WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Bible Is Our ONLY Guide

The Holy BibleThe Bible provides us with plain Scriptural Teaching for the True Followers of Christ

The statements on this guide represent what we believe is true Bible teaching. The statements are deliberately challenging, asking every reader to compare his own opinions with the plain teaching of Scripture, examining carefully the Bible passages offered as proof. If, as a result, a change of mind and heart is called for, there will be no doubt that the teaching of the Lord, and the book he trusted, must be followed and not what the churches teach.

 

All Scripture quotations are taken from the New King James (also known as the Revised Authorized) Version of the Bible.

GOSPEL OF CHRIST

True Bible Teaching - Gods Word Explained

GOSPEL OF CHRIST

THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST

"I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."  Romans 1:16

THE POWER OF GOD

The gospel of Christ has been provided through the power of God, (His Holy Spirit) so that all men would have the opportunity to be saved. This wonderful hope that is available to us is evident in the words of the Apostle Paul to the Romans, as quoted above. (Romans 1:16)

UNTO SALVATION

Salvation is something that all men desire. Many however, do not always think about and strive for this hope. It may only be when the fact of our mortality becomes apparent that we are seriously concerned with a future life.

The death of a loved one, or our own impending fate is likely to stir our thoughts on the potential for being saved from dying. It is certain that if we do nothing to change our condition, we are all destined to return to the dust of the ground, forever.

THE GOSPEL

The Apostle taught us that the key to a change in our destiny is the "gospel of Christ." It is both the message of the gospel, and the name of Jesus Christ that are important.

The gospel is therefore described as "the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ." ( See Acts 8:12 )

CHRIST

THE NAME OF Jesus Christ is more than just a name. Jesus actually means saviour, and the word Christ is the English term for the Hebrew word Messiah, which means anointed.

Salvation therefore is only possible through an anointed saviour. We are told in Acts 4:12 just how significant the connection to the name of Christ is. " Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

BELIEVETH

It is important to recognize that there are other key elements in the process of being saved. The "power of God unto salvation" mentioned above, is "for everyone that believeth."

Without faith it is impossible to please God. ( see Hebrews 11:6) We must believe in God, and believe in the gospel of salvation that he has provided, and in the name of Jesus.

BAPTISM

In the verse mentioned earlier from Acts 8:12, there is another critical matter. Our belief in the gospel and the name must lead to action. Those who believed Philip's preaching of the gospel, were baptized.

Our baptism should begin a life of obedience so that through the grace of God, we may find His salvation.

"Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God."  Mark 1:14

The Gospel of ?

It the gospel is referred to in many ways. It is called the "gospel of Christ". It is also referred to as the "gospel of the Kingdom of God". (as shown in the verse above).

The word gospel means "good news." In the 101 times that the word occurs in the New Testament the definitions of the gospel include:

Gospel of God
Gospel of the blessed God
Gospel of the Kingdom
Gospel of Christ
Gospel of Jesus Christ
Gospel of the Son
Gospel of grace
Gospel of peace
Gospel of your salvation

There is only one gospel, and none of these qualifiers of the term change that fact. It is all of those things and more, and the words that are written to amplify it simply add understanding to its scope.

Gospel of the Kingdom

One of the definitions of the gospel is that it is the gospel of the kingdom of God. The gospel then, is the good news about the kingdom of God that is coming.

It is in this aspect that the perversions of the gospel seem the most obvious. If you examine most of the current "Christian" teachings on the kingdom, you will see a false hope.

it is commonly believed that the kingdom is either in heaven or in your heart. These concepts are completely foreign to the gospel taught in the Bible. We owe it to ourselves to "test" the teachings about the kingdom using God's word as our guide.

Gospel preached to Abraham

One way that we can test the teachings is to look at one of the earliest examples of the gospel message as it was preached to Abraham, 2000 years before Christ. This is referred to in Galatians 3:8, where we can read what was involved:

"And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed."

A simple message but one thing is clear. The gospel hope had to do with the blessing of all nations on the earth.

