Because our society has rejected God and His holy inspired Word as the standard for truth, we have lost our reference point for reality.
Our culture often defines truth based on public opinion polls. We live in a media culture of sizzle and hype which influences public thinking. Advertisers and spin-doctors are constantly at work to influence our thinking. Educational institutions promote diversified views at the expense of truth. Even many journalists are no longer satisfied with reporting the facts. Instead, they slant and often invent the news to fit their own interpretation and ambitions.
This is the nature of the world system controlled by Satan, who is the father of lies (John 8:44). These masters of deception, distortion, and manipulation take truth out of context or give only half-truths. Without His truth, we are left to grope about. Even many Christians have bought into these lies. But God's truth is a light that shows us the difference between falsehood and truth, and frees us to do what is right and good.
Every day, we make choices about what we want to do or perceive to be true. Only God can free us from the deceptions and distortions of the world's system. He has given us the Bible as a handbook for identifying truth, and His Spirit, the Counselor of Truth, within us as our Guide.
Like a powerful floodlight, God's truth will expose the foolishness and destructiveness of every myth promoted by the world. God is the only unchanging source of truth.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
How much have you been affected by the myths and half-truths of society and popular culture? What does your checkbook show? What about your preferred entertainment choices? Your language? Your clothes? Your integrity in business dealings? Do all these things demonstrate that you are listening to God's truth or listening to the world?

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
