Haven’t we had our fill of liars on Capitol Hill? Enough already! Personally, I’m tired of those politicians who play Americans for gullible optimistic fools who believe anything and everything they are told… Perhaps now is a time we should revisit the old adage: “Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see”
“Fool me once, shame on you.

Judicial infatuation: follows upon wilful perversity and obstinate unbelief. God sends, not shall send (Authorised Version), still less “permits to be sent.” It has the full force of the vivid prophetic present, “a working of error,” i.e., a working in them which issues in the increasing destructive power of error; the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart is the parallel which suggests itself. It lies in the nature of God’s moral government and in the moral constitution of man, that sin, indulged, weakens the strength of resistance, and so invites and prepares the way for the more frequent and violent assaults of temptation. Thus yielding to sin receives at last its punishment in the slavery of sin. The working of error has its aim in this that they should believe the lie, as opposed to the truth just indicated. Man must believe something — if not the truth, with all the blessings which its reception brings, then the lie of the devil with the doom pronounced upon it. U
