Truthful lips will be established forever, but a lying tongue is only for a moment.
Free societies stand or fall on the way they handle truth. Politicians who lie to the people ultimately are discovered and lose their ability to lead. Trust is vital for the democratic process. Without God and His absolute truth, political systems determine their own standards, and change them at will. One communist-era dissenter wrote that truth was whatever the state declared it to be at the moment. God’s truth, revealed in His Word, is established forever, and upholds individuals, families and their institutions, no matter what.
