Lies appearing as truth

In interpreting the Bible, twisting the facts is called eisegesis-using a scripture out of context to support one's own ideas. It's a big No-No, but it's done by people all the time, especially by pastors from the pulpit. America suffers from a great deal of eisegesis by people twisting not only the facts, but the truth to support their own agenda. 1 Timothy 4:1-2 says, "Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron." While this is speaking of those leaving the faith and lying about doctrine, there are lies every day that we must discern or be lead astray.
In today's society, with the internet, instant communications and a 24-hour news cycle, it is really easy to plant a lie and people will not only believe it, but swear by it and repeat it as truth. Those with agendas can manipulate millions with the push of a "send" button. We see it everyday with the news media. Those posing as journalists present the "facts" in what they say is an unbiased way, but in reality they are lying about what happened because they are speaking these "facts" from their own agenda-driven hearts. It's difficult to know what to believe. One example is a new book by Michael Wolff, titled, "Siege-Trump Under Fire" where the author makes a very false claim that has fueled calls for impeachment. 
According to the Guardian, Wolff states in his book that Special Counsel Robert Mueller drafted an obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump on counts of witness tampering, witness retaliation, and corruptly influencing a pending proceeding. When Mueller's spokesman Peter Carr was asked by the Guardian to confirm the veracity of Wolff's claim, Carr categorically denied the claim and responded, "The documents that you've described do not exist." Yet, you can bet that the news channels are full of reports about this claim, and it will most likely further fuel calls for impeachment from the neo-communist coup-makers. People will believe it and repeat it. Wolff has been under fire for inaccuracies in his previous best seller "Fire and Fury," which also made outrageous factual errors.
Wolff, in response to questions about "Fire and Fury," essentially admitted he lied about his insider account of the White House. Wolff told Vassar Political Review:  "I am an observer: I investigate nothing. All I do is look and write what I see and what I hear, and my job--which has nothing to do with truth--is to take what I see and what I hear and write that in a way that readers can come [as close] as possible--as close as I came--to the experience of doing this. I want to be able to turn what I see into something that a reader says 'oh, I see that too... I'm not a political journalist. I'm not, frankly, all that much interested in politics. I'm a writer. I'm barely a journalist, actually. I am a writer." So goes the twisting of the facts so lies appear as truth.

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
