A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good just because it’s accepted by the majority. (Booker T. Washington, 19th-20th century educator)

We are living in an upside-down world today where Washington’s comment may be truer than ever. Whether it’s politics, advertising, literature, or entertainment, we’re faced with untruths and deception often in the name of trying to do good. In other words, the ends justify the means. But such behavior leads only to more of the same. Let’s determine what’s true and firmly defend it!

Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth (2 Timothy 2:25).
