Minister’s Message

 Dear Friends

I have just returned from a teaching session which suggests we are living in a Post Truth Society, a society where the truth does not matter. One quote that the speaker used that got to me was one attributed to Sir Winston Churchill. “A lie travels half way round the world while the truth is still tying its laces.” Over the Brexit campaign we were told that if we left the E.U. then the billions of pounds we would save would go the NHS. After the referendum, from the same people, we are told that it would not happen. They knew that they had told a lie, to get people to vote the way that  they wanted people to,  but that did not matter. We see this sort of thing happening in all areas of political and public life.  American newspapers now employ fact finders, whose job is to find out if an article is the truth or if it is false news. The internet bombards us with false news daily and this is having a dangerous effect on our society as our opinions and actions are shaped by lies and not the truth. Jesus says this about lies in John chapter eight and verse forty four

 “for he (the devil) is a liar and the father of lies.”

Truth is at the very centre of the Christian Faith, Jesus makes the claim that he is the truth, in John chapter fourteen and verse 6 we read ;

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

For committed Christians, once we have accepted that this is true, then our whole lives change, we are set free by the truth. Jesus tells us this in John Chapter Eight and verse thirty two ;

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’”

 We are not only set free we must now live in the truth, set our standards and form our opinions by what is truthful. We have a responsibility to search for the truth. This is not easy in today’s fast communicating world, we need to take time to think things through, we need to ask questions, talk with other people, we need to pray before believing what we see, read or hear is the truth.

May God Bless you all

Arthur & Kathleen
