Truth Seekers

#72 #dontbelievewhatyoureadinthepapers… An obvious statement perhaps, and yet many people seem to hold papers in high authority. #ecclesiasticus19v4to17 tells us that “One who trusts others too quickly has a shallow mind…” and warns against repeating a conversation, claiming that you will lose nothing if you do not, implying that you will lose if you do! These words struck me as I read a news article concerning David Cameron’s attack on Corbyn:
Where politicians have to resort to twisting one another’s words, or putting another spin on what they said and taking phrases completely out of context to further their own popularity, I wonder whether society should be calling them to account. Such #gossip would not be tolerated in most other professions, so why does society tolerate it from government?
