What does Christ Expect Us to Do?
As Christ’s disciples, we are required to speak the truth no matter what the circumstances are.
Therefore, Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, “If you will abide in my word, you will truly be my disciples. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” John 8:31-32.
"I have not written to you as to ones who are ignorant of truth, but as to ones who know the truth. For no lie is of the truth." 1st John 2:21
BEING CHRISTIAN ....
It is harder to be a Christian today without getting attacked for speaking God’s truths. In these dark times, we are required more than ever to stand up and live our faith courageously.
Do we want to enter the Kingdom of God? Yes! Do we want our neighbor to enter the Kingdom of God? Yes. Then we must speak the truth, because loving our neighbor means speaking the truth at all times even if it offends them. It is better to hurt them with the truth than hurt their souls by lying to them.
See what the Bible says:
Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment. Love one another. Just as I have loved you, so also must you love one another. By this, all shall recognize that you are my disciples; if you will have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
"And so, let us not be deficient in doing good. For in due time, we shall reap without fail." Galatians 6:9
And Jesus said to them, “Go forth to the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15
In today’s world of political correctness, we have taken it for granted that lying to others so as not to appear bigoted or hateful is acceptable. It is the new norm and if anyone dares to defy that norm, he or she is immediately crowned a bigot.
Here’s what the Bible tells us:
"Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord. But whoever acts faithfully pleases him.” Proverbs 12:22
"The just shall detest a lying word. But the impious confound and will be confounded." Proverbs 13:5
"A faithful witness will not lie. But a deceitful witness offers a lie." Proverbs 14:5
"A false tongue does not love truth. And a slippery mouth works ruin." Proverbs 26:28
Jesus said, “You are of your father, the devil. And you will carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning. And he did not stand in the truth, because the truth is not in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks it from his own self. For he is a liar, and the father of lies.” John 8:44
"But the animal nature of man does not perceive these things that are of the Spirit of God. For it is foolishness to him, and he is not able to understand it, because it must be examined spiritually." 1st Corinthians 2:14
