I have seen an eclipsed moon, a blood moon, a super moon, and a blue moon. But never once have I suspected that perhaps the moon was not there! There is a conspiracy theory saying not only that the moon landing was a hoax, but that the moon no longer exists. What we are seeing is just a hologram! It is all a cover-up, hiding the awful truth that either the moon was destroyed or colonized by aliens!
Today’s verse was the Lord’s response to Pilate’s questions. Jesus not only testifies to truth but He tells us that He IS truth (John 14:6). The truth of Jesus is in stark contrast to the lies purported by the Father of lies, who has so deluded the world (John 8:44). It is easy enough to distinguish the absence of truth in most of these conspiracy theories. But when it comes to the spiritual realm, believers are to protect themselves by a belt of truth (Eph. 6:14). Jesus teaches us truth through His Word (John 17:17 ) and through His Spirit who guides us into all truth (John 16:13).
I want to stand on the side of truth and that can only happen as I listen to Him! There are plenty of dissenting voices clamoring for my attention. But if those voices deviate in any way from what the Lord has clearly stated, then I am not to listen. Truth is not subjectively discovered. It is an absolute in a Person. I dare not trust the changing ideas of truth found elsewhere. His truth stands forever and I want to forever stand on the side of truth!
Thank you Lord, that You are truth.
