Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: T R U T H

He who has refused to acknowledge the truth in life
will be forced to confront it in death.

Holy Scripture is very clear that each one of us is obligated to search for the truth and to abide by it. I am appalled at the number of people who completely ignore these dire warnings from the Bible, or are ignorant of the fact that they are there.

Many non-Catholics repeat outright lies about the Catholic Church and take what they have heard or have been taught as truth, without bothering to find out if these things are true or not. When they do this, not only are they calumnizing the Catholic Church, but they are calumnizing its founder, Jesus Christ, Himself.

After reading this article, not one person can ever again
plead innocence (or ignorance)
of what Scripture has to say about spreading the truth,
and about not spreading malicious lies.


Anyone who professes to follow Holy Scripture to the letter, must follow ALL of what it says. They cannot keep the parts they like and reject what they do not like.

Here are some verses which obligate
each and every one of us to search for the truth:

“This is good and agreeable in the sight of GOD our Savior, who wishes ALL MEN TO BE SAVED AND TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.” 1Tim 2:4

“Sanctify them in the truth. Thy Word is truth.” John 17:17

“FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND WICKEDNESS OF THOSE MEN WHO IN WICKEDNESS HOLD BACK THE TRUTH OF GOD.” ROMANS 1:18

(That verse by itself should deter any GOD loving person
from spreading malicious lies… but there is much more to come.)

“BUT WRATH AND INDIGNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE CONTENTIOUS, AND WHO DO NOT SUBMIT TO THE TRUTH BUT ASSENT TO INIQUITY.” ROMANS 2:8

“…HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, AND HAS NOT STOOD IN THE TRUTH BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHEN HE TELLS A LIE HE SPEAKS FROM HIS VERY NATURE, FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES.” JOHN 8:44

(That verse settles it. Lying comes from Satan.
The truth comes from GOD.)

“BUT AS FOR THE COWARDLY AND UNBELIEVING, AND ABOMINABLE AND MURDERERS, AND FORNICATORS AND SORCERERS, AND IDOLATERS AND ALL LIARS, THEIR PORTION SHALL BE IN THE POOL THAT BURNS WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.” REV 21:8

(Pretty strong words for those who propagate lies.)

“…AND THERE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO IT ANYTHING DEFILED, NOR HE WHO PRACTICES ABOMINATION AND FALSEHOOD, BUT THOSE ONLY WHO ARE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE OF THE LAMB.” REV 21:27

(Let all who have eyes to see, see, and ears to hear, hear.)

“OUTSIDE ARE THE DOGS, AND THE SORCERERS, AND THE FORNICATORS, AND THE MURDERERS, AND THE IDOLATERS, AND EVERYONE WHO LOVES AND PRACTICES FALSEHOOD.” Rev 22:15

(Verse after verse about what will happen to liars.)

“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord.” Prov 12:22

“A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaks lies shall not escape.” Prov 19:5

“The lip of truth shall be steadfast forever; but he that is a hasty witness frames a lying tongue.” Prov 12:19

“He that speaks that which he knows, shows forth justice; but he that lies, is a deceitful witness.” Prov 12:17

“Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh His soul detesteth: haughty eyes, A LYING TONGUE, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A DECEITFUL WITNESS THAT UTTERETH LIES, AND HIM THAT SOWETH DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN.” Prov 6:16-19

Wow!
Who wants to be on the wrong side of GOD?
Those who spread lies are there already.
