Texas hearsay

I loved this post, which said in part:

Steve was attempting to get into evidence a document when I objected because of hearsay. Steve pronounced boldly (and probably rightly) that this was not hearsay because it was not offered for the truth of the matter asserted. Immediately after saying this the J.P. scolded Steve and stated:

"listen here mister...in my court you may only introduce matters which are the truth and you better not be trying to introduce matters which are not for the truth of the matter asserted."
