The Grace and Truth Paradox chapter 4, pages 37-42

Below are some exerts that stood out to me in this short chapter:
• Jesus is the truth. He is the truth personified. He is the source of truth and the reference point for evaluating all truth claims. That’s why if we get it wrong about Jesus, it doesn’t matter what else we get right. All truth has a center of gravity: Jesus Christ, who declared, “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). (page 38)
• The devil is a con man, always denying , revising, and spinning the truth, rearranging the price tags. (page 39)
• Truth is not about our own perceptions and desires. It is about reality. Many may agree that we would like gravity suspended tomorrow, but our vote would have no impact on reality. (page 39)
Wow! I found those to be some really strong and true thoughts! What do you think? Go back to Genesis chapter three and we can see the devil changing the Truth. Add any thoughts you wish. Have a blessed week!

  1. Praise the Lord, NO-ONE can change the truth, it always remains the truth but is not always wanted so is denied by many. I think every soul created has the truth put within it but because God also put “choice” also within us there are many who choose to follow their own ways. Maybe it’s that same problem that made some angels fall, wanting to be equal with God instead of being a child of God that he created us to be. Power is in TRUTH–not in our own grand revelations–AMEN?

  2. As I read your exerpts, I was thinking about how so many people seem to think that it is okay for them to just live a good life and do good. They are deceived in believing that this is enough! The truth is that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no one can have a relationship with God without believing this truth.
