It’s not that we don’t want truth

Because deep down we really do,

But when the idolatry of lies veils our heart

We won’t see what’s right and true.

Because the truth always hurts

Since it’s laden with much light,

As it wipes away our cobwebs

And makes things pure and right.

How can we truly see God’s ways

When we’ve been indoctrinated indeed,

To believe that we came from apes

And this life is all we’ll see?

Because deception is Satan’s trademark

As he appears as an angel of light,

To tantalise our fleshly ways

But laden with many lies.

The idolatry of all lies

Is a fixture of our fallen nature,

When we believe what we hear and see

Without questioning its stature.

But lies simply cannot stand

And when they are exposed,

The scales from our eyes will fall

Revealing enemies and foes.

The idolatry of all lies

Will grasp our heart and soul,

When we won’t discern or pray for truth

Where deception is a stronghold.

When our mind is stripped from lies

More clarity we will see,

As we understand the spiritual battle

That wants to claim our soul indeed.

But when the chains of darkness

Are released as we repent,

The glorious truth will set us free

Where God’s blessings will be sent.
