Truth is Narrow

Truth is narrow.  2 + 2 = 4.  Always has and always will.  You could start a movement to eradicate that belief.  You could scream and shout that this is so narrow-minded, so bigoted, so outdated, so old yet it would not change the fact that 2 + 2 =4.  Simply because you don’t like the truth doesn’t do anything to the truth.  You can deny it.  You can try to ignore it.  But in the end, it’s still the truth.

God lives.  This is true.  Whether you want to believe that or not will not change the fact that God is there.  You can try to hide from Him, try to ignore Him, try to talk yourself out of belief in Him but in the end, He is still there and He is still truthful.

The Bible is true.  You can try to avoid the Bible, never read it, never open it, etc. but the Bible is still true.  You can deny it.  You can blog about how much you hate it.  The Bible will still be true.

And you will die.  You cannot avoid this fact.  Every person reading this will die.  Your life will end.  And then you will stand before God who lives and be judged by His truth.  If you ever broke His laws such as lust, stolen any thing, used His name in a curse word, lied, etc., you will be found guilty on the day of judgement.  You will be cast into hell for your sins.

Our only hope is the gospel: the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Jesus died to reconcile us to God (2 Corinthians 5:18-21).  Jesus shed His blood so that we could be forgiven of our sins against a holy and just God (Ephesians 1:7).  Jesus lived a perfect life and then He willfully gave His life for our sins (Romans 5:8-11) so that through faith and repentance, we could be declared righteous before God (Romans 5:1).  Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6) and none come to the Father but through Him.  Jesus alone is the only One who can save us from our sins (Matthew 1:21; 26:28).  Jesus alone is the One who stands before God the Father in our defense (1 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 John 2:2).  Jesus alone is our salvation.  In fact, His name means “the Lord saves.”

Truth is truth.  2 + 2 = 4.  Salvation only comes through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9).  Salvation is not found in a religion or in a church group.  Salvation is found only in Jesus Christ (John 3:3-5).  Jesus is our eternal hope before God (Romans 6:23).

You will die.  The question is whether or not you have repented of your sins (Acts 2:38).
