Series Introduction ~ The Creator of this universe clearly asserts that there is “absolute truth.” Each member of the Trinity confirms this—as does the Word of God. Thus, the popular concept of a few decades ago of their being “relative truth” and the current common perception of “your truth” and “my truth” are false narratives according to Almighty God.
Your Choice ~ Like all of mankind you, personally, have the ability to choose to believe and follow the truth or to continue along the paths of your natural inclinations.
Key Scriptures (right choice) ~ “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle — I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying — a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-7).
“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
Key Scriptures (wrong choice) ~ “O foolish Galatians [and 21st Century humans]! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?” (Galatians 3:1-2).
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven againstall ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (Romans 1:18-25).
Relevant Scriptures ~ “And the Lord said, ‘My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years’” (Genesis 6:3).
“For God says: ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
Comment ~ God, who is sovereign (in complete control) hasn’t promised you another day! Many individuals, younger than you, have passed on to eternity—unexpectedly! If you died today and God asked you, “Why should I let you into my heaven?” What would your answer be? There is only one acceptable answer!
Closing Thought ~ There is a common saying, “Figures don’t lie—but liars figure!” In other words, people can manipulate data. While that may be true, the reality is truth is always truth—even if the majority doesn’t believe it to be (or if data has been manipulated)! In like manner that which is false is untrue regardless of how many believe it to be true. C.S. Lewis put it this way, “When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind.”
