What is Truth?

img_5612It’s not “what”…it’s “who.”

I believe the Bible. I believe it is God breathed, true and sufficient 2 Timothy 3:16-17  and the Holy Spirit will teach us everything, and remind us of His word (which we find in the Scriptures John 14:26.

Have you ever given that serious thought? I have been for about 5 years now.  As I read and study His word, I am learning and it’s making more and more sense.  I’m more convinced than ever that the Bible is all I need.  His word is truth.

 

But the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.  2 Timothy 4:3-4 (ESV)

I leave you now with a few verses to ponder…

Free Gift-Romans 6:3

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Only Jesus-John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

One Mediator-1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all —this was attested at the right time.

Justification by faith-Galatians 2:14-16

(Paul rebukes Peter…)

Galatians 2:14-16 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 But when I saw that their (A)conduct was not in step with (B)the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas (C)before them all, “If you, though a Jew, (D)live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”

Justified by Faith

15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not (E)Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that (F)a person is not justified[a] by works of the law (G)but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, (H)because by works of the law no one will be justified.

All of the verse links are side-by-side English Standard Version Bible and the New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition Bibles for my Catholic family and friends to have a comparison.

  1. Praise the Lord for His Truth and salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone! That’s so good that Bible Gateway can show both translations side-by-side. I wasn’t aware of that.
