Who can we trust to tell the truth?

So a group of Argentine Doctors have linked the larvacide chemical being used in Brazils water as a pesticide, as a possible cause of the birth defect known as Microcephaly, rather than the actual Zika virus caused by the very mosquitos the pesticide aims to control. Although researchers disagree on whether the chemical is a likely cause of the condition, the Brazilian government have taken the research seriously enough to ban the use of the pesticide. Now I’m no expert in such matters but one thing really troubles me and has done for some time.

Who can we trust to tell us the truth?

Governments, big business, religious organisations, among others have all let us down in the past as the pursuit of their own agenda’s sadly colour the shade of whatever particular ‘truth’ they seek to promote at any given time.

Thankfully in the person of Jesus Christ, who said “I am the way and the truth and the Life’ we have someone we can totally rely on. His words have stood the test of time and still provide the solid foundation upon which many societies seek to build their moral framework.

We may not always get our bit right in following his instructions but at least he is always true to his word.

‘I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.’
