The truth will set you free

John 8:32 says, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” God wants His people to live in truth and speak the truth. I believe that we should never let people think that sin is ok. The bible never says that sin is ok. Romans 6:23, says “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If we don’t tell people the truth in love then we don’t actually love them.

Psalm 119:43 says, “Never take your word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws.” We are to lead people to Heaven, not hell. Some may not see it that way because sometimes the truth isn’t what they want to hear. The truth is not a popular subject. Compromise is NOT part of the truth. When you compromise, nobody wins and nobody gets what they are asking for or want. It is really a lose, lose. Co-existing is NOT part of the truth. God can NOT co-exist with sin. You either have God or you don’t. God is not a part of your sin, He’s apart from your sin. God wants us free from sin. That’s why He gave us the Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 23:23 says, “Buy the truth and do not sell it -wisdom, instruction, and insight as well.”  Sometimes the truth sounds harsh or intolerant. But, the truth is the truth. The truth hurts sometimes. It is always better to find out the truth sooner than later. All we can do is tell others and hopefully they will listen. It’s their choice. John 14:6 says, “Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except though me.”
