The Weapon of Truth

One doesn’t need to hang around me very long before one realizes how important the truth is to me. 

Stop and think about it: if you don’t have the truth, what do you really have?

(Think about that for a second.  I’ll wait while you put names to what you have if you don’t have the truth.)

So the next time someone in Washington, DC; or Springfield or Chicago, Illinois;  or some other entity tries to obfuscate the truth and give you something else in its place, ask yourself what you’re really getting.  Someone has the truth.  Someone knows the truth.  It takes someone to speak the truth and it takes someone to hide the truth.

But make no mistake: the truth always comes out!

Romans 2:6 God “will give to each person according to what he has done.” 7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger

Do you see?  Those who uphold the truth will be honored.  Those who revere it will be rewarded.  Those who rejected it will be held accountable.  Those who hid it will be disclosed and put to shame.  Those who clung to it will be comforted and emerge victorious.  Those who cast it aside will be cast aside themselves.

John 8: 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Perhaps it is for this reason—the vast importance of the truth—that it is the first of the weapons listed for the Christian to use in standing his ground against an invisible and evil enemy.
