TRUTH: Go ahead; pucker up!

"and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
John 8:32
Girls at an Oregon middle school were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. After they put it on they would press their lips to the mirrors leaving dozens of teenage lip prints behind creating a real mess.

The principal called the suspected culprits to the bathroom; she explained the lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian.

She then had the custodian demonstrate how he cleaned the mirrors. He took a long-handled brush, dipped it into the toilet, then scrubbed the mirror just as he had being doing everyday for some time.

The principal has reported there have been no new lip prints on the mirrors since the demonstration.

If people knew what was really behind the evil they participated in, they would give them up in a “New York-minute.”

Ezekiel gives us a window into this truth when he tells of how the Lord took him to the Temple and revealed the wicked abominations behind the rituals of apostate and idol worshipping Israel [Ezekiel 8].

What was revealed there were “the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” spoken of
by Paul in Ephesians 6:12.
