How Will We Ever Know?

With instant information, e-transactions, e-books, and political hypocrisy, how will we ever know what the truth really is, or really was? How will we know which version was true and which version was the product of the revisionists? As I read the news, I just can't help but wonder what the original truth truly is and what the revised explanation actually is. As I read about unemployment, job opportunities, and increased spending, I simply cannot help but wonder where this "hedonic treadmill" will end. I remember when I was in school, and yes that was a day or two ago, we were taught that Abraham Lincoln was an ethical man, but not inclined to religion. We were taught that although he allowed his wife to take their sons to church, he did not choose to attend and the reason given were the differences within the denominations and on every street corner. Well, now President Lincoln is reported to be a Christian of extraordinary faith and I think even the author of a devotional. So, which way is it? Who did the revising? Now on to e-banking transactions, e-books, and e-mail. How will we know what gets changed, what gets lost, and what simply was not "translated" from hard copy to electronic or cyber? As more and more instant appears and more and more hard copy disappears, not to mention the conservative book burners of written manuscripts that they find offensive, how will we know? Scripture says, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." Well, if we never know what the truth actually is, is that the pathway to bondage?
And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage . . . Torah of Holy Scripture
