The quagmire of lies

On a fundamental level, sin is based on a lie: a perception or a choosing of something evil as something good to do.

Thus today’s world is piled deep with lies and filled with sin, making it an exceedingly difficult for people of faith and virtue to navigate.

In the midst of this quagmire, the words of our Lord in today’s Gospel (John 8:31-42) illuminate a safe path for us to embrace and follow.

If you remain in my word,
you will truly be my disciples,
and you will know the truth,
and the truth will set you free.
