Truth War …

John MacArthur

The Truth War is, after all, war. Warfare is always serious … and therefore it requires of us the utmost diligence. What we desperately need today are “shepherds according to [God’s] heart, who will feed [believers] with knowledge and understanding” (Jeremiah 3:15; Acts 20:28-31). But it is every believer’s solemn duty to resist every attack on the truth, to abhor the very thought of falsehood, and not to compromise in any with the enemy, who is above all a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44).

—– [The Truth War: Fighting for Certainty in an Age of Deception, Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2007, p. xviii (adapted)] —–

What do you base your faith and practice upon? Is it upon men’s traditions or upon God’s infallible and inerrant absolute truth? In this post-modern world we live in we too often agree with them (just to avoid conflict): “you believe what you want and I will believe what I want” – w/o any regard for the truth. Do not allow yourself to do that. Examine what you believe and judge it in accordance to God’s Scripture. We are told in 2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I would encourage you to do that daily not to prove your position but to see what the word actually says and then making application in your life accordingly. Engage in the Truth War – the battle is raging!
