Historical revisionists and liberal Bible scholars are trying to apply modern-day values to the Word of God and to historical facts. They remove the pieces they don't like. May we be warned: If we continue on this path, we will end up with a pack of lies, and our children will not learn the Truth about the Word of God.
It is politically incorrect to say that Jesus Christ is the way, the Truth, and the life—but it is the Truth.
Scripture is clear. In 2 Timothy 4:2-4, Paul warns his young friend to not be ashamed to preach the Gospel, saying:
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
It is politically incorrect to say that Jesus Christ is the way, the Truth, and the life—but it is the Truth. Only His Truth changes lives and unlocks the beauty of our full worth as men and women who are made in His image. Only He can change our heart so we are able to love our neighbors.
We must remember, "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love" (Galatians 5:6).
Prayer: God, help me to be on guard against those who are removing pieces of the Truth from Your Word. Thank You for being the only way, the Truth, and the life. Help me to proclaim this Good News lovingly and unashamedly. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks" (John 4:23).
