Archive for the ‘False Accusations’ Category

DFCS, the Division of Family and Children Services, is awash in what the Bible calls strongholds. A stronghold is an incorrect thinking pattern that has molded itself into a warped and perverted worldview. Strongholds are either rooted in or fabricated from deception and error.

Some beliefs start right, but then mix in error. For example, many social workers begin with a heart-desire to help others, but then they mix in unbiblical ideas from humanist psychology. When confronted with a Bible verse like Proverbs 23:14 (You shall beat him with the rod, and shall deliver his soul from death), they will say that God was wrong. Other “child savers” start off with a wrong foundation. Perhaps they were abused as children themselves, and now they are driven by a neurotic need to get even. This unforgiveness makes them vulnerable, and many are deceived by demon spirits.

No matter what the source, these strongholds govern a person’s reactions to daily situations.

Many parents who are falsely accused of child abuse find that trying to work with DFCS is like hitting a brick wall. When one encounters a social worker who is inflexible and irrational to the point that he or she is blind to the truth—or even to the possibility of a parent’s innocence, it is almost certain that a demonic stronghold exists and is exerting control over the situation.

How Does Satan Build a Stronghold?
Every stronghold has a foundation in sin. Satan still uses much the same technique as is recorded in the Genesis account of the original sin in the Garden of Eden. First he plants an appealing idea in a social worker’s mind. It might be, “You are overwhelmed with work! Just put down a little white lie in the report so you can finish faster. It takes too long to substantiate everything, and besides, if it is not true, they probably did something just as bad or worse when it wasn’t reported! It will all balance out.” Or maybe he tells them, “You know this child is probably safe with its parents, so it won’t really hurt anything to keep the case open a bit so that you can show that your department needs more funding. If you have a lot of extra cases, you can ask for a raise.” Or maybe Satan says, “You know in your gut that these parents are bad, even though you don’t have any actual proof. Just exaggerate a little in your report so that they won’t get away with it!”

It does not really matter how Satan spins it, all he has to do is to get the social worker to lie a little on a report. Then he can use their sin to build his stronghold. And if the devil cannot entice the social workers to lie, he can get them to listen to and participate in gossip. Gossip, slander and perjury are all sins. Gossip repeats rumors without facts. Slander is using false charges or even misrepresentations which defame and damage another person’s reputation. Perjury is lying under oath, but it also includes lying on official reports made “in the line of duty.”

Satan uses these to build a stronghold where DFCS promotes unbiblical doctrines and stirs up evil suspicions.

Why DFCS Workers Come Off As Being Haughty
3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine, and doesn’t consent to sound words, the words of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 he is conceited, knowing nothing, but obsessed with arguments, disputes, and word battles, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 constant friction of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth.
1 Timothy 6:3-5.
They come off as haughty because they are conceited as pertains to a doctrine other than the Bible and the teachings of Jesus. They are like the Pharisees, believing they know best.

Can the Strongholds Be Pulled Down?
They could be, if DFCS was willing to repent of their lies. But DFCS is addicted to the empowerment that they derive from their warped and twisted doctrine. Every day that they participate in gossip, slander, perjury, and lies, they give Satan the right to stick around and spread more deception. Furthermore, may judges grant them immunity for many of the lies. There is no natural way to pull down these strongholds. It is tough enough to pull down a stronghold in one’s own life when there is a desire to be rid of it. That is done by casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, (see Ephesians 6). Until DFCS repents or Divine Judgment falls, their core demonic strongholds will remain.

Many people will be very shocked on Judgment Day when their eyes are opened into the spirit realm and they see that DFCS has been run by a horde of what some might call ‘Jezebel’ and ‘Feminist’ spirits that specialize in witchcraft. Witchcraft, at its root, is not about a cauldron of foul-smelling potion. Witchcraft is about using power that was not delegated by God to control the lives of others.

[♦[♦[ Part of the series on How Child Protective Services opposes the Teachings of Christ ]♦]♦]

14 And he called the people to him again and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand: 15 There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.” 17 And when he had entered the house and left the people, his disciples asked him about the parable. 18 And he said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, 19 since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?” (Thus he declared all foods clean.) 20 And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. 21 For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 greedy desires, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, an evil eye, slander, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
Mark 7:14-23

CPS totally misses the point that Jesus teaches here. And it is not surprising that they do because they are always looking for evil in others, never in themselves. They think finding evil in others makes them good! I am serious.

