In the war over defining what is good and what is evil, words matter a great deal. In this episode, we look at what God’s word says about truth and the power of words. We’ll discuss how the war over words has been central to every major cultural battle of the last hundred years and how abortion, climate change, gay marriage, and transgender rights, were all fought and won by changing the definition of words. We’ll talk about why the tactic is so successful, how it generally works, and some of the key ways that we can fight back against it.
