1 John 2:21 Do you think I am writing this letter because you don’t know the truth? No, I am writing because you do know the truth. And you know that no lie comes from the truth.
A Crazy Notion

So, how much of the way that you see the world is based on fact – objective truth if you will – and how much is based on facts that have been digested, massaged and regurgitated by spin merchants? Well?
Apparently, 42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
It’s amazing the things we accept as truth – fact or fiction. We don’t really make much of a distinction anymore, as long as it’s entertaining … like the movie a few years back called The Da Vinci Code, a great yarn – very entertaining – but as the author himself said in the face of an avalanche of criticism from Christians around the world, “People, it’s fiction.”
So we go along through life with this mish-mash of entertainment and news and spin … and somehow out of that, without thinking about it, we fabricate something that we call “the truth.” It’s scary when you think about it.
But let me ask you, right at that moment when you breathe your last breath, right in that moment, will your truth actually help you? When you get to the end, what truth will you wish that you’d had in your heart all along?
Maybe now is a good time to think about that.
1 John 2:21Do you think I am writing this letter because you don’t know the truth? No, I am writing because you do know the truth. And you know that no lie comes from the truth.
This crazy notion that your truth is your truth, my truth is my truth, whatever works for you … is just that – a crazy notion.
Truth is truth. And the truth is that if you believe in Jesus, you will spend eternity in the Presence of God. And if you don’t, you won’t.
That’s the truth.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
