Apart from God you cannot have absolute truth. Our culture today professes that truth is relative to each persons individual feelings. In this worldview it is impossible to speak truth to your neighbor. The culture today says don’t judge. It is impossible to judge correctly without truth and It impossible to have justice or peace without truth.
Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life” and that His Word is truth. It’s no surprise for me to see the destruction, chaos, violence and disorder our nation is suffering because we have rejected God.
My hope is that our nation as a whole repents and that we can elect God fearing leaders, otherwise we will fall. The god hating leaders will ultimately appeal to their truth as the standard and it will only stand to benefit themselves; not others. If you don’t think this is so, you’re not paying attention.
“These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbor; Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace; Let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor; And do not love a false oath. For all these are things that I hate,’ Says the Lord.”” Zechariah 8:16-17 NKJV
