The Gospel Truth

How difficult is it to tell the truth no matter what? To family? At work? To members of this group? To God? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 624).

The hard truth is that telling the truth is not always the most helpful thing.  Actual human behavior frequently places helpfulness above truthfulness.  This is because of the limited nature of our understanding.  We know that truth can be phantasmagorias of our perception, whereas helpfulness (or it’s opposite, hurtfulness) can be immediate, practical, and all too real.  Thus we look to ultimate impact rather than moral legalisms.  That may all sound a bit scary, but it is (take my word for it) the Gospel truth.
