I Saw It On the Internet by Gail

"The trouble with quotes on the internet is you can’t check 
their validity"     
Abraham Lincoln

I saw this quote on Pinterest…so funny…but so true. We’re bombarded by so many “facts” in our Information Age, but how many are accurate? 

I’ve had friends send me panicked emails about terrible political or religious situations only to find out they were operating on misinformation.  

And some of these scams are started for the explicit purpose of making Christians look foolish. But we do a pretty good job of that on our own. 

We buy into the feel-good philosophies of our culture that tell us life is about us, our self-esteem, our pleasure, and our rights. And we forget the boatload of Scripture verses that tell us just the opposite. 

But here’s a quote we can fully trust and validate:
“the words of the LORD are flawless, 
like silver purified in a crucible, 
like gold refined seven times.” 

*Validate it here: Psalm 12:6, NIV

  1. Great post, Gail! Enjoyed your use of humor to drive home an important point. Well done, my friend, and thanks for the reminder to trust in God's Truth above all.

  2. "We buy into the feel-good philosophies of our culture" which have permeated the teachings in many of our churches. It is sad so many are willing to sacrifice the challenging of their thinking with truth for the lies of self satisfaction.
    Keep the Faith!
