Christian Foundations - Truth
Bible Facts Newspaper Article (Ian C. Kurylyk)
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD” (Amos 8:11).
We live in an age of information and information technology, but of absence of truth. Kevin Trudeau in his book, Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About claims that truth in the area of human health has become a great casualty for the sake of money. I cannot agree with everything he writes, but his warnings about suppression of the truth should alarm us all. Governments also frequently broadcast information which time proves to be false.
Bill Cooper in his book After the Flood shows how facts of ancient history are suppressed simply because they corroborate Biblical explanations of the origin of the earth. Marvin Lubenow exposes distortions and falsehoods popularized in anthropology in the book Bones of Contention. He shows that once the lies and propaganda are removed, the human fossil record agrees wonderfully with the Bible account of human history. Other areas of science (such as genetics) have been shown to be corrupted by blatant lies in an effort to promote the theory of evolution at any cost. There are good creation science sources available today with competent, reputable scientists who are willing to expose lies in science. We live in a day when truth is omitted, distorted, denied and outlawed.
We are being bombarded by new ideas in morality, lifestyle, divinity, and happiness. We receive so much information, but what can be trusted as truth? John wrote, “Thy word is truth” in John 17:17. The Bible call itself the Word of Truth. Its prime focus is the One who personified truth, God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). When He came into the world He told the truth about mankind by showing what a terrible penalty must be paid for our sins. This sacrifice He made also declared the truth of God’s great love in offering us salvation at such a cost.
