TRUTH...or dare

TRUTH...what is truth?

In today's society, it is hard to be able to know what is true and what is not true. The news proves this to us each day.
The weather report says sunshine but it rains.
The Dow Jones reports a decline in what your broker promised to be good.
Politicians breaking pre-election promises.

If truth be told, it is not only hard to find truth on our news channel, but in our workplaces, in our homes and sometimes, sadly enough, in our churches.

broken promises
people not keeping their word
teaching against God's Word

I am blessed to be part of an awesome church that DOES teach God's Word, but I was reminded this week that not everybody has this freedom. All you have to do is turn on the TV and see some TV preachers teaching that the way to heaven is thru works or to guarantee your salvation just send them a hundred bucks!

TRUTH must know the Truth in order for it to set you free!

The TRUTH is that salvation is not any thing that you can earn! In fact the debt has already been paid. Salvation is free and it is as easy as BELIEVING, ASKING and RECEIVING. That's right Believe on Jesus Christ and that He died on a cross for you, so that you can have eternal life. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins, repent and then receive His promise of eternal love, forgiveness and peace.

TRUTH ... you may not recognize it in your world today but the Truth is not found in our world but found in Jesus Christ!

Have you opened up the book of Truth today? .... go ahead, I dare you!
