There is a classic debate that has been around since ancient times. It’s called the Liar’s Paradox.
Here’s an example:
This sentence is a lie.
But, wait…we know that lies are UNtrue. Right?
So, if the first sentence is a lie, then the sentence is TRUE. But if the sentence is true, then it’s a lie after all!
What if we take it one step further and apply that logic to a person? If a known liar says he is telling the truth, then he must be lying. Or if a known liar says he is lying, then he must be telling the truth? How do we know what to believe?
Sadly, I’m afraid that’s exactly what’s happening to all of us these days. We’ve all said it, “I just don’t know what to believe.” What we see and hear with our own eyes and ears doesn’t match what we’re being told.
Here are some examples from recent weeks.
When Dr. Fauci’s doublespeak isn’t questioned, what are we to do? He has gone from “masks don't work” to “masks work,” to being totally FOR hydroxychloroquine ten years ago, to being AGAINST it and forbidding doctors to prescribe it. Then when under cross-examination, he said it would be the first treatment he would prescribe. So what is true?
President Biden, Dr. Fauci, Vice President Harris, Jen Psaki, and even Nancy Pelosi all said they would never impose a vaccine mandate, but yet here we are. Are they liars lying or liars telling the truth which means it’s a lie?
The CDC has been shrieking about increased COVID cases as a result of the Delta variant. The media tells us on a daily basis that hospitals are overflowing and that there are more cases now than a year ago. But, reports out just this week are questioning the very statistics used to push the COVID narrative. A study by the left-leaning magazine, Atlantic, shows that at least HALF of the current hospitalizations for COVID are mild or even non-COVID cases.
That information dovetails with another whistleblower report that hospitals are lying about their overloaded ICU capacity. He claims that the hospital he works for tells the media that their ICU is overflowing, yet the hospital had previously CLOSED three-fourths of their total ICU capacity earlier in the pandemic when they had ZERO COVID patients. Is the hospital lying when they say they’re at 98% capacity if only a fraction of their total capacity is open and in use? Is their “capacity” claim a truth or a lie?
When a President stands before the nation and declares our withdrawal from Afghanistan as an “extraordinary success,” but yet we can see with our own eyes that it is NOT a success, is he telling the truth, or is he lying?
After the suicide bomber killed 13 US service members, the Pentagon launched a drone attack in retaliation. The Pentagon announced that it killed two ISIS-K operatives. Information later came out that the botched drone strike killed an aid worker and as many as seven children. Yet, when under oath before Congress, our Secretary of State, Antony Blinken said he had no idea who was killed in the drone strike.
These are but a few of countless examples of lying, obfuscations and half-truths we’re fed every single day.
So, what can we do when it feels like we're living a liar’s paradox?
The answer, Patriots, is to use your God-given inner discernment. Yes...that still, small voice that speaks to us; but that we most oftentimes ignore. It’s that gnawing feeling in our gut that tells us that something is very wrong.
When faced with the daily chaos, static and cognitive dissonance that is heaped on us by the media and our government, take a deep breath and ask yourself these questions:
Does this feel right to me? NOT, is this the right thing to do?
Is this my truth or am I being told, coerced, or feared into this truth?
What does my intuition say?
If I quieted my friends and family and strictly listened to me, what would I believe? What would be my absolute truth?

We are all divine, sovereign beings with the capability to discern the underlying energy of a lie….or the energy of a truth. It just takes practice and courage to stay strong and steady.
“A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if nobody believes it.”