In my experience, what comes from the heart of CPS is false accusations and lies. They think the worst of others, they slander them in their investigations and reports, they are greedy to prosecute, they are full of pride, and they make some of the most foolish decisions of any professional vocation ever.

An evildoer listens to wicked lips;
A liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.

Proverbs 17:4

Liars like to listen to lies. It strengthens them. They need to be around other people of their own ilk.

The Message paraphrase puts it this way, “Evil people relish malicious conversation; the ears of liars itch for dirty gossip.” Liars get a perverse kind of support and comfort from other liars. They will give heed to and believe other liars.

Liars frequently won’t trust or believe people who tell the truth.
If you are a very honest and trustworthy person and you find someone who is irrationally suspicious of you, chances are extremely high that the person is a liar.

As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds.
Jeremiah 6:7

Jeremiah paints a word picture of evil people. He compares them to a fountain because they keep gushing. In this metaphor, the fountain is the heart. The word in the original language indicates that the fountain or cistern is man-made, not a natural formation. Violence and spoil, cruelty and ruin are heard splashing out of them continually.

Notice how subtly the point of view changes here. First the fountain casts out wickedness, but then the point of view shifts. Instead of following with, “the fountain makes” sounds of violence and spoil, it shifts to saying the violence and spoil “are heard.” They are heard by the Lord, and he is grieved by it.

The malicious accusers are always flowing and always full. If one nozzle of a fountain is blocked, the water erupts with more force someplace else. It cannot be stopped. It is reminiscent of Isaiah 57:20, “the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.”

If you keep reading the rest of the chapter, you will find that God gave them warnings, but they remained obstinate. Eventually they are tried and rejected. Good counsel given them in the midst of all this, but in vain they would not listen.

It is important that these people are warned, even if they never heed the warning. When they finally come to judgment, God will be able to say, “Look, you were warned. You have no excuse.”

An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
Proverbs 19:28

That is the King James translation. Alas, with verbs like scorneth and devoueth, the people this verse is talking about will probably think it refers to somebody else. Here are some contemporary translations and paraphrases:

An unprincipled witness desecrates justice; the mouths of the wicked spew malice.
~ Message

A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
~ New International Version

A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice; the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
New Living Translation

A rascally witness makes a mockery of justice, And the mouth of the wicked spreads iniquity.
~ New American Standard

A rascally witness perverts justice and the talk of the wicked fosters mischief.
~ New English Bible

There are two words used in these last passages that have acquired a childish “cutesy” connotation of ‘rascals’ getting into ‘mischief’. These words are not describing two-year-olds who have climbed up on the countertops to get into peanut butter jars the way that Pooh gets into a hunny pot. The translators used the words the way they are defined in Noah Webster’s dictionary:

Rascally: adjective
1. Meanly trickish or dishonest; vile.
2. Mean; vile; base; worthless.

Mischief: noun
1. Harm; hurt; injury; damage; evil, whether intended or not. A new law is made to remedy the mischief.
2. Intentional injury; harm or damage done by design.
    Thy tongue deviseth mischief. Ps.52.
3. Ill consequence; evil; vexatious affair.

So, there you have it, people who give dishonest and fraudulent testimony are evil. Plain and simple. They have contempt for God’s judgment, and therefore disrespect God.

Matthew Henry’s Commentary sums it up this way:

28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.

Here is a description of the worst of sinners, whose hearts are fully set in them to do evil. 1. They set that at defiance which would deter and detain them from sin: An ungodly witness is one that bears false witness against his neighbour, and will forswear himself to do another a mischief, in which there is not only great injustice, but great impiety; this is one of the worst of men. Or an ungodly witness is one that profanely and atheistically witnesses against religion and godliness, whose instructions seduce from the words of knowledge (Proverbs 18:27); such a one scorns judgment, laughs at the terrors of the Lord, mocks at that fear, Job 15:26. Tell him of law and equity, that the scriptures and an oath are sacred things, and not to be jested with, that there will come a reckoning day; he laughs at it all, and scorns to heed it.

