TRUTH has been under attack since we broke from God in the Garden. But we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Christians everywhere on planet earth need to brace themselves for an ASSAULT ON TRUTH the likes of which the digitized, modern world has not yet seen.
Today’s mind-numbing volume of information coursing through the world’s bloodstream allows people to find a version of truth that meets their GODLESS perspective.
The ability to do that has produced our POST-TRUTH world where facts are subordinated to “snippets of information” shaped into what people want to be true. These “new-world truth tellers” then weaponize it to manipulate the vulnerable masses.
It’s no wonder that Christians living in a POST-TRUTH world have trouble following a God who declares to be THE WAY…THE TRUTH…AND THE LIFE.
Believers are commanded to seek and proclaim the truth inside and outside the church—GOD’S TRUTH—that can only be found in his Word of life.
We need to speak the “truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15); and we need to expose “unfruitful works of darkness” (Ephesians 5:11-12).
The Post-Truth era may trouble us, but it does not faze a God who always tells the truth (Hebrews 6:18).
And it should NOT trouble us. In fact, Christians should view the Post-Truth era as an opportunity to see the magnificence of Christ manifest in lighting the lamps of peace.
The church is the hope of the world. Not a hope. THE hope. It should not reflect culture in its mirror. It should reflect Christ.
If you want to know when you have personally crossed into the danger zone on truth, pay attention to signs that you are shutting out God’s truth to protect your view of reality.
I ask God to help me to always know, believe, and share HIS TRUTH.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Are you ready to tell the truth, God’s truth, in the days ahead?
“God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.” Hebrews 6:18
