Truth vs. Feelings

Play Audio

How important is the truth today?  From false stories that are just to stir up emotions and people being afraid of the backlash if they tell the truth, it can sometimes appear as though how a person feels is more important than giving the truth.  Our culture seems to promote a rule of “thou shall not offend” but what happens if the truth is offensive?  How should Christians respond to such a culture?


When Christ spoke, His words always created a reaction amongst His listeners, but their reaction never once changed what Christ came to say.  Even as the reactions turned violent, Jesus never changed His message.  For Jesus cares about the truth, not how we feel about it.


Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. 

No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
