Truth Tellers

text size A A A

“And I tell you that on the Judgment Day people will be responsible for every careless thing they have said.” (Matthew 12:36) I wonder if political campaign rhetoric is considered “careless”. Why not?

We’ve come to rely on fact-checkers to determine if those who hold the highest positions in the land are telling us the truth. Then we suspect that the fact-checkers aren’t reliable enough to tell the truth. A long campaign season can get you entranced, jaded, or disheartened. I lean towards the last one.

We’re grown-ups and can understand tough stuff. We’re taxpayers paying for this government monstrosity. Why can’t our political leaders honestly tell us the cost of our debt? No wonder there’s so much uncertainty amongst us. No one knows what to believe or whom to believe. We need the truth. We always have needed it and God knows that it’s the only way we’ll ever be free. For the God-honoring among us, knowing God’s truth and telling the truth go together. So what’s missing in today’s political arena? Perhaps it’s God.

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." John 8:32
