Author Of Spin

Today there is no certain truth
But rather how it’s spun.
The devil, father of all lies
Must think his day has come.
He has his people everywhere
In fact where are they not?
Our young can’t tell the truth from lies
Believing all they’re taught!
Lord we ask You for revival
By Your Spirit bring us light,
Give us wisdom, understanding
To distinguish wrong from right!
We’re living in ‘postmodern’ times
At least that’s what we’re told.
Though terms like this do not make sense
They’re taught to young and old.
The powers that be will spin the truth
Until a lie sounds true
And question all established truths
Cast doubt on all we do.
Lord halt all this propaganda
Deconstruction of the truth,
Redefining of our language
Changing meanings to confuse!
The devil works behind the scenes
Promoting lies and spin.
If he can undermine God’s word
The truth belongs to him!
For every person in the world
Needs something to believe
The devil fears they’ll turn to Christ
His goal is to deceive.
Lord reveal Your holy Scriptures
Every word of gospel truth,
Free the captives from the devil
By the Saviour Jesus Christ!
For God created man with faith
That all might turn to Him.
Instead man took the devil’s word
The father of all spin!
The end has come, the stage is set
The world’s in disarray
For when the church says: What is truth?
It’s surely lost it’s way!
Lord forbid that lying teachers
Lead our children from Your way.
Church emergent; Satan’s servants
Seek God’s mercy while you may!
“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
