The power of truth is the power of reality, for they are one and the same.
It should be noted here that Russian physicist Andrei Sakharov developed thermonuclear weapons for the former Soviet Union.
But truth is only important, if all this is not the end.
Understand: A lie can kill 11 million people.
Think about it. If there is no God, then Sakharov is wrong in declaring that the truth is the most powerful weapon. If there is no God, then the most powerful weapon indeed must be the bomb, for it will destroy those who stand against you. The only way truth is more powerful than the bomb is if the destruction of one’s life is not the end of that life.
