THE TRUTH BE TOLD!
"When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God." Acts 7:54, 55
IN JESUS TODAY!
The truth be told, telling the truth can hurt, it may hurt the ears of those that hear it, and it may cause the hurt of those that tell the truth. Steven of course was stoned to death for telling the truths of God, truths that others didn't want to hear and sought to stop him from telling. Because they couldn't stop him by debating they decided in their anger to kill him. Mel Brooks, comedian, actor, and film maker once said, "Bad taste is simply telling the truth before it should be said." I'm supposing that he was referring to the timing of telling the truth.
TELLING THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS RIGHT…
Telling the truth is always the right thing and a word spoken at the right time gives us great advantage.
President Harry Truman didn't seem to care about the timing, but still told the truth at any cost, he said,
"I never give them Hell, I just tell truth and they think it's Hell."
Gerald Ford said after the Nixon scandal,
"Truth is the glue that holds Governments together." and,
Theodore Roosevelt said of truth,
"The truth is found when men are free to pursue it."
The truth is, the truth will sometimes make others angry, but the truth sets us free!
"And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32 "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36
The truth is, the truth is freedom for all that live by it!
TELLING THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS RIGHT!
