Lying Has Become The New Normal – JLD

Lying Has Become The New Normal – JLD

Granted, we should expect a playful amount of dishonesty and subterfuge on April Fool’s Day, we must also admit that the spreading of false narratives, is at an all time high. Once upon a time a man’s word was his bond, and if you said you would be somewhere at a certain time, come hell or high water you would be there. Now and days tardiness is commonplace, and we have a whole litany of reasons (excuses) why the truth cannot, should not, and will not be shared. Lying to ourselves and other people, has become the new normal and in The Church and The Community, Page 207, I described how lying caught up to someone, as it always does. Sooner or later you will forget your lie, or someone might fact check what you told them. The worst is when you have lied so long, you believe it… try being 100% honest about everything, for a day, then a week, then a month. It’s worth it, honestly.
