It hurled truth to the ground, Daniel 8.12

“The army was given over, along with the daily sacrifice, in the course of his sinful rebellion. It hurled truth to the ground and enjoyed success.”

Daniel 8.12

Daniel prophesied of the last days, when the temple worship would be desecrated. The verb “hurl” here in context connotes violence and force. At times, sin gains the upper hand.

How is truth cast down today? Am I guilty of doing so? Or, am I a witness to it? Does seeing truth defeated in a situation discourage or dismay me?
