Why are some Sierra Leoneans such liars ?

Published on December 14, 2010 by Cocorioko News   ·   No Comments

One of the most disgusting traits to be found in some Sierra Leoneans is their propensity to lie. They lie with a straight face. While it is true that politics is a very dirty game and those who get involved in it should be prepared to hobnob with some nonetities who are known  liars and deceivers, it is shamefully pathetic how some people have decided to make lying their stock-in-trade. One only needs to follow postings in certain  forums and some online newspapers to realize that lying has become a preoccupation with some Sierra Leoneans, notwithstanding the fact that the Bible clearly states that liars will have their part in the Lake of fire that burns with sulphur and brimstone.

Why are some Sierra Leoneans such liars ? There are many reasons for that. They lie because they want to be what they are not. When they are so puffed up with their own self-importance and think that they have to lie to sustain such puffy attitudes , they do not bat an eyelid to lie .  They claim to be responsible for other people’s successes when they cannot help themselves. How can you claim to have helped somebody reach Heaven but you your very self cannot enter Heaven? Does that make sense ? This does not refer to relatives who help their kin but lying outsiders who want to take credit for other people’s achievements.

One thing that is obvious in this world is that only people who are gullible will believe certain lies being peddled in society against public officers by certain disgruntled and hateful detractors.  People will look at the circumstances and decide not to believe , especially those who know how government appointments are made, for instance. Listless individuals who cannot help themselves will never be believed if they go around lying that they helped certain government officials get their jobs. The question that they will be asked is,  if true why are they so desperate for jobs but have not got them ? Lying has become such a trade among Sierra Leoneans that even the cocroach can claim to be responsible for the elephant’s successes. What a shame when men have become so reprobate they don’t care about lying anymore. But again, the blame is with Sierra Leoneans.We are too gullible. If there were no gullible people, there would no liars. “I helped John Brown get his job and will go all out to have him kicked out of it “. How low can some Sierra Leoneans sink with these lies and empty threats  ? How base can some of us become  in getting so really puffed up for nothing ? Should the butterfly consider himself a bird because he too can fly ?

Some people who have also become disgusted with this menace of liars have been advising others fervently not to hurt their heads over liars. And it is worth advising others to do the same. If you were recently the beneficiary of certain good jobs and your enemies who are envious of you are going around making empty threats to the gullible that they helped you get the job and will make sure that you are kicked out , do not hurt your head over these hell-bound scoundrels. They will expose their own plans by insinuating that they will try to carry out their devillish aim by framing and concocting lies about you to those that matter  . One wonders what gives these mugs the belief that they will be believed and their lies will be acted upon. It is all a result of puffed up egoes for nonetities to think that serious people will act on their lies and schemes.

One advice that any government official  facing these straits should heed is to just do their jobs and shut their ears to the lying liars . They have to know that whenever they climbed the stairs of success in this life, they will have enemies . People will become very jealous and will go out to undo their peace. The Bible clearly teaches Christians not to be afraid of those going around threatening their lives.  Maybe, the evil ones are worshipping evil gods who do not judge based on justice and innocence. However the true God, the God of Abraham , Isaac and Jacob, the God who sent Jesus Christ to die for us on the cross is a God of justice. He has assured us that He is a God of Righteousness, truth and justice and will never allow evildoers to prevail over us.  Let the Psalms below give you confidence and assurance that God will protect you again these hell-bound evil people. Let them go and lie about you where they want.God the Almighty will not let them be believed. THEY WILL FALL INTO THEIR OWN TRAPS AND THEIR OWN SWORDS WILL PIERCE THEM.



 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
         from whence cometh my help.
2  My help cometh from the LORD,
         which made heaven and earth.
3  He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
         he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4  Behold, he that keepeth Israel
         shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5  The LORD is thy keeper:
         the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6  The sun shall not smite thee by day,
         nor the moon by night.
7  The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:
         he shall preserve thy soul.
8  The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
         from this time forth, and even for evermore.
