Global Apostasy: Ancient Truth vs. Ancient Heresies
Just as God is Love, and is Holy, and is Righteous, so also God is TRUTH. Truth is defined by our dictionaries as:
Truth: "conformity to fact or actuality; proven to be or accepted as true; reality; actuality; often truth is defined as that which is considered to be the supreme reality and to have the ultimate meaning and value of existence." (The American Heritage Dictionary)
Our God is a God of Truth
We worship a God who calls Himself the God of Truth (Deut. 32:4; Psalm 31:5).
Deuteronomy 32:4 "He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He." NKJV
We trust a Savior, God the Son who calls himself The Truth (John 14:6), and came to us full of grace and Truth (John 1:14, 17).
John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." NKJV
We are indwelt by God the Spirit, who calls Himself the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13).
John 14:17 "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you." NKJV
We read and study God's Word which is called the Word of Truth (Psalm 119:43); and as God's children are called followers of the Way of Truth (Psalm 119:30); because we were born again by the Word of Truth (Eph. 1:13; James 1:18; I Peter 1:22).
Psalm 119:43 "And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, For I have hoped in Your ordinances." NKJV
Psalm 119:30 "I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgments I have laid before me." NKJV
Ephesians 1:13 "In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise." NKJV
Our entire life in Christ is to be built upon the solid rock (Matthew 7:24) of Christ's Truth. Jesus came full of grace and Truth (John 1:14), to lead us to the God who can only be worshipped in spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24).
