I have come to know about a situation which causes me to understand why people can sometimes become obsessed with getting the truth out about something. As an example, you occasionally see a person in a high position called out for some sin they are committing and you wonder why it was so important they be exposed. Was it worth the damage?
I think I understand why these things get exposed.
If you learn about a lie and then watch it go on long enough, you begin to crave the truth. You begin to want it like you want a breath of air for your lungs.
And you don’t just want the truth for yourself. You don’t just want a few people to know. You begin to want the truth to be broadcast on as broad a scale as will be meaningful. You just want the truth to dispel the layers of obfuscation, partial disclosure, and lies with the destructive force of a bomb.
Will it hurt? Yes. But it will restore the truth. And that has a high value of its own. We need truth in our lives. It is a terrible thing to have to live with an unraveling tapestry of lies. Every day something else is lost.
Just burn down the corrupt edifice of deceptive fiction and start over.
The promise is there that God can find a way to make all things new. Let us be committed to the truth.
