Truth in a World of Lies

Today, a topical scripture medley on the subject of truth. These are presented in the approximate order they occur at, but not every entry there is included here. I appreciated that the search was intuitive, and in one verse the word truth wasn’t used but rather certainty. I also found it interesting how many instances of the word truth occur in the writings of the apostle John, in both his gospel and his letters. At the end of today’s scriptures there is an invitation to read a post from last summer in which we looked at Ahab and the prophet Micaiah. If you missed it, or can’t remember it, consider reading it again. Finally, a reminder to many of you that scripture verses here are always in green because the Word of God is life!
