Who Gives Kudos:



The Real Truth

 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 NKJV

“The Real Truth” was the headline in one of the UKs tabloid ‘papers’. I am very reluctant to give this business the tag of being a ‘news’paper, because it revolves around its own definition of ‘truth’. This came to the public attention when it splashed the headline ‘The Truth’ when it reported on a crush which resulted in the deaths of 96 souls and hundreds of injuries at a football match in 1989. It took them until 2012 to respond to public pressure, and a tribunal, to use the headline ‘The Real Truth’. Not an apology, just a new ‘truth’.

The truth is a moving target in today’s society, and very difficult to nail down.That’s because we have become used to hearing the media and the PC brigade saying things like, ‘truth is comparative and relevant’, or ‘that may be your truth, but its not mine, or even ‘there is no such thing as absolute truth’.

It may come as a shock to the tabloid press, but they do not have a monopoly on the truth. Truth cannot be changed, and it is not subjective, or a matter of some academic’s opinion. Truth is embodied in the life of Jesus Christ. He is the ultimate and final truth, and when we stand before Him, as we all will someday, it will be no good arguing over the definition of the word. The verse says it all. If you want to know the truth, and how to live in the shadow of the truth, read God’s Word and follow in His shadow. There is no shortcut to truth, and part of our media hasn’t quite grasped that yet, but then that particular ‘press comic’ wouldn’t know truth if it jumped up and bit them!

PS.. I have heard from some who read this particular ‘rag’ that they buy it for the crossword or the sports reports. I hope we are not so shallow as Christians. Any paper that also insists on publishing a ‘Page Three’, does not deserve any decent person’s custom. Just saying!
