The Sum Of Thy Word Is Truth

The Sum Of Thy Word Is Truth

Whose word can we trust?

Everybody knows  that there are people  in this world  whose word  simply cannot be trusted.     They might have attained the status  of top leadership  in the country,  they might be very wealthy,  they might be considered very intellectual,  they might be spiritual leaders — whatever the case may be,  it is noted,  often by their deeds,  that their word should not be trusted.

Some people use their words  to gain political power over others;  some use words to illegally gain wealth;  some use words  to intimidate others  with their supposed  “knowledge”;  and there are false spiritual leaders,  who desire to rule  over others spiritually  with their words.

It’s the false spiritual leaders  who can lead people  to eternal death.

With the Internet,  TV,  radio,  books,  newspapers,  etc.,  each belief system  is trying to spread what they claim  is the absolute truth.     What in the world  should we believe  — if anything?

Most belief systems can almost  be seen  as  “agreeing”  quite a bit  on what is  “good”  behavior.     So, does it matter which one we  “prefer”?     Many will say it does not matter  what you believe,  just so long  as you are sincere  and  “try”  to be good.

But,  God’s word,  the Bible,  totally disagrees with all that,  because it amounts to willingly believing lies.

God’s word  is the only  “belief system”  (if you will),  that says our efforts  to try to be  “good”  will always fail miserably  because we are all sinners  and will remain sinners  during our whole life on earth.     Our supposed  good works  can never save us.

God’s word  is the only  “belief system”  in which  the promise  of a Savior  from all our sin  was presented  from the very beginning — was explained and prophesied through many different prophets  over thousands of years — and was all beautifully and perfectly  fulfilled  in the one man,  Jesus Christ.

Other belief systems mock  the idea  of a  “Savior”  from all of our sins.     They proudly attest  that we must  each work our way to heaven.     But,  the LORD God  is the only One who says no — we can only be saved  as a gift  of His mercy.     That is a huge difference!

None of these other belief systems  has ever been able  to show that they could fulfill prophecies  over thousands of years of time.     None  of their followers  has ever been able to lead  a sinless life  that could possibly  be good enough  to honestly  earn heaven.     Nevertheless,  they claim  to know the way to heaven through what they deem to be good works.

The claims  of many  of these different religions  have been made since the beginning of mankind.     Archeology shows us that.     Today,  they are making extreme efforts  to take us away  from our Savior Jesus Christ,  as their worship practices slowly infiltrate our churches.     People,  who claim to be Christian,  are looking at and adopting  heathen worship practices  and heathen meditation practices.     This is an abomination in God’s eyes.

As responsible,  loving children of God,  we need to check out His word,  by studying it every day.     In our concerns  to remain in the truth only,  Jesus invites us  in Matthew 11:28-30,

Come to Me,  all who are weary  and heavy laden,  and I will give you rest.     Take My yoke  upon you,  and learn  from Me,  for I am gentle  and humble  in heart;  and you shall find rest  for your souls.     For My yoke  is easy,  and My load  is light.

Then,  as we find peace  in our Savior, Jesus Christ,  we will exclaim an honest,  “Hallelujah!     Lord, truly,  ‘The sum of Thy word is truth,  and every one  of Thy righteous ordinances is everlasting!‘”    (Psalm 119:160)

Love,
