Upholding Truth

No one ever claims to be the “false” leader. Rather, everyone wants to be the “true” leader, get the “real” thing, or be the “authentic” version. Tourists hope to try “genuine” New York pizza. Customers place higher value on “made by hand” and want to buy the “original” version. Book collectors want the “first” edition, and unabridged versions. Emphasis is placed on objects “touched by [famous person]’s own hand.”

All this weight on being genuine illustrates how much we as humans value truth, which should not be a surprise. God loves the truth; Satan is the father of lies. We want to be true even if we are false because we are made in the image of God.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'”

John 14:6
