Think About It

What’s True…What’s Not
by Pastor B.J. Knefley

In our world today it seems difficult to sort out what is true and what is not. In an age of relativism, where true is only what you believe it to be, and there can be so many “truths” that it is hard to sort out or make sense of anything. In our culture, we hear things like, freedom, individualism, personal rights, personal ideals, entitlement, and a slew of other self-actualizing statements. Is there any room for absolutes in an age of relativism?

I believe that everyone believes in something. Much like having no decision is still a decision, believing in nothing is still a belief. Therefore, for those that say they do not believe in God, although that may be true, they still have a belief system. And if we are honest we would also understand and realize that whatever our belief system is, it will have a direct bearing upon our decisions and the way we ultimately live our life. Our actions reflect our beliefs. As the old saying goes, what we live with we learn, what we learn we practice, and what we practice we become.

Often what we believe is a matter of convenience rather than conviction. We believe certain things not because we are convinced that they are true, but because it fits in with our desires. The choices we make then are guided not by any standard of conviction, but rather a standard that fits my wants. What is interesting about this is that because there is no standard by which we base our actions, we can flip from one thing to another without even a second thought. Yet, consider Paul’s statement in Romans 1:19-20 For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts. 

From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God, (NLT). From this it clearly shows that truth can be known just by going outside and taking a good look around. Yet we choose to ignore it so we can follow our own idealistic path. 

How can we be so intelligent and foolish at once? 

Think about it.

It's the age of Trump, and as his attorney said, "The truth is not the truth."

4,000 lies in 24 months and growing.

That's the lesson for today's youth. We are being taught the truth doesn't matter any more. As a minister that must be difficult to come to grips with.

And evangelicals love this guy?
