Today was the third attempt at having a Bible Study based on The Truth Project series by Del Tackett. For the first time people actually showed up! We had a very successful tour of what truth is, even if we did start late.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-13
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,
The enemy of truth is a lie, and it is by believing in the lie that we are led astray. Jesus Himself says that He is the truth, and that it is only through Him that we are saved. The Bible tells us that it is the truth that sets the captives free.
Do you want to know the truth? What real truth is? Then follow Jesus, the ultimate authority on truth.
8 but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,
2 Timothy 4:3-4
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
In a time where so many churches and “Christians” are being led astray by false doctrines and false teachings, we need to study the one and true Word of God, and only by studying what God says can we know the truth and be truly free. Only obeying what we want to believe will not do us any good.
This may be just some rambling, but they are some good verses that I wanted to bring to your attention.
I will post more on ideas that I have later, but for now, study God’s Word and obey it, for that is the only way we will guard ourselves from false doctrines and not be taken captive by the lies of the world.
