We live in an era of deception and manipulation. From business tycoons and politicians to dating and social media, it has become common place. In times like these, who wouldn't like to be a human lie detector? It would certainly save us a lot of heart ache and lost time, but, is it really possible? The short answer: Yes! Bank tellers do it all the time and here's their secret: Know the authentic!
A bank teller is an expert on authentic currency. They know how it looks, feels, and smells. When a fake bill comes along, it is quickly recognized because it does not line up with the truth. Ta-da! Human Lie Detector!
BECOME AN EXPERT ON TRUTH AND A LIE WILL STAND OUT, NO MATTER HOW CLEVERLY DISGUISED.
How does one become an expert on truth? First, we must have a relationship with The Truth. Jesus is "the way, the TRUTH and the life" (John 14:6) Second, we must be filled by the Holy Spirit who is our teacher, counselor and access to the mind of Christ (I Corinthians 2:16). Finally, study! Study God's Word. (2 Timothy 2:15). Memorize it, meditate on it and allow it to bond with the core of your being.
By doing these three things, you too will become so intimately acquainted with the real, false will have no hold on you.
