What is Truth and Who Can We Trust? – Living Proverbs 31
Have you ever wondered What is Truth? Who do I believe? Whose word can I trust?
Do you ever feel totally overwhelmed? The news, your friends, the internet, social media, all screaming “facts” at you and they don’t connect.
I love reading conspiracy theories. As a kid I didn’t realize that’s what they really were called, I just enjoyed reading other people’s ideas of what could’ve happened.
With the age of internet you can find conspiracy theories everywhere, and they are often directly against what the media is telling us. As a result of reading theories and learning what other’s think about different circumstances and events, I’ve come to the following conclusions:
- Money speaks
- Every theory has an ounce of truth
- People cannot be totally trusted
No wonder people are confused. No wonder we don’t know who to trust. No wonder this world is just one messed up place.
What is Truth and Who Can We Trust?
Tweet this! >>> In a World gone crazy, who can we really trust?
Let’s start by looking at those we cannot trust.
Politicians make big promises but rarely follow through all the way. They may have a hundred excuses for why their plan failed, but ultimately their plan failed. We cannot put our hope and trust in politicians.
The pharmaceutical industry uses science and experiments to find “cures”. “Cures” which often create new illnesses and diseases, creating the need for more “cures”. This keeps patients coming back for more and more drugs, often creating addictions. We cannot put our hope and trust in the cures from pharmaceutical industry.
Drs are there to diagnose and treat illnesses. But they are only human and there are so many illnesses that they cannot possibly always be right. They can only go off of what you are saying and what scientific technology is telling them. Thus Drs do make mistakes, but that’s what they have liability ins. for right? We cannot trust a Dr to always be correct in his assessment of our illnesses.
Farmers feed the world, but they also need to feed themselves and their families. Not to mention everything else they want to do. Thus they often take the easiest, cheapest route for growing food and it’s not always the best for our bodies. We cannot trust farmers to really care about the people who eat their crops.
Food corporations have one goal: to meet and supply the demands of consumers. They want to do this in the way that best lines their pockets, regardless of how it can affect our health. We cannot trust food companies to really tell us the truth about their foods.
Ouch! Ultimately it’s every man for himself out here with an exception of a few people who have proven themselves trustworthy to us.
So What Is Truth? Is there Anyone we can REALLY trust?
Revelation 1:8 – I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Ah yes. God. He is the same, never-changing, the great I am, who never goes back on his word. We can trust him!
The promises of God are sure and never-changing.
Psalms 84:11 – For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
2 Peter 1:4 – Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
2 Corinthians 6 :17-18 – Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
In God we are promised everything we need. Not everything we want, or even everything we think we need, but everything we need. He has promised to never leave or forsake us and he sees even the little sparrows that fall.
The next time you are online and the barrage of opinions, hate, lies, and everything else mankind is capable of, begins to bring you down, remember this:
God is God, and God is still in control.
If we can simply trust that he will work things out for the good (spiritual, not physical) of all who love him, things will suddenly become a simpler. No more trusting on human’s who are failure prone, but trusting in a God who holds us all in the palm of his hand!
So what is truth? I will leave you with this:
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus! My Jesus, and hopefully yours too, HE is the truth!
