The Bible is the Truth …. how can we just let it sit on the shelf!
S. Lawson – Characteristics of Truth – It is whatever God says it is. It is absolute, non-contradictory, authoritative.
We believe and follow a Truth that will never change throughout our life
truth often feels wrong.
Lawson: what is truth? Reality. Actuality, veracity, things that conforms to reality. Found in the written word of God: Scripture
Lawson: Characteristic of truth: divine. God as author, source, governor, arbitrator, standard and judge of all truth. He is truth
It’s by truth that you enter the Christian life, and by truth that you advance and grow.
Truth is not what most people think, the majority vote, or a social opinion, truth is the way things really are
“You tell me what you believe about 1 truth in the bible and I’ll tell you what you believe about 40 other truths
