Here's an interesting fact: According to a poll done in 2008 by the Pew Research Center, only 18% of Americans believe all or most of what the New York Times publishes. (NYTIMES.COM / 2.13.09)
What does this tell us about Americans confidence in the news media outlets? Is there a greater percentage of Americans who believe what the television news reports? Is there any substantial confidence in anything that is considered fact or truth?
In our world, the terms fact and truth seem to be becoming more and more relative, with the foundation of this truth as liquid as quicksand.
How do we who live by Truth respond? We need to to model a deep conviction and adherence to the Truth, as opposed to a fluid and "qualified" standard.
We need to stand on our Standard.
