Rejecting God’s Truth   2 comments

This is Part 4 of a series on Biblical truth. Check it out.

In John MacArthur’s The Truth War, he began:

Who would have thought that people claiming to be Christians—even pastors—would attack the very notion of truth? But they are.

MacArthur cited special examples in the book, then made this statement:

The idea that the Christian message should be kept pliable and ambiguous seems especially attractive to young people who are in tune with the culture and in love with the spirit of the age and can’t stand to have authoritative biblical truth applied with precision as a corrective to worldly lifestyles, unholy minds, and ungodly behavior. And the poison of this perspective is being increasingly injected into the evangelical church body.

MacAuthur goes on to show how God and truth are inseparable. Satan tempted Eve with the lie that undermined God’s truthful word. Ever since, the enemy has attacked the truth, because truth is inextricably bound up with God (John 8:44) and His Son Jesus Who speaks the truth and Who is the Truth (John 8:45; 14:6).

If we love God and love Christ we must love the truth and defend the truth when it is under attack. One characteristic of those who come under God’s judgment is that “they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved” (2 Thessalonians 2:10). All will be judged who “did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:12).

I highlighted Jesus’ trial before Pilate because it is so indicative of the world’s approach to God.

Jesus emphasizes the truth when He speaks with Pilate.

For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.

To which Pilate scoffs, “What is truth?” and walks away. (John 18:37-38)

Bringing these two points together, we can say that…

Jesus is the King of truth and everyone who is of the truth hears His voice. If you reject what Jesus taught, either directly or through the apostles, then you do not have the truth and you are not listening to His voice.
