In the political debates of today, it is all too common for politicians and members of the media to argue for their side using only the facts they like instead of representing the whole truth. It doesn’t take much to find facts to support any stance today, but just because one or two facts may point to one’s conclusion, doesn’t make it so. However, this type of debate is not only found in politics. In the Church, there are some who believe things about Jesus and God that are not so. Case in point, have you ever heard someone say, “My Jesus wouldn’t do this...or that...” When we try to define Jesus to suit our own preferences of what we’d like him to believe, we actually are turning from our true Savior and building a false idol whom we just name Jesus. There is only one Jesus and He is perfectly righteous and holy — something we all are not. Thus, redefining Biblical truth to suit our own preferences is a form of idol worship. Today, commit to following the perfect Word of God in the Bible rather than what we may see or hear about it from other sources.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” — John 14:6 NIV
