Whose Truth do You Follow?

What is truth? Ever hear of this gem…your truth is not necessarily my truth. I guess that all depends on where you get your Truth from now doesn’t it?

If I expound on what I believe is true, then my statements are open to debate. Truth cannot be based upon what I think, or for that matter what anyone else thinks either. What I think is my opinion, not fact. Sadly however in today’s society, many people’s basis for truth is what they themselves believe to be true. The modern approach to truth, or the worlds approach to truth is that if you personally believe something to be true, then it is. However, that being said your truth is not necessarily anyone else’s truth. Confused yet?

If I present what is the “real truth”, I’m perceived, as being narrow minded; judgemental, intolerant, and even a liar. Contrary to popular opinion, there is only one source for truth. There is only one truth, and that is God.

What is truth anyway and where does it come from? Truth, real truth is based solely on God…always. Jesus said I am the truth, (John 14:6) (John 14:17) and that we would posses the Spirit of truth. God is truth, and all truth comes from Him. Don’t be led astray by today’s world, which is full of foolishness and un-truth. There is an ultimate truth, a single source of truth to live by…the Word of God. As God is truth, so His Word is truth also.

John 8:32 states, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Knowing Jesus as Savior and understanding His teaching, the Truth, will set you free. Free from bondage to sin, free from death everlasting, free from guilt over your sins, free from a meaningless existence.

If you however subscribe to the “world’s truth” you will not be free, you will in fact be enslaved. Worse yet, your enslavement won’t end in this life, but will continue on into eternity. Truth as the world sees it, (see above) is a very clever trap designed by Satan. Worldly truth is appealing because whatever you choose to believe is true, that way whatever your actions are in life, you are justified. Isn’t that great? The problem with this is your conscience knows better…which is why you have the guilt factor in your life. Your conscience was given to you by God, it is His law written on your heart!                          Romans 2:15 since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.                                                                                  The world’s truth also has a one very unpleasant side affect, your death. So we all die so what? Well after death we all will have one of two destinations, heaven or hell. If you are a follower of worldly truth, you will at the judgment be cast into the lake of fire         (Revelation 20:15). The believers of God’s truth will be in heaven.

There is only one truth, the Truth of God. Believe in it and receive life everlasting. Receive forgiveness of sins. Be free from guilt and condemnation (Romans 8:1). Be right with the Living God…we all will bow before Him, willingly or unwillingly. I choose willingly because Jesus saved me, because I love Him.

Confess your sins to God acknowledging you are a sinner. Tell God you are sorry for your sins. Ask Jesus to come into your life as Savior and Lord, believing that He died on the cross for your sins, and rose to life and is living even now. You will be forgiven and granted eternal life.

Welcome to the family of God!

    “For He is the Truth, the Life, the Way.” “I” and “you” and “we” are created in His Image, but we are His Children only, not Him!

  2. mtsweat says:

    Amen Greg! Jesus is truth. All truth is God’s… even 2 + 2 =4. Thanks friend.

  3. Truth is not negotiable. Either it is or it isn’t truth: either it is right or wrong, a truth or a lie. There is no ‘between’ and no other option.
    J C Ryle said “We have the Truth and we need not be afraid to say so”

    Today, as you say, someone who stands on the Word of God and says something is wrong because God says it is wrong, is charged with being narrow-minded or judgemental or intolerant, or politically incorrect, or . . .

    Let us remain true to “The Truth” and speak for Him when and where necessary.

    As in courts of law all over the world where the witnesses say they will tell the truth and nothing but the truth, then lies or certain untruths are blown up , and certain aspects of truth omitted in favor of selected parties, so are the lies of the world. All purporting to be truth but untruths are the order of the day.

    Only the Lord Jesus who lives today in the heavenlies has said “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man comes unto the Father but by Me.” No one else has dared to say that and is still living. No one who says that will live. Only Jesus has declared He is the Way to the Father. No one except Jesus Christ has said He will come again , to take His beloved home to be with Him forever. Accept Him today.
