The Power of Words to Tell Lies or Speak Truth

Mari Pablo explains how we can find truth in a fallen world.

Unfortunately, lies are everywhere. But we as Christians don’t have to settle for this because we know that Jesus is THE truth. Because we live in a fallen world, however, this truth can be hard to find at times, especially in a society that praises social media and putting your “best self forward.” It’s up to us as sons and daughters of God to speak truth and stand up for what is good and beautiful, and to deny any lies the evil one wants us to believe.
