“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place.” (Ephesians 6:14, NIV84) This verse comes from a section of Scripture that is very familiar to most Christians. Here Paul encourages us, as Christians, to daily clothe ourselves with the armor of God. He assures us that…

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” (Ephesians 4:15, NIV84) Again we look at the connectedness between truth and love. Paul says that he is committed to speaking the truth in love. Truth alone is a point waiting for a counterpoint….

“Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.” (Ephesians 4:25, NIV84) The Church (body of Christ) is under attack today. Like the book of Revelation, we seem to be a lone voice speaking sanity in an insane world. Satan and the forces…

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.” (1 Corinthians 13:6, NIV84) We have been looking at the biblical concept of truth for weeks now. When you are up in the branches of a tree looking under the leaves for fruit, it is easy to lose perspective of the entire orchard. We can…

“This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.” (1 Corinthians 2:13, NIV84) Here the apostle Paul confirms again that the truths we hold are not self-evident. Because man is inherently sinful, he does not naturally believe and accept…

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.” (Romans 1:25, NIV84) The real issue about truth doesn’t lie in our intellectual ability. It is not like we can change everything if we just keep repeating truth claims over and over again….

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” (Romans 1:18, NIV84) In our quest for understanding truth from a biblical perspective, we now turn to the apostle Paul. In his letter to the Romans, he expressed great concern for the…

“‘You are a king, then!’ said Pilate. Jesus answered, ‘You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.’” (John 18:37, NIV84) This morning we look at…

“Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.” (John 17:17, NIV84) We stop to meditate today on an amazing verse in Scripture. Over the last month or so we have looked at a lot of verses that reference truth. We have been looking into the words of Jesus and appreciating the depth and meaning the…

“…the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14:17, NIV84) The Spirit of God is truth, too. The Scriptures declare that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all sources of truth….
