In our world, cultivating discernment is a necessary antidote to deception. (John Stonestreet, columnist)
Stonestreet continues, “Too often, we are oblivious to the cultural currents around us. As the old Chinese proverb goes, ‘If you want to know what water is, don’t ask the fish.’” When you’re in the midst of confusing ideas, it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish the true from the false. To avoid deception, determine truth and reality and make them your starting point.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life”. . . Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth (John 14:6; 17:17).
