When your kid plays a weekend sport and you see someone breaking the rules the first thing you think is ‘it’s not fair’, right?
Few of us would say, ‘look, everyone is entitled to their view. If they wish to play that way, then we need to respect their choice and interpretation of the game’.
Not likely. We charge up to the referee and point out the infraction, expecting a just response.
Why is this innate to our psyche?
Why does truth matter so much in sport?
Ok, it’s just a game and we agree to abide by certain rules to play the game. Aren’t we just voluntarily submitting to such rules for a period that applies to the game being played? Yes. So, don’t get too high and mighty and start questioning my morality…it’s not like it’s about some big ‘right or wrong’!
Or is it? If there such a thing as truth then doesn't it matter?
What’s truth? Is the title of a brand-new video course for kids that can be used both in the home or the church ministry.
It's the only video course that tackles the tricky subject of truth in a way that kids understand and equips them to give good reasons for why they believe Jesus is 'that' truth.

It’s just not cricket
‘What’s truth?’ is a subject that came to the fore in Australia during a recent international cricket match between Australia and South Africa. Our leading sport heroes, including our captain, Steve Smith who was recently hailed as being as good as the great Don Bradman, were caught in a rule breaking scandal. They were caught cheating by fiddling with the cricket ball to try and create an advantage while bowling to the other team.
