I Don't Believe It

The Wake-Up Herald

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

I'm Sorry, But I Don’t Believe It


Guest Columnist, Dave Daubenmire

I take no pleasure in saying this, but I don’t believe it.

It is a sad state of affairs that we have reached the point where you can’t believe anything you hear. In fact, you can’t even believe what you see.

Call me whatever name you want to, ridiculing me won’t shut me up. The truth is you just can’t believe it any more.

It, you say. What is it?

Everything…anything…you just can’t believe it anymore. Modern-day America is just one big pack of lies, told by a cadre of liars.

I’m sorry…whatever it is…I don’t believe it.

How about you? Do you believe them? Do you believe the malarkey they are trying to feed us?

I’m not sure which makes me angrier…the lying…or them thinking I am dumb enough to believe the lies.

That’s why I have adopted a new position; A variation of Ronald Reagan’s “Trust but verify” philosophy.

I don’t trust until I verify. That’s my new motto.

They tell us that:

Bin Laden is dead.

He was unarmed.

They buried him in the ocean.

We can’t handle the pictures.

That terrorism is crippled.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They tell us that:

Obama was born in America.

His birth certificate is authentic.

He loves America.

He is eligible to be President.

He loves Jesus more than Mohammed.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

The want us to believe that:

Republicans are for smaller government.

Republicans want to stop abortion.

Republicans are for the free market.

Republicans believe in individual liberty.

Republicans are better than Democrats.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They tell us:

The economy is improving.

The dollar is strong.

Don’t buy silver and gold.

The stock market is safe.

The bankers are honest.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They tell us that Secular Jews:

Don’t control the media.

Don’t control Hollywood.

Don’t control the financial systems of the world.

Aren’t behind the ACLU and SPLC.

Are a discriminated, powerless minority and if I speak out I am anti-Semitic.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They want us to believe:

Our schools are doing a great job.

We need to spend more on education.

Higher education is not controlled by communists.

The Department of Education improves education.

Our students haven’t been purposefully dumbed-down.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They have tried to convince us that:

Individual gun ownership makes us less safe.

The courts can be trusted.

Judges are impartial.

Our elections are honest and the voting machines are tamper proof.

Every vote counts and all votes are counted.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They have tried hard to sell us the idea that:

Fox News is fair and balanced.

Bill O’Reilly is looking out for you.

Hannity is not a Republican cheerleader.

Limbaugh doesn’t carry Republican water.

Fox News is not controlled by the Saudis.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They have tried to convince us that:

Homosexuality is normal.

Women don’t regret their abortions.

Planned Parenthood is good for women.

Our tax dollars don’t fund abortions.

God is ambivalent about child-killing.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

They want us to believe that:

Our elected officials go to Washington to serve us.

They follow the Constitution.

Power doesn’t corrupt.

There is a right to healthcare but not a right to life.

There are honest people in Washington.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

Pastors tell us that:

The rapture is going to rescue us.

God is love and does not believe in judging.

Government schools are good for Christian kids.

We should stay out of politics.

If we send them $100, God will send us $1000.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe it.

Never in American history have so many lies been told by so many, so often, about so much.

I don’t trust until I verify. Turn on your truth-detector.

Wake up. No one is looking out for you.

Editor’s comment: As foreseen by the prophets of old, God’s people are ‘Destroyed for lack of knowledge’ (Amos 4:6) and are merchandized by false male and female leaders—religious and political--who are interested only in filing their own coffers with biblically condemned ill-gotten gain.  


“Thus saith the Lord GOD, And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? Ezekiel 13:19


“Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” Psalm 40:4


Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
