Have you noticed that when you turn on the TV or look at a newspaper you are bombarded with information? How do you look at the information presented to you? Do you ask yourself “Do they know what they are talking about?”, or do you listen and believe everything you hear or read? I have come to the conclusion that whether it is the news, TV programs or the newspapers, if you don’t filter the information given to you through something that you trust you won’t know what to believe. It is sad to say that our world has become a propaganda machine just like what we used to call the old Soviet Union. I can remember my folks saying that all they ever said was propaganda. I didn’t understand what propaganda was at the time but I knew it wasn’t good.
I have chosen the Bible, the inerrant Word of God as my filter because I believe that it is the absolute truth. It has come under great assault in recent days through movies and different organizations. I can’t tell you the number of emails I have received with pictures and stories of people trying to undermine and rid the world of God’s Word and its truth. It says in that truthful word that this will happen in the last days. In 1 John 2:18 it says, “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”
“I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
Believers, who have chosen to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, are called to take a stand on truth and to live their lives in integrity. Integrity means sincerity of heart, completeness, uprightness, truthfulness or simplicity. You live your life in honesty and truthfulness and you expect others to do the same. Of course that is too often not the case in business matters or even family matters. Where should integrity have its greatest value, in the home! We hear so much about the break down of the home unit and how relationships are so strained and fragmented. It is so true and part of the reason is the absence of integrity, honesty and especially love. In the Word Jesus said in Matthew 22:37-39,“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
We must decide whether we will love the Lord our God and love our neighbor as ourselves. If we choose to do so then we will not tell lies and be people who lack integrity. We will follow the Word of God which is the absolute truth and we will filter everything we see and hear through the Word to see whether it is truth or lies. We have these choices daily. Will you stand and be counted as a child of God or walk in the ways of the world which lead to death?
Here is an example of a new card we are giving to help people make a choice to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord! We are so excited that we also have this card in English and Spanish.

God’s Gift to You

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 5:8
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 10:9
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Prayer for Salvation:
Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner. I know that Jesus is Your Son, and that He died on the cross and was raised from the dead. I know I need forgiveness for my sin. I am willing to turn from my sins and receive Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
