What if everyone was hearing the truth?

Dwight A. George - Frisco

Few will argue with columnist Rich Mayfield’s endorsement of telling the truth (SDN, Nov. 1).

Some, myself included, will question his proposition that telling the truth would necessarily bring economic ruin.

The point that deserves comment, however, is this: Telling the truth is only half of the problem. The fact is: Many people do not want to hear the truth.

Years ago someone predicted, “A time is coming when people will no longer listen to right teaching.

“They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever they want to hear. They will reject the truth and follow strange myths.”

Though a rare breed, some preachers still teach the truth but few folks fill up their pews. 

Why, because the truth often hurts before it heals. Many people simply refuse to take the medicine that’s good for them.
