Why; with all the truth-seekers; seeking truth – among all the ‘Truth’ purveyors (Christian, Messianic and even Jewish) claiming to have ‘the Truth’ is there so much opposition to the ‘Truth’? And at times not just; ~opposition to~ but vicious, mean-spirited not content to just vandalize the message but malign and verbally violence the messenger as well.
As if that would change the Truth?
I say this realizing that – In a sea of sacred errors and religious lies; Truth is Treason. This statement only leaves 1 conclusion that the ‘Truth’ these purveyors are protecting and pushing is not Yah’s pure Truth at all. Does not account-for/Fully-Account-For all that Yah has said in His Word-Torah.
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident”. – Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788-1860)
“It ain’t what we don’t know that gets us into trouble. It’s what we know for sure – that just ain’t so”. – – Mark Twain, American author, lecturer and humorist (1835-1910)
This is what we are to do;
Mt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
This is what we are seeing more of
2Ptr 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they **understand not**; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they *know not*: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
These 1’s make sweeping broad-bush rapid fire statements sighting very little if any Bible. If they site Bible at all, they will usually give you their personal stylized remix of what they think the Bible said; complete with convoluted commentary. While ignoring what the Bible actually says that doesn’t fit their theology. This is neither accurate or honest. With a kind of; Ready!~Fire!~Aim, mentality.
They love uncontested pontification complete with no response or opportunity for – this works well if all you are interested in is appearing to be right – That is why they call it ‘pontification’ the Catholics are notorious for this technique. This is exactly what they seek, formulate & are drawn to. A type of ‘slanted journalizm’; weighted to the ‘house’ – Patting each other on the back with a ‘we’re right just ask us’ mentality. The Bible says they are not wise (1Cor.10:12 / 2Cor.10:12).
Searching for Truth requires Effort – Accepting Truth requires Humility – Teaching Truth requires Knowledge – Defending Truth requires Heart- Living Truth requires Dedication – Standing for Truth requires Courage – Standing in Truth requires Wisdom and the Calm Resolve in the Torah of Yahweh.
Discernment is not simply differentiating between right and wrong; but includes discerning to know the difference between right and almost right. (Adapted from ~ C.H. Spurgeon)
“The ultimate ignorance is the blind opinion charged rejection of any issue; coupled with the arrogant absence of correct knowledge which refuses to investigate what is known little or nothing about” – Dr. David L. Perry Th.D.
If this article doesn’t mean much to you; in that you can’t relate – you are probably somewhere mid-pack of the go-along-to-get-along crowd or maybe even leading it – who are happy with their ‘mixed’ message – happy with their ~error coated truth-sicle with the rainbow lie sprinkles on top~. I would highly encourage you to test everything – especially what you know you know along with what you love about what you know, but have never tested yourself before. This journey will take effort – Prayer, Study, Research, Consideration, Deliberation and some Repenting – But it is rewarding. Some good verses to start with are: Mt.6:33, Mt.7:13-23, Rom.10:2-3, Acts 15:19-21, Acts 17:11, (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)~1Jn.2:3-5 (&:6), Heb.4:2, Heb.7:11-12, 1Ptr.2:9; realizing it doesn’t stop there!
