I’m kind of heated that I even have to write about this, but I’ll do it anyway because I love you all.
Feel free to get mad and then get over it because I’m about to speak ACTUAL truth and it won’t feel good to some of you.
There is no “your truth.”
“Your truth” is only real insofar as you speak what is real to you… but that does not make it truth. Those are two different things. There is only one truth. When everyone can just have “their own truth,” that is called relativism.
Relativism is a worldly concept and opposed to the gospel.
If the body of Christ continues referring to our human perceptions as truth, we will be misleading the world and setting a horrible example.
I’m not going to touch on specifics because it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we stop just repeating crap that sounds good and start believing things that are Biblical and holy.
The body of Christ doesn’t exist to make everyone feel good and condone peoples’ (and their own) “version of truth.”
So here’s the real truth:
Every one of you reading this is a sinner.
You probably already know each of those sins in detail and have been doing them for a long time. Even us Christians. That is truth.
Part two: there’s a way out.
Jesus died so that you can be forgiven and find freedom from those patterns of sin.
Now here’s the hard truth:
You don’t get to walk around claiming the second part without knowing the first. If “your truth” discounts the fact that you are a sinner, it’s not truth at all. It is a lie from the enemy that’s been coated in pumpkin spice flavored, pop-culture lukewarmness and it is meant to destroy the witness of the church.
I pray to God we start taking this title of Christian more seriously or drop the act if we aren’t willing to go all in.
Sorry y’all but you can’t have both worlds. It’s Kingdom or bust.
With loving admonishment.
“This, then, is the judgement: the light has come into the world, and people have loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil. For everyone who practices wicked things hates the light and avoids it, so that his deeds may not be exposed. But anyone who lives by the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be shown to be accomplished by God.” John 3:19-21
