Lies

The previous post was on the subject of lies based on a book that I read, 52 Lies Heard In Churches Every Sunday. As I was reading it, I was strongly reacting to the word, “lie” used throughout the book simply because truth and lies are hardly ever found together in church teachings.

It is error that is found in churches. Every church has them. God knows about them. I believe He uses them in the process of our growth.

Therefore, I can understand errors occurring due to misunderstanding of the Bible being taught. They are unintentional. Lying, however, whether half-truth or not, is always intentional and deliberate. It is always a withholding of information. Is that not what Satan was doing in the Garden of Eden?

Anyway, the video song below is the song, after much altering of the lyrics, is being sung by those Christians who have reacted adversely to “false” teachings and feel they have been deceived.

The word, “girl”, in the song may symbolize a church teaching “lies”.

The word, “lonely”,¬† may symbolize a denominational (or non-denominational) church after experiencing splitting and division resulting from disagreements from attempts to either maintain or correct her errors.

Sadly, many Christians have decided to stop having anything to do with religion, church and fellowship because of these so-called “lies”. Many of these Christians have become cynics of religion, agnostics or atheists because of this. But, I believe, God still has not given up on them just as He has never stopped giving up on me.

Lies, lies
You’re telling
Me that you’ll be true
Lies, lies,
That’s all
I ever get from you

Tears, tears,
I shed a million tears for you
Tears, tears,
And now you’re loving someone new

Someday, I’m gonna be happy
But I don’t know when just now
Lies, lies,
Breaking my heart

You think that
You’re such a smart girl
And I’ll believe what you say
But who do you think you are
Girl, to lead me on this way, hey

Lies, lies
I can’t believe
A word you say
Lies, lies
Are gonna make
You sad someday

Someday, you’re gonna be lonely
But you won’t find me around
Lies, lies,
Breaking my heart

Someday, I’m gonna be happy
But I don’t know when just now
Lies, lies,
Breaking my heart

You think that
You’re such a smart girl
And I’ll believe what you say
But who do you think you are
Girl, to lead me on this way, hey

Lies (ah) lies (yeah, baby)
I can’t believe a word you say
Lies, lies are gonna
Make you sad someday

Some day, you’re gonna be lonely
But you won’t find me around
Lies, lies, breaking my heart

I said, baby, now
(Breaking my heart)
Oh yeah, you’re just
Breaking my heart
(Breaking my heart)
