Post Truth is the Term of the Year

For some years we have been living in the Postmodern Era which questions whether there is any truth or facts in life. Finally, in 2016, The Oxford Dictionary concludes we have no truth at all. 

The Oxford Dictionaries says the term: post-truth could be “one of the defining words of our time.”

The termbecame popular during the 2016 election campaign in the United States. Post-truth, as the website defines it, means to relate to situations where “objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”
Oxford Dictionaries officials say they chose post-truth as Word of the Year because of its rising popularity. They said the term’s usage appeared to increase 2,000% in 2016 alone.
Christians have faced the lack of belief in truth for some time. When we state that  God created the universe or that some event is recorded in the scripture we get blank stares or outright rejection. 
It seems that FEELINGS have replaced THINKING as the basis for decisions.

That is both good and bad. Good because Faith in Christ leads to better feelings and a better life. Bad because it cannot stand long. The feeling we have are at the mercy of many events and happenings. 
Thankfully, Christianity is based on "truth in Love" we have all of a balanced life. If you want to keep geting these words of wisdom support us at this web and buy my fantastic books!
