Deception Isn’t A Virtue

We ought to be so diligent and firm in standing by the truth, that we not only weigh our own words but also the words of all other persons, in such a manner that no deception, no lie can be concealed therein. A candid mind should never be more displeased with itself than it is, when it finds itself giving utterance to a lie, even under oppression and therefore unwillingly.  — Huldrych Zwingli

Interestingly modern politicians and the President Elect have turned deception into something they not only employ but fully admire.  This is how we know they are not Christians.
