The Growth of the Deceitful

They come in all guises politicians, businessmen, celebrities, and yes even religious leaders. They say they care about you, that they want to bring healing to the masses. But in reality all they are looking too do is to deceive and separate. They do it to expand their own power and their own wealth. They do it at the expense of the same people they claim to care about and in these difficult times it is becoming increasingly easy for them to achieve their goals. Blessed with a silver tongue they prey on fears. They repeat something as fact over and over again without any collaborating evidence and to those who are struggling, grasping at straws for anything to hold on to it soon becomes fact. They use the fears of those who feel their voice has never been or is no longer being heard. They prey on this not to help bring the masses together, not to help uplift society but rather to increase their own power.

Fortunately history has shown us time and time again that their success will be fleeting. They may garner fame and accumulate wealth in the short-term but as the bible verse says their empire is built not on the rock but on sand and when the rains fall and the winds blow their empire will be swallowed up by that same sand on which it was built.