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned.
Matthew 12:34-37

It is true that we cannot see into other people’s’ hearts; it is equally true that sometimes we do not know our own heart. But we can hear what people say, and out of the abundance of the heart; the mouth speaks. We will miss the little things that the heart does not have in abundance, and we are at constant risk of hearing only a portion of a heart out of context, but overall, this is the best biblical guideline that we have been given on how to judge.

A person who makes a false accusation is a viper; and he is a vipers who has no fear of God. People who make and prosecute false accusations are evil. This country suffers under the mentality that throwing out something to see if it sticks is a proper investigative procedure. Such false allegations subvert truth, they do not help “discover” truth. It is a sin and it will be judged as sin.

An idle word is not merely vain and empty, it can reveal a person’s heart as being injurious and wicked. Idle words expose what is in the heart of the speaker. Idle words may seem to be harmless and frothy, but they are some of the best indications of what a person’s heart is really like. The speaker who lightly makes a false accusation can properly and correctly be called evil.

It is the height of hypocrisy to suppose that a prayerful word “counts” and a vapid word does not. They all will require an accounting.

People who cannot stop their lips from making false accusations by giving heed to sanity and prudence and will have their lies judged with fire and brimstone.

Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.
Exodus 23:7

The entry from August 13th covered the first two verses of this chapter. They said that you should not give a false report, that you should not join someone else’s false report, and that you should not go with the majority just because they are the majority.

Those verses were about not giving a false report. Verse 7 is about not receiving one. This part is going to trip many people up on Judgment Day. They have told themselves that they are okay because they did not make the false accusation. God differs, and there is no begging about it. Participating in a false charge will make you accountable when the innocent and righteous are hurt.

Many innocent people have been hurt, suffered loss, and even killed because someone heard a false report and acted to turn it into a false charge. This sin is prevalent among Child Protective Services. Many innocent families have been hurt, destroyed and broken because of lies that CPS propagates without foundation. Many of the case workers are truly delusional after a few months on the job. They excuse their own actions that they would never tolerate in someone else.

The complexities of how they start with a dream of saving children and get sucked into a vortex of sin where they are actively harming families irreparably is beyond the scope of this blog post, but this failure to keep far from false charges is one of the foundation stones. Many of the policies of CPS are exactly opposite of what God commands, and this is one of them. They pursue false charges, and God will not acquit this wickedness no matter how many evil judges give them immunity.

But you are doing away with the fear of God
and hindering meditation before God.
For your iniquity teaches your mouth,
and you choose the tongue of the crafty.
 
Job 15: 4, 5

Today we revisit the same verses from yesterday’s post, this time in the English Standard Version.  Remember that Eliphaz, the speaker of these verses, messed up on determining who was to blame and therefore messed up on his explanation of why, but Eliphaz does show an understanding of how things work.

Cause and Effect – How things work

Within these two verses there is a spiraling cause and effect.  Once the spiral begins, both parts are causes of the next event and both parts are effects of the previous cause.

One side is doing away with the fear of the Lord and slacking off in your thoughts of Him.

The other side is purposeful sophism, in other words, choosing to lie. 

Definition of sophism: a deliberately invalid argument displaying ingenuity in reasoning in the hope of deceiving someone.

In choosing the tongue of the crafty, the tongue of the father of lies, one diminishes their meditation and devotion to the true God.  A reduction in the fear of the Lord has the effect of iniquity teaching the mouth.

It is worth pointing out that this did not happen to Job.  He never did away with his fear of the Lord and he never chose to speak against God—which was the point of the entire test. Satan thought he could get to Job the way he had gotten to Eve.  In this regard, Satan could not make Job fall.  (God has some other complaints about Job that He discusses with him in the end of the book, but in the Main Event, Job’s actions were flawless.)

Remember that the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety before he told his open lie. During this subtle beguiling stage before the cause/effect spiral augers in too deeply, the Church often mistakenly encourages the “giving the benefit of the doubt.” Eve gave Satan the benefit of the doubt and look where that got the human race!

The Christian church today is often cruel to those who raise legitimate alarm. Like secular whistleblowers, they are likely to be shunned, or at the minimum are thought of as callous and unforgiving. 

