We writers have a tremendous responsibility to write the truth. Look at what has happened to our country because the media, as a group, has refused to write and speak the truth. This failure to write and speak the truth has brought our great country to the brink of tyranny.
Truth is what sets us free (John 8:32), and if we don’t write the truth, our readers will remain in bondage.
But to write the truth, we must first know the truth. The truth is found in God’s Holy Word. The writer must feed on His Holy Word in order to discern truth from error.
A banker friend of mine once told me that when bank tellers are trained, they never handle counterfeit money. They handle only real money, and they handle it so well that when a counterfeit bill passes through their hands, they instantly recognize it.
We should know the Word of God (Truth) so well that when a lie crosses our path, we will instantly recognize it.
We must know the Truth in order to write the truth.
