“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things which is the head even Christ…” Ephesians 4:14-15
For thousands of years, mankind has tried to come up with our own source of rules, codes and laws. Perhaps we should learn from the mistakes others have made, as the Bible assures: “there is a way that seemeth right.’ But ‘the end’ is the ‘way of death’. (Proverbs 14:12)
And in our own sinful state, the Way which we believe is “Correct”, could be a road of false assumptions or conclusions leading down into the pit of destruction and severe disappointment.
This particular path is over-crowded! Everyone going “their own way” as the Bible clearly tells us in Isaiah. Hidden in the very same book, is the secret that God reveals to man.
“My ways are not thy ways!” Isaiah 55:8-9
The way of Truth is in Jesus as the Bible also tells us. (John 14:6/14:14)
Everyone searches for core values they can adapt to their own body of beliefs, and many books are written each year to help searching individuals discover a belief that fits their proverbial style.
But where is the source of all truth? The single literary work we can base our life views, principals, and doctrinal values? Where can one entrust their very lives upon a system of beliefs beneficial to their daily lives, and the lives of others, that is a proven trustworthy source?
Do you trust the opinions, ideas and values of professors, theologians, scientists, preachers, parents, etc. to be completely honest in their imperfect state?
Whether Creation or Evolution, Christian or Atheist, are you basing your life upon hear-say and human assumptions?
What is Truth?
Many a Christian has turned to heresy because of their disregard to ‘search the scriptures daily whether those things were so.’ (Acts 17:11)
The True Source of Truth is the Word of God! What does the Bible have to say concerning Dr. Wiggle Jaw’s newest ideology? Those who refuse to reflect their beliefs off the mirror of God’s Word are blown like the wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
How often have we swerved away from the direct command and warnings from the Scriptures?
Unless we, as Gods people, decide to take everything to the old Black Book for scrutiny, and determine our belief system by the directives from the Word of God shown to us through his Holy Spirit, we are liable to swallow the many lures off falsehood and become snagged in the snares of the devil we are warned about in the second chapter Timothy 2.
“But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them” 2 Timothy 3:14
“If so be that ye have heard him, and have heard that the truth is in Jesus:” Ephesians 4:21
