To Love in the Truth

Night Sky Flashlight

The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth: for the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.” (II John 1:1-2)

The Evangelical church is known for its emphasis on “love”. Whatever love may mean.

Emphasizing whatever popular Humanistic and Progressive concepts about love that the Christian academics are feeding the leadership of our local churches. As they call Christians to be activists and socially-engaged Christians.

All in the name of “love. 

And, while that observation may sound cynical, the reality is, there is no real way to define love.

Along with that emphasis on love is a great resistance to place any boundaries or limits on what love actually allows us to do. And not do.

Instead, love has become a kind of excuse that is used whenever there is any argument that involves truth or doctrine.

Love is used as an excuse to shut down any debate or concern over whether we are teaching and believing what the Bible actually says. Whether we are truly following the specific things Jesus actually taught us to believe.

When a man believes what God has said in His word, repents of his sins, and places His faith in the sufficiency of Jesus Christ, he is saved. He passes from death to life.

Specifically, on the written words of God.

The Beginning of Knowledge

Tyrannosaurus Skeleton Mouth

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

This verse surprised me.

I’ve read through Proverbs many times in my life. But I’ve always thought it only said, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Which it does, in fact, say in Proverbs 9.

But, the fear of the LORD also applies to knowledge. Which touches on a whole different kind of understanding.

And it occurred to me that all the hoopla that men have for the pursuit of science, is based on a false premise.

Which is, that the pursuit of knowledge, or science, is the same as the pursuit of Truth. Truth that encompasses physical reality. Or all that is true about the natural world.
