The Truth

It’s been a long standing mark of moral character in American culture to tell the truth. So ingrained is this standard that our courts of law require a witness to take an oath: “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?” But something has happened. Truth telling, although maintained as a standard, is out of favor right now.

The American public has become cynical about the truth, thinking of all the lying politicians and worse, a court system where the truth is not honored. Now, we watch with horror as the obviously guilty are tried and turned loose. What’s the problem?

The problem is that we’ve lost our fear and reverence for God.

When I was a boy growing up, I honored and feared my father. That fact may send a couple of clinical psychologists into a fit of outrage, but nonetheless, it’s true. And because of this I dare not lie. When he asked for the truth, I gave it to him. To do otherwise, and be found out, meant a good, old fashion lickin’.

Well, what have people got to fear today? They have discovered that lying is a new art form. And…you might be interested to know that among Muslims, lying is a virtue when done in the cause of Allah.

Jesus taught something entirely different. He said, “I am the truth…you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free…the Word is truth” (John 8.32; 14.6; 17.17). Okay, so what are we to do?

According to Jesus, truth telling is part and parcel to being a God-fearing Christian.

The truth cannot be compromised. If it is then the whole structure of our society will be compromised, and everything will come tumbling down. Well…what are we seeing? Are we not right now in the midst of collapse?

Get Jesus…get the truth…and speak and live His truth bravely.
