The Triumph of Truth

“It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the
truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. It is not love and it is not friendship
if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for
telling a lie. It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies
and was not hated. It’s better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to
ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie.” –Pastor Adrian Rogers quoted in The
Berean Call Dec. 1996, p. 3
