The Importance of Knowing the Truth

"No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light." 2 Corinthians 11:14

"Error can be subtle, truth is absolute; truth cannot contain error, but error can contain truth. You can have 1 percent error and 99 percent truth but still have error. Or you can have 99 percent error and 1 percent truth and still have error. Satan has a broader choice of subtlety in his error than we have in truth. That's why it's so important we have an authority for the truth; we cannot be our own authority for truth. Scripture says our minds are deceitful. I cannot be my own authority for challenging such a big positin, and I have to state that authority and be under that authority." (Fred Smith, Leading With Integrity, 124)
