This is a time in the history of the United States where truth is taking a beating. Truth doesn't seem to matter at all; truth has become relative rather than absolute. Even Christians try to twist truth to make it fit a certain philosophy whether conservative, liberal, or progressive; Truth is determined by the person who is saying whatever. We are even told to not believe truth even when we see and hear it.
But Truth Matters
The truth can be a funny thing. While not always valued by others, it is most certainly favored by God and our hopes of ensuring wholesome relationships. We may think we are clever enough to fool other people, God, or even ourselves, but little do we know of the ultimate consequences of our attempts to deceive reality. However painful or awkward the truth may be, it is “truly” our only opportunity to create harmony and receive God’s grace. The Bible reminds us of the power of truth quite frequently and we’d be wise to follow its advice. These Bible verses about the power of truth are just what I needed today.
Here are 20 brilliant Bible verses about the power of truth from God Updates. (Emphasis mine)
