In this social media/personal opinion driven culture we are in desperate need of truth. (Especially during election years.)
“What is truth?”, Pilate asked Jesus.
The great theologian, Foghorn Leghorn, used to say, “It’s more confusing than a termite in a yo-yo – which way is up?”
Satan is a smooth operator. He usually includes a nugget of truth in his lies. But, a half truth is still a whole lie.
Falling for slick rhetoric is nothing new.
Paul warned the Ephesian believers to study the scriptures so they could safely discern what was true from what wasn’t. As a result, he said,…
“We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.” (4:14)
Don’t be deceived or beguiled into believing what someone espouses just because it sounds convincing. Weigh everything against scripture.
What is truth? The Bible tells us…
“…the truth is in Jesus.” (Eph. 4:21)
“Your word is truth.” (John 17:17)
“The sum of your word is truth.” (Ps. 119:160)
“I am the…Truth.” (Jesus Christ: John 14:6)
