About the Truth…
Some things for you to think about concerning standing for truth in love.
“Seek the truth, listen to the truth, learn the truth, love the truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, defend the truth until death.”
- John Huss, burned at the stake July 6, 1415
“The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders, and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved. Consequently God sends on them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false. And so all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned.”
- The Apostle Paul, 2 Thess 2:9-12 (NET)
“But practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head.”
- The Apostle Paul, Eph 4:15 (NET)
“Just as in the entire world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, so it has also been bearing fruit and growing among you from the first day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth.”
- The Apostle Paul, Colossians 1:6 (NET)
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
- Jesus Christ, John 14:6 (NET)
Always remember: grace and truth; there can be no grace without truth. The truth is like turning on a light while the person is standing in front of a mirror; the law reveals God’s standard like a mirror, but the light shines on them so that they can see themselves in truth.
