I genuinely believe there is no perfect person on earth.
So when I see people that generally defend the truth with people they don’t know, then turn around and refuse to acknowledge the truth about someone they know, it smacks of hypocrisy. I’m thinking along the lines of abuse victims.
These people will defend the victims until the abuser is someone they know. Then all of a sudden, the truth is overridden by their relationship with the abuser. Either victim shaming commences, or they simply disregard the facts because they know “he would never do that”, or worse, they think it’s okay. Folks, people are flawed, but sin should never be glossed over, no matter how well we think we know someone. God knows the heart, and we know what He thinks about man’s heart.
Love speaks the truth always. People seek the truth, and when they can’t find it or don’t want to accept it, they make it up.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
