Truth matters. How we see others, or ideas, or issues matters. How we speak or don’t speak about our neighbors matters for so many reasons. But perhaps most importantly it matters because we Christians need to be the most believable people on the face of the earth. We proclaim the most important truth in all the world – that there is salvation in Jesus and Jesus alone. If we bear false witness or lie even about the smallest things, why would people believe us when we invite them into eternity through faith in Jesus?
