In 1989, the song Blame it on the Rain reached number one for two weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. This was Milli Vanilli’s third number one single. However, Milli Vanilli’s fame and fortune was short lived, running off the stage during the middle of a concert. What the world eventually found out, these two stars were lip syncing each song, not the actual singers of their music.
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless, James 1:26.
In this age of environmentalism, today’s weather patterns are used by some scientists to claim this is proof of global warming. However, if meteorologists can’t accurately predict tomorrow’s forecast with all their fancy technology, there must be some other force at work in the earth’s atmosphere, If you want a scapegoat, blame it on the Jet Stream.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us, 1 John 1:8-10.
History has a way of exposing imposters, liars and those covering up the truth. Whether its a group like Milli Vanilli, global warming or secrets from the past, time will bring what was once in darkness into the light. Therefore, don’t get caught up in arguments that occur weekly on cable television and talk radio. Rather, live your life as an open book, confess your short comings and may the truth about Christ set you free.
