Truth Decay! (A Study of 2 John 1-4)

Would you not agree that we are experiencing truth decay in our world? Many believe what they want to be true. Others doubt the existence of truth at all (except their statement that there is no truth). In times like these, we need the spiritual sanity of a writer like John who proclaimed in his gospel that Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me!”

Here is what John says about TRUTH in his second epistle:

1. We are to LOVE other believers “in the TRUTH” (v. 1).

2. All who know the TRUTH also love God’s people (v. 1).

3. The TRUTH lives in us and will be with us forever (v. 2)

4. Three amazing gifts will be with us in TRUTH and love: grace, mercy and peace (v. 3).

5. We should experience great joy when we find some of God’s children walking in the TRUTH (v. 4).

I love G.K. Chesterton’s statement when he said . . .

Orthodoxy: Coming HOME! (time for a good quote)

“I have often had a fancy for writing a romance about an English yachtsman who slightly miscalculated his course and discovered England under the impression that it was a newisland in the South Seas. . . . What could be more delightful than to have in the same FirefoxScreenSnapz496few minutes all the fascinating terrors of going abroad combined with all the humane security of coming home again? . . . But nearly all people I have ever met in FirefoxScreenSnapz497this western society in whichI live would agree to the general proposition that we need this life of practical romance; the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome. . . . I have kept my truths: but I have discovered, not that they were not truths, but simply that they were not mine. When I fancied that I stood alone I was really in the ridiculous position of being backed up by all Christendom.” (G.K. Chesterton)
