The Brian Williams “apology” was evidence of how corrupting this can be. He said lots of things:
- He felt bad
- He didn’t like who had become
- He started out fine but was confused
- Was not sure when it occurred
Everything but, “I lied to make myself look good and I was wrong”.
Rejection of God and with him the standard for right and wrong / truth and falsehood allows each human to decide for themselves right and wrong.
He didn’t like who he had become – a laughing stock and an embarrassment.
He felt bad – because people were calling him a liar when in his mind he wasn’t.
He was confused, but all of life is confusing – right?
Jesus said I am the way. The truth. The life.
We need to hold up that standard and not allow culture to fog the issue.
