What Will I Do with Truth?

“What is truth?” he asked, as though that released him from his responsibility to do what was right. Perhaps Pilate thought pleading innocent could change reality. Lying often covers the real sin I’m trying to hide.  At Pilate’s core, he loved pleasing people more than he loved truth. Truth doesn’t need defending. Truth is true.

Eleven Percent
