Are you supporting truth or lies?

What is truth? Does truth exist? This is a trick question in today’s society. Truth never use to be a controversial subject because mankind as a whole accepted that absolute truth exists, it cannot change or be altered by feelings, circumstances, time, or anything else. In fact, truth as a whole was always valued as good thing and as the saying goes, ‘honesty is the best policy.’

Culture use to honor the Word of God some examples would be generalized morals such as; lying, stealing, cheating, murder, sex outside of marriage, and so on. However the culture today has completely shifted.

The thoughts of the righteous are right,

But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.

Proverbs 12:5

We are now living in a culture where we cannot trust the news, our government, or even the direction of our president. At this point the media is knowingly lying to us and justifying it as a good thing because they believe they know what is best and they want you to fear whatever it is they are selling and blindly do as they say.

We are seeing direct contradictions in the science behind many of the current ‘agendas’ being pushed– none of which are lining up with actual evidence and absolute unchanging truths that have always been the standard until recent happenings.

In order for us to know if we are supporting truth or blindly following the lies being pushed upon us, we must first know truth and what it is. The Bible gives us a set of truths that do NOT change. This is what we are to hold on to.

Evil men do not understand justice,

But those who seek the Lord understand all.

Proverbs 28:5

We have to know these truths for us to be able to spot a lie. Post modern truth or your truth, my truth, there is no real truth changes daily. Standing on this ‘truth’ will cause you to fall; it is a cracked foundation full of holes with new ones being created daily.

Loving truth is more than just loving Christ, it is loving truth as God designed it. As I mentioned before we have to know the truth of God so we do not start loving something that God hates. (If God hates it, what makes you think it will fulfill you– created by God.)

The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way,

But the folly of fools is deceit.

Proverbs 14:8

What we are currently seeing in our culture is moral anarchy. Those that are trying to redefine truth, morals, and the overall worldview do not even agree with each other. Yet, they want everyone else to buy-in to this ideology and accept it as truth–which they say does not exist. (See more holes within this ideology.)

I am asking you today, do you support truth or the lies being pushed in today’s culture?

He who speaks truth declares righteousness,

But a false witness, deceit.

Proverbs 12:17

Lying to anyone about anything is wrong and can do some serious damage emotionally, mentally, and sometimes even physically. Intentionally lying to people to get your way, to misconstrue factual information, or push a particular ideology is abuse. Supporting lies that have NO factual basis and even has evidence to the contrary of what you are supporting is purposely misguiding people into chaos, hurt, trauma, and more.

I, myself will not lie because someone cannot handle the truth. It is not and will never be considered loving to lie.
