Truth

Truth will never change or evolve as some would have us believe. What is true yesterday is true today, and what is true today is true tomorrow. Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune God, is the truth (John 14:6). He is the source and author of all truth and has revealed the truth through His word (John 8:31-32). All who profess to speak the truth must submit their claim to the ultimate measure of truth, the written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). If what is claimed to be true contradicts or does not measure up the standard of truth then what is stated is not true. Simple, and yet, because of man’s sin nature he will twist the truth revealed in Scripture to suit his corrupt thinking, or he might even seek to discredit God’s Word by claiming either it doesn’t speak to the facts, or that the truth revealed is somehow changed over time, or because of changes in the culture of society (Romans 1:18-23).

We see this perversion of truth in many areas of life and society. The abortionist redefines the baby in the womb from being a unique human being made in the image of God to be merely a blob of tissue that is an appendage to the woman who bare it, thereby justifying the killing of the unborn human being (Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5; Job 31:15; Luke 1:41 – did a “blob of tissue” leap in Elizabeth’s womb? Certainly not!). The Homosexual, Lesbian, trans-gender, bisexual person will seek to justify himself or herself by twisting God’s word or dismissing its clear teaching in this area (Leviticus 18:22; Deuteronomy 22:5; Romans 1:24-28, 32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:9-11 – “Sodomite” is a reference to homosexuality, etc.). There are many societies today who have taken it upon themselves to okay the marriage of two persons of the same sex – a clear intrusion to overthrow God’s truth concerning marriage, which is only between one man and one woman, according to God’s revelation of truth in His Word (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:2; Ephesians 5:22-33).

Finally, but not the least of which, the evolutionist, who has sought to either deny or twist the truth revealed in Genesis, and elsewhere in Scripture to conform to an ungodly and unbiblical conception of the origins of life based on the imaginations of corrupt men. Genesis has been reinterpreted in so many different ways to accommodate the religion of evolution; such as, the days in Chapter One are wrongly understood to be long periods of time rather taking God’s eye witness account for what it says, He created the heavens and the earth in six ordinary days as we understand them to be today (Genesis Chapter One – evening and day indicate an ordinary day; 2:2-3; Exodus 20:11; 31:17). Others have proposed that a “gap” of time existed between verses one and two, as if God got it wrong the first time and had to start over again became void and without form. This was formulated to answer the question as to why the “maturity” of the earth. They ignore the simple answer that God created it that way and instead sought to accommodate the religion of evolution, not to mention this theory is not supported anywhere in Scripture, but come rather from the man’s imagination. Still others have proposed that Genesis is not a historical account of the beginning of the world but rather poetry open to anybody’s interpretation according to his or her imagination – the Framework hypothesis (or shall we say hypocrisy) is so pagan and foreign to the truth revealed in Scripture that only a person so darkened in his or her mind by sin would ever think there is any truth to it (Job 38:4ff – God declares He is the only eyewitness to what was done and is therefore only one qualified to accurately give an account how all that exists came into being – who are you, oh man, to contradict God – abandon your foolishness, repent and seek forgiveness of your sin, which is only through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord).

The claim that science supports and is proof of evolution is not true. Evolution is an interpretation of the facts of science and doesn’t even come close to explain the scientific discoveries made in past and most of all recent discoveries. The only reasonable explanation to scientific facts is found in God’s revelation. Think about it, since The Triune God of the Bible is the Creator of all things do you think that He might just be the best interpreter of the science that he created? Of course He is (See Job 38)! Otherwise, to disagree or set up your own explanation outside of Scripture is to call God a liar, which is nothing less than blaspheme.

God is truth and He has revealed His unchanging truth in Scripture. Let all who seek the truth measure all things to what is revealed in Scripture alone. Jesus said, “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free’”(John 8:31-32). The truth that makes a person free is the truth that looks by true faith to Jesus Christ alone for salvation from the penalty of sin, which is death (Romans 6:23), both of body and soul, in time and eternity, who rests in his atoning sacrifice on the cross for redemption from the bondage of sin and having been purchased by His blood and raised up again by His Spirit to new life in Him looks with great confidence and hope to the life everlasting to the praise and glory of God (Ephesians 1:3-14). – Soli Deo Gloria!
