The Christian faith is all about truth.
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.
John 16:13 – Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come
John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
So how is it then that Christians are still defending Donald Trump in spite of the fact that he now obviously the greatest liar that has ever filled the president’s office?
Lets accept that we were duped when he said he would cease wars around the world. He is actively supporting military action in several countries which is directly resulting in the death of civilians, he is supporting terrorists who are killing Christians, he has bombed Syria, he is demanding more spending on the military and has stirred up animosity with North Korea.
But of all things Donald Trump has done an about turn on, the renewed effort to terminate Wikileaks, is no doubt one of his greatest evils. Here is an organisation that has repeatedly exposed the evil intent of wicked people and governments around the world, an organisation that has a history of 100% honesty and accuracy in its reporting and which is apparently now a threat to the United States??? The United States used to stand for truth and justice. It was a country that other nations admired and respected. Now it is threatened by truth?
The same intelligence organisations that are so intent on destroying Wikileaks have been caught selling weapons to terrorists, supplying drugs into the USA, overthrown numerous countries, killed countless people, subverted justice and truth, corrupted the media and lied to Congress and the public at almost every opportunity. How do Christians simply accept their attempts to suppress the truth? Where is the Christian outcry and demand for justice in this instance?
Christianity is going to be judged in the future, this is very clear from the scriptures. What is not so clear is why we fall short and come into judgement. I have no doubt that choosing to no longer stand up for righteousness, for justice and for truth will contribute to the coming judgement and falling away.
Wikileaks is one of the very few organisations that does not supply false NWO misinformation to corrupt and mislead society and Christians should be praying and fighting to keep this information source available. Ordinary people who become aware of crime, deception, lies, abuse and injustice use this unique outlet to expose evil without being murdered, fired from their employment, ostracized or ridiculed. Christians should recognize this avenue of justice and get their support behind it.
John the Baptist criticized the evil leaders of the day and paid for it with his life. Jesus opposed the evil rulers in his day and paid with his life. History is full of Christians who have opposed evil authorities at great cost. Is there an American pastor or church leader that could stand up for truth this weekend? Perhaps donate the week’s taking to supporting truth? Is there any such church leader in the USA?
I doubt it. But individual Christians need to stand up for truth and defend it. At the very least we can pray for truth to prevail and overcome the evil of this age. After all, faith without works is dead. If we don’t, truth will be lost and next time it may be our truth that is lost.
