“An evildoer gives heed to false lips; A liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue” (Proverbs 17:4 NKJV). Surely in a political campaign year, this is easily understood. “Evildoer” describes someone whose heart is full of wickedness and sins. “False lips” describes the mouths through which the heart of evil speaks falsely. Only a wicked person wants to feed his, or, her vile heart with lies coming through “false lips.” The “liar” scrapes up garbage scraps from tongues of hateful spite, and cares nothing about truth, righteousness, or purity! The problem for the rest of us is when these people are the Media trying to feed us on their slop! Jesus said the Devil is “a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44 NKJV), but we know His children! It’s hard to know the truth after the Devil’s family reunion!
