It is human nature to create a narrative or rationale to get what you want or live the way you want. My kids were legend at creating narratives, invoking the quetionable, and using like words like "everybody" or "all" to convince themselves and me that they needed the latest and greatest thing to fulfill their purpose for living. They took liberties with the truth because their desire trumped the truth. And like most dads would, I saw through it. In fact, when people use words to create energy or panic in you to do something or act a certain way watch out! The ends do not justify the means and selling the truth out is never good for anybody. In the New Testament Jesus told his men that others would do this very thing to dilute his influence and their commitment to him. How specifically? By speaking lies about them or lies to them to ignite fear in them that would take over control of their choices in the moment. But the Son of God fortified his men with some powerful words of his own which would cause them to not panic, not be disloyal, and advance God's will under pressure. In the end, Jesus said, the truth will prevail and they would be victorious.