It is also a good thing that the innocent do not need forgiveness, because the unrepentant false accusers are certainly merciless.  Job had many, many needs— far more needs than most people have; yet the need of forgiveness for doing away with the fear of God and using a crafty tongue against God weren’t two of them.

4Indeed, you do away with reverence And hinder meditation before God. 5For your guilt teaches your mouth, And you choose the language of the crafty.
Job 15:4, 5

The speaker for these verses was Eliphaz, one of Job’s friends. Eliphaz was an okay guy but he had one flaw in his theology, which was that God was causing Job’s problems. Even though he messes up on the who is to blame and therefore mess up on his explanation of why, Eliphaz does have an understanding of how things work when he starts with the correct data.

If God had caused Job’s troubles, then Eliphaz’s deduction that Job would have been guilty might have been correct because God would not have punished Job unjustly. But what was happening was not a punishment; it was Satan being Satan.  Job maintained his innocence, was correct in maintaining his innocence, and others got mad at him for it!

Within his speech, we do see that when Eliphaz begins with the correct premise, he does reason to the correct conclusion—
When guilt teaches the mouth and the language of the crafty is chosen, then reverence is done away with and meditation is hindered before God.

But based on his false assumption of Job’s guilt, Eliphaz proceeds to rip into Job and compound the false allegations. Eliphaz claims that all the smart elders “knew” that all the losses that Job was suffering were “proof” of Job’s guilt.

But it was all circumstantial evidence based on a crafty half-truth. There was another explanation for what happened to Job, the correct one, but the local councilmen were unwilling to accept that they might be wrong and they were doggedly entrenched in their presumption of Job’s guilt.

On the  recent post about the History of Deceit, it was shown how Satan craftily changed the woman’s premise about the fruit before he told his bald-faced lie. Acting on false presumption makes errors grow. Eliphaz began with a false presumption and ended up adding to his own guilt by making many false accusations about Job.

1O God, hear my voice when I complain. Keep my life safe from the fear of those who hate me. 2Hide me from the secret plans of the sinful and from the noise of those who do bad things. 3They have made their tongues sharp like a sword. They use poison words like arrows. 4They shoot at the blameless man from their hiding place. They are quick to shoot at him and are not afraid. 5They talk each other into doing sinful things. They talk about setting hidden traps. They say, “Who will see them?” 6They think of ways to do bad things, and say, “We have made a perfect plan!” For the inside thoughts and the heart of a man are deep.

7But God will shoot at them with an arrow. They will be hurt very soon. 8They will be made to trip and fall. Their own tongue is against them. All who see them will shake their heads. 9Then all men will be afraid. They will tell about the work of God. And they will think about what He has done. 10The man who is right and good will be glad in the Lord and go to Him to be safe. All those whose hearts are right will give Him praise.
Psalm 64

Psalm 64 provided by studylight.org

Today we look at an entire Psalm in context. David is praying for protection.

Verse 3 in the King James begins, “Who whet their tongue like a sword.” Whetting or sharpening a sword is an intentional act. It is a preparation that is taken when a person desires to be prepared to attack.  The second part of the verse speaks of bending the bow to aim venomous words like arrows. Apparently one weapon is not enough for them.

Verse 4 reveals that they shoot at the innocent. They may not think that their victim is innocent in the heat of the moment. But he is, and God knows he is, and if they were not so hell-bent on attacking, then they have the means available to them to find that out. But they do not want to. They like the power of their attack. (And in the cases of CPS and cops, they often thrill in the ambush; that is what was attractive about going in to that line of work. In the case of private citizens, they often thrill in the thought of siccing the cops on their victim.) They are quick to shoot; the innocent person was totally blindsided.

Notice also how confident these attackers are. The innocent has no warning or any opportunity to defend himself. They are totally confident of their success. They do not fear God. They have become accustomed to destroying for the excitement and self-aggrandizing importance of it all. They are used to getting away with hurting the innocent.

But…

God has an arrow prepared too. Notice the number. Those who accuse the innocent need many weapons and arrows. God uses only one.

This is significant.  It also explains why they seem to get away with it. Once God does strike, they are taken out on the first arrowhead.
