So many years ago, we witnessed Pilot’s dilemma that is just as prevalent in today’s uncertain culture. As a government official, Pilot was tempted to align with the majority opinion, rather than be a “Truth teller.” For those of us caught up in the pursuit of power, there is a worldly wisdom that aligns with the majority opinion, instead of God’s Truth. In times of trouble, the majority opinion can become the loudest voice, and lead us away from seeking the Truth.
When we value power and politics over Truth, we lose the ability to discern between right and wrong. We become disconnected from our spiritual heart, which is a cause of confusion and disorder. In challenging times, we can always choose to embrace God’s Truth. In Jesus and His Word, we have a standard for Truth, that can guide our decisions.
The world causes confusion by weaving deception with influences that involve the use of power, popular opinion, and even promises of comfort and security. God’s wisdom leads us to build a life discipline of focusing on the Truth, even when it is inconvenient, unpopular, or revealing of facts that are hard to face.
In Times of Uncertainty – Value Nothing More Than Truth
God Defines Truth
Resist the voices of power, politics, empty promises that contradict or distort the Truth.
We Can Choose to Be Truth Tellers

Worldly Lie – My faith is private, between me and God.
God’s Truth – Faith is personal, and lived out and supported in the community faith.
