Truth Playing Second Fiddle

By Jim Rapp

What makes a normally honest man,
a faith professing, Christ professing, truth defender,
bear false witness, knowing his words can
serve one purpose only, to wound his foe by slander?

It is, without a doubt the spirit of Anti-Christ,
that sets the Truth aside for momentary advantage
or cloaks behaviors dishonoring Jesus Christ
in pious, but self-serving, “Christian” language.

"Whoever is not with me is against me,
and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”
The spirit of anti-Christ is what we see
when fidelity to Truth yields to other matters.

Anti-Christ is not some beast rising from the sea,
but rather a rebellion in the human breast
that chooses the Lie, the gauzy Lie, hard to see,
to demean another and lay their cause to rest.
