Only of God’s Bible can it be said: “The entirety of Your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160 NKJV). Truth matters to God. “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth” (Psalm 145:18 NKJV). The only worship that brings people close to God is according to truth. That’s why God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4 NKJV). On the Day of Judgment, God will see to it “that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:12 NKJV). Without truth, we become unrighteous in our lives. People whose job is to manufacture make-believe fantasies, fake news and false science, will lead us away from the truth. “Buy the truth, and do not sell it” (Proverbs 23:23 NKJV).
