I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist (1 John 2:21-22).
The scary truth is that people still have difficulty handling the truth. This difficulty is your demise because truth is the only thing that can set you free. You might be familiar with the secular term “your truth is your truth” posited by Oprah Winfrey, as if this makes any sense. Apply this same logic to cancer eating your esophagus or your foot severed in a car crash. Your truth is your truth. I could say that my foot is not severed and cancer doesn’t exist all the way to bleeding out or cancer removing my ability to breathe.
Jesus doesn’t care about your ability to handle or not handle the truth. You must simple convince yourself that its worth knowing and having before you leave the planet. You must make your own mind up or be punished for indecision when the judgment of God comes and you are not prepared.
The truth is that God has given us a way out of damnation. He has given us a scapegoat name Jesus who died upon the cross for sinners who repent and become baptized in him. He has given us specific instructions to be salt and light to the lost and to acknowledge him in all of our ways.
The truth is that many will choose ignorance and bliss over substance and salvation. They will rather be blinded by the lies and quote “your truth is your truth” then submit to the facts of life. They rather hide from reality and not deal with the reality that through Christ they are more than conquerors. Satan has successfully brainwashed them into fearing him, instead of the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Those who promote lies over the truth: You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44).
You may think “your truth is your truth” but this thinking will ultimately be your demise. Fear caused the man with a single talent to hide it and God did not respect him, but sent him to hell. God does not respect cowards. He simply casts them into hell and concerns himself with those who actually believe him, when he says no weapon against you can prosper and ever tongue that rises in condemnation against you shall be condemned.
