Be A Secret Service Agent
STUDY THE TRUTH
At the time of the Civil War it was estimated that one-third of all U. S. currency in circulation was counterfeit. There were 1,600 state banks printing their own paper notes, each with a different design. It became impossible to tell the thousands of counterfeits from the thousands of genuine notes. Adopting a national currency in 1863 failed to solve the problem as it became counterfeited extensively. On July 5, 1865, the Secret Service was established to control counterfeiting.
The “truth environment” today is much like the currency environment in 1865. There are thousands of versions of “the truth” circulating in our world and the Christian has the daunting task of separating the counterfeits from the genuine. Fortunately, we have our own version of the Secret Service—the Word of God. Instead of trying to learn how to identify the counterfeits, the best thing to do is to study the real thing. When’s the last time you were fooled by a fake spouse, child, or best friend? Intimacy is the key.
