Commentary By: Gordon King
We live in a world that tells us everyone is right, that there is no wrong except what we see as wrong, that everything is good and acceptable, even that all religions and beliefs lead to heaven!
It’s a world of political correctness, a world in which we have to be very careful not to do or say anything that will offend someone else. We must be sure to accept all things as good, to be open to all forms of life styles and pleasures in life, after-all, we wouldn’t want to offend anyone now would we?
It’s a world in which everything is the truth, where everything is accepted as the right way, where everyone is free to live and do as they please. Of course there is one exception to these rules, and that is Christianity! Christianity seems to be the only religion on the face of the earth where it’s followers are condemned for believing and practicing their faith!
So the question is: “Are there absolute truths in this world or are they only what we make them to be?”
The world will lead you to believe that truth is what we make it, that there is no right or wrong except the ever changing truths of the world, the evolutionary expansion of the mind and of truth. They believe that truth is constantly changing and evolving over time, that it is shaped and molded by human evolution and society, and this is how they live their lives, this is how they make their decisions, by ever-changing truths, truths which never remain the same!
The bible tells us differently, it tells us that there is but one way to heaven, one truth, one life, and His name is Jesus Christ!
‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” ‘
Jesus Christ is the way, the only way, He is the truth, the only truth, and He is the life, the only life!
The ways of the world are full of envy, wickedness, lust, pride, evil, and ever-changing with the times. But the ways of the Lord are righteous and holy, never changing, always the same throughout time.
It’s no wonder that those of the world are so confused, that there is so much chaos and confusion in the world today. No one knows what the truth is anymore, at least not in worldly standards! The truth is constantly changing, there is no continuity, no foundation upon which to build ones life or to make sound decisions.
There are thousands of religions in the world today, no wonder people are so confused! Satan has a way of causing mass chaos and confusion and he has done a great job of it so far! And the world says that all ways lead to heaven, all religions, all faiths, all beliefs, that everyone will one day get to heaven! But that’s not what Jesus Christ said! He said that He is the only way, that a person must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven! And the only way to be born again is by repenting of ones sins, by believing that Jesus Christ is who He says that He is, and by accepting Him as your Lord and Savior! That’s it, no other method, no other means, no other way! It is absolute, the absolute truth!!!
The world doesn’t want to hear the truth, it want’s to reinterpret the truth as it well pleases. The world hated Jesus two thousand years ago and it does also today! The world hates Him because He represents the truth, the only truth, the only way. The world hates Him because He professed to being God, because He said that He is the only way to heaven, it did then and it does now!
There are many absolute truths in the bible, truths which are never changing, truths which the world is at odds with. These truths guide us in a righteous life, a holy life, a life which goes against the grain of modern society. Being obedient to the truth leads us in a righteous life with God, being obedient to the truth is being obedient to the Lord! If we are obedient to the truth then we shall be born-again, if not then we will never know the truth. And if we are born-again then we should be obedient to the truth or we will fall away from the truth and be led to believe the doctrines of demons!
There are absolute truths of God Almighty, truths which always remain the same, they are forever truths, never-changing truths, truths which lead us into righteousness. The truths of the world are lies, they are ever-changing, never stable, always causing conflict and chaos.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
