Why Are We So Cynical?

I don’t know about you, but I have become much more cynical these days. I guess it’s because I don’t know what is True and what is not. The news media is a propaganda machine for the Left, and the Right baits their followers with stories that could be True, but no one really knows.

Here is an example of a new book that has grabbed the attention of the Right. The book is written by Peter Schweizer and is called, ‘Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite.’

Here’s a small taste of the revelations PROFILES IN CORRUPTION uncovers:

· How five Biden family members profited off of their relationship to Joe Biden

· Elizabeth Warren’s son-in-law produced a film co-funded by the IRANIAN GOVERNMENT

· Elizabeth Warren’s system for bagging MILLIONS from corporations by leveraging her position as a government consultant—despite her current boisterous stance against corporate America

· Bernie Sanders’ Presidential Campaign quietly flowed TENS OF MILLIONS of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife

· Bernie Sanders’ scheme that allows him to steer Campaign cash and favors to his family

· Kamala Harris’s explosive PRIEST ABUSE COVER-UP

· Eric Garcetti’s crony dealings

· Amy Klobuchar’s corporate cash extraction method

Does this author Peter Schweizer have an inside track whereby he can prove these allegations beyond a shadow of a doubt? Who knows? I have been reading another book by the same author called ‘Secret Empires’ which is about how foreign countries have been filtering money to the children of powerful people in Washington. This is how they get influence with those powerful people is to go through their children. This is why the son of Joe Biden was of such interest to President Trump regarding the Ukraine issue. I find the story quite fascinating, and if True, it gives reason for our Government to investigate how these foreign entities are manipulating our system.

However, at the end of the day, how do we know any of this is True? Is Peter Schweizer writing historical fiction or does he ‘have the goods’ on all these folks? There is a Christian author by the name of Joel Rosenberg who has been very influential in telling historical fiction from the Bible, and I am wondering is this Peter Schweizer doing the same thing? Who knows?

I guess what I am saying is that my cynical nature says, “I don’t know” and I am almost at the point of not caring. I like dealing with Truth, not speculation or educated guessing. There is Truth that can be proven; those are the tangibles that I like to think about. When people speculate about Prophecy or make up scenarios that might happen, I am not interested. There are too many conspiracy theories and they are all interesting, but are they True? I think I am in good company with the Apostle Paul who said:

1 Timothy 1 3As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, 4nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith.

It could be that Peter Schweizer has some good information on his topics, but he is one source. People like me who become cynical get that way because so much of what we read or hear ends up being nothing at all. People in Government make up all kinds of stories to feed the people. I can’t tell you how many movies I have seen where there are scenes where the Government makes up a story to feed the news agencies. I don’t think that is too far-fetched. As American people, we are being fed the stories that are basically not True and have been altered for a desired affect or reaction. You can tell this happens simply by the words and phrases used during a newscast.

In an era past, the news agencies were designed to hold Government officials honest, and whatever they said, the journalists investigated to find out the Truth. That is the kind of news that I grew up with and I know they weren’t perfect either in telling the whole Truth. Today, however, the news is what the agency creates in order to sell the news in ways that creates ratings and viewers. It has nothing to do with telling the Truth, in fact, the Truth may be too boring for their bottom lines. Here is an example of how this has affected us. I do podcasts and ask people to do interviews. When I ask community leaders for such an interview, their immediate reaction is, “I have to talk to my supervisor to get permission.” Why is that? It is because of the fear of any interviewer using the ‘gotcha’ questions and the story gets twisted to something that may be speculation or a finding that is negative. I have to reassure any interviewee that my questions are about information and the goals of the organization they represent.

My point is simple: “Only God is Clear and Truthful.” He has only one ulterior motive and this is to bring you into Fellowship with Him. There are no hidden agendas with Him, and no speculation. As we find ourselves deeper and deeper into the throes of the Last Days and all its Deception, the only place you will find solace is in the Book of Truth, the Bible.

I hope you are an avid reader of its pages; it will make you wiser than anything this world can give you.
