What Enemies Will Say

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 23:1-26.
Enemies will say anything about you to destroy you or to keep you from gaining a prominent position. Americans, keep this in mind as we listen to the campaigning for president. Do not believe everything you hear or see. Do not believe everything you hear from our current president’s enemies. Do not be gullible. Let me show you just how vicious people can be against you, if you are about to be put in a prominent position. Look at what the enemies of Jesus said about Him to Pilate,
“Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, ‘We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King'” (Luke 23:1, 2). His enemies opposed the idea of not paying taxes to Caesar! They did not want to pay taxes to him, but they knew how to get to Pilate and they knew how to stir up the crowd. If Jesus truly fought against paying taxes, He would have been their champion. They flat out lied about Him.
People will lie about you. People lie about the president, they lie about the person they are running against. Be careful what you hear.
