I can to help expose the intentional undermining of the democratic process in our 2016 election. With the continuing evidence brought to the surface, I know I heard God right from the start and I am more determined than ever to stay the course–the path He has directed–in being in this monumental effort to right wrongs and expose all the lies and liars.
The burning lake–is going to be overrun if current events is any indicator of all those who deliberated lied–under oath–and the pathological liars who do nothing but lie. All the GOP leadership will have a place in that lake for continued effort to cover the truth with their lies and it is evident to anyone with a functioning brain–they are scrambling to cover their own behinds, but the truth–in all of its ugliness will rise to the surface, exposing all involved in the collusion to simply grab seats in Congress with the help of the Russian hacking.
Are you blinded by the god of this world or determination to know truth?
