Truth Wins! (Philippians 1:15-18)

Today’s scripture: Philippians 1:15-18

I don’t think it’s a surprise to hear our world is full of “preachers and teachers” spouting their own version of the gospel. They call themselves born-again Christians and yet tell their congregations that the Bible isn’t God’s final truth. That there are many ways to get to heaven. That Jesus didn’t live a sinless, perfect life. Oh, how the enemy must be clasping his hands with glee.

False teachers. False prophets. Just as Paul and Peter and John wrote about.

It’s hard to know such skewed teaching is being sent through the airwaves, but we can have confidence that God is in this. He’s in control. And somehow, I pray that those who listen to those false teachers—those who really seek truth—will be able to see beyond the words. That they’ll read and study the Bible for themselves. That they’ll seek men and women of faith who are preaching the true gospel message.

And as I’ve written many times, it may seem the enemy is winning battle after battle, but we know Who wins the war.

Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly.

We cannot get ignore what Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." If anyone claims to be seeking after truth, this cannot be ignored. In fact those 3 things He said about Himself say more than I have lived in, but I believe I should walk in those as anyone of us should!
