THE TRUTH II


LIVE BY THE TRUTH

John 8:31,32 says this, Then says Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. 

So I have to ask the first question, "Why would anyone not want to be free?"

Free from intimidation, control, group pressure, society pressure, political correctness pressure, friends pressure, or family pressure?

Our conscientiousness should be God centered. 

As we walk through life and are faced with all kinds of challenges, should we bow to tradition, should we bow to culture? Should we bow to political correctness? Should we bow to a group theory, or attitude? Absolutely NOT!


2nd Corinthians 6:14-18 
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
So let me explain a little, verse 14 Be not unequally yoked. This means in any way shape or form. In business, in a club, in marriage, or in a relationship with a non-believer who you feel a close tight bond with!

In verse 17 it says, wherefore come out from among them, this means not to be a member of any church that doesn't adhere to strict biblical guidelines or create church guidelines that fall under the category of legalism! It means not to hang out with the unbelievers of any religion or cult. Not to join in on any attitude or narrative (ie. political correctness) that would be untruthful and against the biblical standards of Jesus Christ!

We need to stand fast in the word of God. And we need to study and know the word of God! Sometimes as a true believer in God our father and HIS son Jesus Christ, we have to be like an Island, isolated from the mainland.
 

Faith is the key! 


Here's why! 1st: without faith, it's impossible to please God! Hebrews 11:6. If you are facing a situation that by attending a certain event, or agreeing with certain people, or joining a certain group, you deny the biblical principles you know are the TRUTH, then you are pandering to the devil, and also giving your stamp of approval to whatever it is that is not of a biblical or moral standard!

As believers in Christ, we have to have integrity! We have to stand firm in our beliefs and convictions! We have to put on the full armor of God!

We need to try to instruct our children so that they don't do things that are against moral standards or biblical standards!
 
Culture, tradition or societal deviations vary differently than what our God would expect!

I can give examples here, the woman at the well who had five husbands, but the current was not her husband, John 4:17,18. Did Jesus rebuke her? The woman caught in adultery, John 8:3-11 Did Jesus rebuke her? . 

In the old testament it was different like with Lot's daughters, Genesis 31-36 or Noah's son, Genesis 9:20-25. They were under the law, but we are under grace.

The question remains, did Noah, did Lot, did Jesus act like it was okay for these things to happen? No, but love was in the mix when it came to chastisement. 

So, if we go along with any event that happens after we know the TRUTH was disregarded, what message does that send to those who disregarded biblical morals, guidelines or societal expectations and Truth? What position does it put us in when we know that an immoral or sinful act created the event that we are expected to comply with through attendance or complacency or otherwise?

We really need to side with our God, side with moral standards, hold to our integrity and be an example in thought, word, and deed!
