Bud Collyer, who hosted “Beat the Clock” and “To Tell the Truth,” loved the Lord. He taught a Sunday school class for 35 years and wrote two inspirational books, “Thou Shalt Not Fear” and “With the Whole Heart.” Bud passed away in 1969 and no longer has a clock to beat! He ran the race and now rejoices in the eternal presence of Truth: His Lord and Savior.
It is so important to know the Truth. We need to discern impostors and
untruths, as well as tell the Truth by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. God has revealed his Truth throughout his creation and his written Word. Jesus came into the world to “testify to the Truth” (John 18:37).
In speaking to believers, the Apostle Paul writes, “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ” (Colossians 2:8).
The enemy of our souls is a skilled impostor. The Bible warns that many will choose him through his craftiness and lies. In that respect, Satan is not playing a game. It is so important to be
grounded in Truth and strengthened by other believers.
"Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free'" (John 8:32).
