When Men Choose Their Own Truth

Thursday, 04 October 2012 · Uncategorized
Both liberals and conservatives can get it wrong sometimes. We live in depravity and our minds are not perfect. Those who are knowledgeable of their own mental shortcomings and humble enough to admit them may offset some of their weaknesses by turning to the source of all truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and life” (John 14:6). Men cannot arrive at wisdom by wandering about in the mud on his own mind, wisdom can only be found by looking to a transcendent source that reveals His wisdom in a love letter written to those He created.

We acquire wisdom when we reverence God. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10). The unbelieving mind questions and even tries to eliminate the absolute truths of God’s word. It embraces a relative truth rather than an absolute truth. Some would simply declare that real truth cannot be discovered.

Premarital sex, homosexual and adultery are all justified by asking the question, “Are they really in love?” Somehow, being in love justifies violating laws written for men by an eternal God. Some will justify their choice of relative truth over absolute truth by promoting the myth that a situation can make it right.

There is no human logic that can dismantle the absolute truth of the creator. It may have been Wody Allien who said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” The ultimate danger for a conservative or a liberal who turn their back on God’s truth is that He will give “them over to a depraved mind to do what ought not to be done.” God demonstrated over and over again how patient and longsuffering He is, but here is one absolute truth we dare not ignore: “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal” (Gen 6:3). We only have so much time to find the truth that will set us free.
