Even if we haven’t been victims of lies personally, all Christians are victims of group slander. Every day, Hollywood, the music industry, the mainstream media, Madison Avenue, and corporate HQ’s churn out movies, shows, songs, articles, commercials, and HR policies that soil, smear, and slander Christians. Misrepresentations, caricatures, distortions, and outright falsehoods darken our days and our hearts, distance us from God, and dampen our prayers and praise. In Psalm 43, a fellow-victim of slanderous lies guides us out of the darkness of lies and into the light of truth. He says, When lies get you down use God’s truth to lift you up.
