I am a firm believer in the Bible as God’s revelation to man to show us how we should live. The Bible speaks to every area of life; Parenting, Marriage, Business principles, etc. and when we violate one of those principles; there are consequences. But many people reject God’s truth to accept what the majority promotes. Culture wants to legalize their sinful desires; abortion, same-sex marriage; dignity in death; and so on. Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,” Verse 25 “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.
People don`t want to accept the truth, unless it agrees with their idea of truth.
The truth seems to be elusive, especially in the arena of politics and media. Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives; WHO is telling the truth? I am confused. How can “fake” news be news? To be true news it must be based on factual information; no slant; no spin. Case in point, the Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearing. Many accusations but none were based on truth. After investigating, there was no truth to the accusations.
Telling the truth sometimes makes us uncomfortable. Never ask a question that you are not ready to accept the truth! I love the Geico Commercial about Abraham Lincoln trying to speak the truth. Speaking the truth is not always easy to speak but it is the best policy.
“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Mark Twain
