Is the Truth Up for Grabs?

So let me ask you – which parts of your Bible do you want to ignore? What are the things that God has to say in His Word, the Bible, that appear uncomfortable or perhaps irrelevant to your modern lifestyle, hmm?

Truth is a concept that seems to be very much up for grabs these days. I mean, you’d think that the truth is absolute, like in a court of law. You examine the evidence, and eventually if you dig deep enough you come to the truth. At least, that’s how it should work.

But these days we have a much more pliable relationship with the truth, because frankly, we’re much more interested in convenience than we are in the truth.

Have you noticed how much disagreement there is amongst God’s people today on contentious issues? Is it okay for people to live together before being married? Should same-sex marriage be endorsed by the church? There’s quite a list of so-called “contentious issues” that divide apparently God-fearing, Christ-loving Christians. Why is that?

Well, the answer’s simple really. It’s because many of these apparently God-fearing, Christ-loving Christians have either stopped reading their Bible or they’ve stopped believing what their Bible actually says. No wonder the truth appears to be up for grabs. But it’s not really. The truth will always remain the truth.

John 8:31,32 So Jesus said to the Jews who believed in him, “If you continue to accept and obey my teaching, you are really my followers. You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

The truth may not always be that convenient or comfortable. Often the truth is challenging and unsettling. But when God speaks, it’s the truth. And it’s His truth that sets us free from all the stuff messing up our lives.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
