Tell the Truth:

Tell the truth even if you have to lie. I know that sounds paradoxical, but you can't always state the truth directly. That's why Jesus spoke in parables. If he had spoken in plain, ordinary Latin that most people could have easily understood, the authorities would have executed him much sooner. He had to speak his truth indirectly, through stories and parables.

Unfortunately, speaking truth to power can get you killed. Sometimes you have to tell the truth through paintings and songs. And other times through imaginative stories. That's why it doesn't matter if god is a fictional character.
