THE SUPPRESION OF TRUTH

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.” -Romans 1:18-19
The Holy Scriptures tell us that truth is obvious. In fact, those who deny it are engaging in self-deception.
To suppress is to “resist consciously.” Suppression is not a disbelief of the truth but a denial of it. There is a world of difference between ignorance of the truth and a denial of it.
The existence of God and the laws of Nature do not have to be proven. Jefferson, in his writing of the Declaration paraphrased Romans by calling them “self-evident” Truths. Something that is self-evident, (obvious) needs no trial to determine the veracity.
