Refining Truth is aptly named. The truth, regardless of consequence will always be the priority. It forms us and shapes and improves us. With God’s word it is simple for God and His word is always the truth. Man’s word isn’t. Unfortunately Refining Truth just experienced the fallacy of man with a news item we published.
Recently we published a news article from a source that was considered reliable. The story, which was about the Vatican asking for a re-write of the Bible, although checked through multiple sources was later discovered to be unfounded.
The moment we realized the story was unsubstantiated it was deleted from Refining Truth and this retraction issued.
We encourage everyone to “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). We apologize for the error and will take additional steps in vetting all news sources from now on.
