Godís Word Of Truth
By Ron Boatwright
The truth of Godís word is found in the Bible. Jesus says in John 8:32, "And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Only the truth that is found in Godís word can make us free from sin so we can be saved. God wants all people to be saved. 1 Timothy 2:4 says concerning God, "Who desires all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." Before one can be saved one must first come to a knowledge of Godís truth.
But there are many people today who do not want to know the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:10, 12 says many will "perish because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be savedÖthat they all may be condemned who do not believe the truth." Why will they be condemned? Because one can not obey the truth until he first believes it.
Many people as 2 Timothy 3:7 says are "Always learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth." Why arenít they able to come to a knowledge of the truth? Because as Romans 1:25 says, "who exchange the truth of God into a lie." And as 2 Timothy 4:4 says, "And they will turn their ears from the truth, and be turned to fables." Why are so many people turning from the truth? 2 Peter 2:2 says, "many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed." What is going to happen to people who believe these lies? 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 says, "God will send them strong delusion that they would believe a lie, that they might all be damned who believe not the truth." The world is saturated with religious lies that are going to cause the majority of people to be lost forever in the burning fires of Hell (Matthew 7:13-14). So it is a very serious matter that we know, believe, & obey only Godís truth. One cannot be saved unless he does so. People must read and follow their instruction manual (the Bible) on how to go to heaven.
