A Question of Truth…


Do we refuse to love the truth?

Do we find convenience in untruths, lies, falsehoods?

Are our opinions and prejudices more important than truth?

Are we permitted to ignore the truth if it’s more convenient to our viewpoint to do so?

Are we permitted to “stretch” the truth to make a point?

Are we willing to supress or deny the truth to promote a desired agenda?

Who is the father of lies?

What is the destiny of liars?

Just a few very important questions we should consider. But are we honest enough with ourselves to come up with truthful answers?

  1. Not to muddy the waters, but is this a good time to mention that there’s a difference between “truth” and “facts?” Or to quote Professor Henry Jones Jr. (Harrison Ford) from the film “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), “Archaeology is the search for fact… not truth. If it’s truth you’re looking for, Dr. Tyree’s philosophy class is right down the hall. “

  2. I have heard that both the Hebrew and Greek words for truth also mean “reality” – relating to what is actually real. No room for relativism.
