The Real And Permanent Pandemic Is The Rejection Of Truth

Fact-checking Joe Biden leads to the undeniable conclusions that truth has no hold on him nor on many people today. And he’s supported for highest responsibility in our nation by a populace of truth averse or veracity neutral sycophants. Truth has had its tongue cut out. It’s only allowed to make indistinguishable grunts. This is the ultimate destruction of civilization, and the real and permanent pandemic. Truth matters more than anything. And it has to start with ultimate truth.
But ask anyone today “What is truth?” and you’re sure to start a contentious conversation. Try it on a university campus and you’re likely to receive laughter, scorn, and derision. The concept of truth has clearly fallen on hard times, and the consequences of rejecting it are ravaging human society. We are in a cultural battle not just for the application of truth to a political or cultural issue, but even more fundamentally to acknowledge truth itself exists.
Some might ask, why does truth matter? No one wants to be lied to, and no one wants a false response to a question that has real-world consequences. Yet many false answers instead of truth have invaded our cultural perception to the extent that the phrase “my truth” and “your truth” is commonly accepted as a correct answer. But what happens when “my truth” clashes with “your truth?”
So let’s go back to the starting point and answer the question: What is truth?
One of the most profound and eternally significant questions in the Bible was posed by an unbeliever. Pilate — the man who handed Jesus over to be crucified — turned to Jesus in His final hour, and asked, “What is truth?” It was a rhetorical question, a cynical response to what Jesus had just revealed: “I have come into the world, to testify to the truth.”
Two thousand years later, the whole world breathes Pilate’s cynicism. Some say truth is a power play, a metanarrative constructed by the elite for the purpose of controlling the ignorant masses. To some, truth is subjective, the individual world of preference and opinion. Others believe truth is a collective judgment, the product of cultural consensus, and still others flatly deny the concept of truth altogether.
