I recall a song that Johnny Cash wrote in the early 1970's. It was titled, "What is Truth." The refrain went, " And the lonely voice of youth cries, What is truth?" It basically was about what was happening at the time with all of the changes going on in society. It certainly applies even now more than ever. I'm afraid the example that is being set forth by so many, coupled with the inconsistencies by the so-called establishment, no doubt leaves the youth as well as adults sometimes asking, What is truth?" Of course we can take comfort in the scriptures which proclaim, "Let God be true, and every man a liar."
