Be Courageous, Champion (of) Truth!

Joan Winifred trust Truth

It occurred to me, while thinking today, yep;)…I do think for myself, thank you.🙂 (snickering? lol:) May be, it’s a simple thought to You. 🙂 Or may be, this is an old thought or a new thought to You. Or a thought not worth thinking or definitely not a thought worth speaking…idk. Or may be ? this is a self-recycled yet unuttered/undocumented peripheral circulation/mind idea of mine floating around that has now been captured.

Hear/here goes…

Some appear to have a similar relationship with “death” as they do with “truth” aka dread of the dead aka a gripping/dictating fear of the truth…the controlling intensity of which matches their fear of death. They do anything and everything to avoid facing both!…sadly, to their own detriment!

The following readings on this topic of  Truth v. Untruth…A rivalry since Paradise Lost; Eden…”A garden [or, park] in Eden.” Heb., gan-beʽEʹdhen (“Eden,” meaning “Pleasure; Delight”); LXXBagster(Gr.), pa·raʹdei·son en E·demʹLat., pa·ra·diʹsum vo·lu·ptaʹtis, “paradise of pleasure.” [Genesis 2:8 New World Translation Revised 2013, Study Edition]

Our reality (generally speaking) now…no, actual garden of delight (with deceit and) without Truth!

At the start of mankind’s history, everything was based on truth. There was no twisting of facts, no manipulation or misrepresentation of the truth. Jehovah, the Creator, is “the God of truth.” His word is truth; he cannot lie, and he condemns lying and liars.​

“Into your hand I entrust my spirit. You have redeemed me, O Jehovah, the God of truth.*(or the faithful God)”  (Psalm 31:5)

“Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth.”

“and is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie,promised long ago.” (Titus 1:2)

That being the case, how did untruth come to be? Jesus Christ provided the authoritative answer when he told his religious opposers, who were seeking to kill him: “You are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of the lie.” (John 8:44) Jesus, of course, was referring to the event in the garden of Eden when Satan induced the first human pair to disobey God and thus fall victim to sin and death.​—Genesis 3:1-5. {whole posts and more can be devoted to these verses only.}

“That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Romans 5:12)

Jesus’ words clearly identify Satan as “the father of the lie,” the originator of lying and untruth. Satan continues to be the chief proponent of untruth and, in fact, is “misleading the entire inhabited earth.” He bears a heavy responsibility for the damage that widespread lying has done to humans today.​  Revelation 12:9, “So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.”

The fundamental rivalry between truth and untruth, started by Satan the Devil, still rages today. It permeates all levels of human society and affects every individual. The way a person lives puts him on one side of the issue or the other. Those on God’s side base their life course on the truth of God’s Word, the Bible. Anyone who does not follow the way of the truth falls, knowingly or unknowingly, into the hands of Satan because “the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.”  “We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” (1 John 5:19)

“Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it;  14 whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it.” (Matthew 7:13, 14)

“What about Today?”

Do you not agree that greed and selfish ambition are still very much the motives that impel many people to lie? Greedy business, corrupt politics, and false religion are rife with deception, falsehood, manipulation, and fraud. Why? Is it not because people are often motivated by greed and ambition to get ahead or to reach out for wealth, power, or position to which they are not entitled? A wise ruler, King Solomon of ancient Israel, warned: “He that is hastening to gain riches will not remain innocent.” (Proverbs 28:20) And the apostle Paul wrote: “The love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things.” (1 Timothy 6:10) The same could surely be said of the inordinate desire for power or position.

[aka missing music from “Moving the Wheel” above-mentioned post]

Another factor behind lying is fear​—fear of the consequences or of what others may think if the truth is told. It is only natural that people wish to be liked or accepted by others. This desire, however, can move them to distort the truth, even if only a little, in order to cover up shortcomings, to hide unflattering details, or simply to leave a good impression. Appropriately, Solomon wrote: “Trembling at men is what lays a snare, but he that is trusting in Jehovah will be protected.”​—Proverbs 29:25.