Thy Kingdom Come

The location of the kingdom is further clarified in the "Lord's prayer", when the Master said: " Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." ( Matt 6:10)

Daniel the Prophet revealed a similar theme. " The kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him." ( Dan. 7:27)

Jesus also taught: "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." ( Matt. 5:5)

The scriptural teaching is consistent regarding this hope for the kingdom to be on this earth. The Psalmist declares:

"The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men."( Psalm 115:16)

THE GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION...IF IT IS NOT PERVERTED.

"Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."( Mark 16:15-16)

Believe AND be Baptized

The gospel message is the power of God unto salvation. This salvation requires that those who hear the pure gospel must believe that it is true. They must then demonstrate their obedience to the command to be baptized.

The quotation from Mark at the head of this page is very clear. It leaves little room for confusion.

There are many perversions of the true gospel teaching of the Bible. One of these distortions of the gospel would have you believe that faith alone will save. James has left us with a definite qualification on this teaching. "Faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." ( James 2:17)

Children of God

Paul told the Galatians that there was a combination of factors in the process of becoming children of God. He writes:

"For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." (Galatians 3: 27-29)

Our baptism through faith seals our covenant, and we become children of God and heirs of the precious promises made to Abraham.

Buried with Christ

When we are baptized, we are symbolically putting to death our former lives and being buried in the water. (This ceremony is accomplished when we are literally covered by the water.)

When we come out of the water, it is typical of a resurrection to our new lives in Christ Jesus. This process is described in the letter to the Romans, (chapter 6: 3-6):

"Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."

The case for being baptized is well made through the use of the little word IF in verse 5. IF we have been planted in the likeness of his death, we will also be resurrected as he was. If we should die before Christ returns, we certainly all want to be eligible for a resurrection from the dead. Baptism is a must if we want to be saved when Jesus comes.

Born Again

All of this is consistent with the Master's teaching in John, chapter 3, that we must be born again. Jesus clarified his message by adding:

"Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."(verse 3)

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

We are born of the water at our baptism. Hopefully, through the grace of our Lord, we will be born of the Spirit, as his faithful servants, when he comes in his Kingdom.

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel(Galatians 1:6)

The One True Gospel

When we consider the message of Galatians, (chapter one) we learn that it is very important to maintain the one true gospel in its original form as spoken by Christ and the Apostles.

We are told that even the same gospel, if it is perverted, is no longer acceptable. The matter is so serious that Paul pronounced a curse on any that changed the gospel, or attempted to replace it with a new message.

The gospel is the power of God for salvation to those that believe, (even as we have seen in our cover article from Romans 1:16).

It should be obvious that this power to save is only available when the gospel message is still pure.

Half-Truths

How can we determine if the gospel message that we are being taught is true? They say that the most deceptive words are those that have an element of truth. Outright lies are usually easy to detect, but when someone mixes the truth with error, the difference may be difficult to discern.

Test the Teachings

We must be alert to false teachings. They can deceive us into a hope for salvation that may be worthless. We are told in the Epistles of John that many false teachers are in the world. John tells us not to believe everything that we hear that sounds religious, but to test or try the influence of these teachers to see if they are from God. (See 1 John 4:1-3)

Search the Scriptures

Another method that we can use to determine the truth of any teaching is to compare it with God's word. The Bereans were commended because they “received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (Acts 17: 11)

Prove all Things

Do not accept the word of any preacher. They may be very sincere, but may be deceived themselves by a false idea.

The Thessalonians were told not to despise the words of the prophets, "but test everything, hold fast to what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21 NRSV)

The Bible predicts that there will be a falling away in the last days and that many will believe in fables. Make sure that the gospel that you believe is one that truly offers salvation.

THE OFFER OF LIFE OR DEATH

 
 

The Offer of Life or Death“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”   John 4:23-24

The Bible is a large book, but it teaches us the truth from beginning to end, therefore anything towards the end of the Bible eg. The New Testament must agree with what is taught in the Old Testament, also remember that the divisions of the Bible into Old and New Testaments is a manmade one, the whole Bible is God's WORD to us and must be undersood consistently as such.
