I see a fearsome mistake that men far too often make. I see it for two reasons. First I see the mistake because I saw it in other men. Then the mistake came to life as I saw it in myself.
The mistake is that any man should think he holds the truth in his own hand. And the mistake becomes evident when our actions and words do not reflect perfection and purity.
I know that many will not understand this. They will think that the body of religious words have power in themselves. But this mistake happens when people forget that the body of religious words are but a shadow of He who is immeasurably pure and brilliantly righteous.
The mistake happens when people look to their own history, or even the history of any other man, and think the truth they perceive can belong to man.
Man, in himself, can never hold the fullness of what is true. I used the word never and meant it with all the fullness that that means. Man’s reliance on the Living God’s Holy Son does not cease at our eternal appearance in heaven.
Truth is the Living God himself. Truth is not a body of evidence among men, whether in word or in deed. Truth is the Living
Person of Jesus the Christ of God.
Failure to pray will surely lead us into things that are not completely true. Failure to humble ourselves before the Majesty of God, will surely cause us to live abundantly in a Body of Lies.
