Truth Decay

by David Jeremiah

For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice. John 18:37

Winston Churchill once quipped, “Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.” That’s certainly true as it relates to the One who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Jesus came to tell us the truth, but more than that—He is the truth! We can place our full faith and confidence in Him.

Some years ago Norman Geisler and Frank Turek wrote a book entitled I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, in which they discussed the concept of truth: Truth is discovered, not invented. It is transcultural, true for everyone, everywhere, and all the time.

Truth is unchanging; it’s immune from shifting human opinions. Truth is absolute, for it comes from an absolutely supreme Creator-God.1
This world has a bad case of truth decay. But we hold the absolute Truth within us through the presence of Jesus, who came to sanctify us by His truth. His word, His truth—purifies and cleanses us—preventing spiritual truth decay (John 17:17).
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
Winston Churchill.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
