You can’t have a good nation without truth. You can’t have justice without truth. You can’t have a good marriage without truth. You can’t have a good family without truth. Truth is absolutely essential and has been in this nation for three hundred years.
But no longer.
I’ve mentioned that well-known phrase, “the truth will set you free.” But let me give you the context of that phrase. In John 8:31-32, Jesus says, “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (emphasis mine).
Truth is the path to freedom. But this doesn’t apply to everyone’s “truth.” It applies only to God’s truth. Just as Satan is the father of lies, God is the Father of truth. All truth is God’s truth. And the Bible is revealed truth. That’s why the Pilgrims and the Founding Fathers built the foundations of this nation on the Bible.
