    (If you want To only view the Truth Quotes, scroll down.)

    Truth is not some subjective idea that each person can decide for themselves. Our opinions and even our beliefs are not what determines truth. Much of what we may read, listen to, or are told by others is not necessarily the truth and is oftentimes nothing more than someone’s opinion.

    In his book, “The Truth War”, John MacArthur wrote, “Truth exists outside of us and remains the same regardless of how we may perceive it. Truth by definition is as fixed and constant as God is immutable. That is because the real truth is the unchanged and unchanging expression of who God is; it is not our own personal and arbitrary interpretation of reality.”

    Pastor MacArthur goes on to write, “Truth and meaning are not determined by our intuition, experience, or desire. The true meaning of Scripture-or anything else, for that matter has already been determined and fixed by the mind of God. The task of an interpreter is to discern that meaning. And proper interpretation must precede application.”

    (John MacArthur, The Truth War)

    Our culture today enjoys extreme hypocrisy by saying there are no absolute truths which in and of itself is a claim of truth. Duh! And yet people accept this not because of sound reason, facts, or evidence, but because they want to be free of God and His authority.

    While some truths are hidden or hard to accept and understand, there are many obvious truths in plain sight that all people can see and understand. The issue is that people choose to accept a comforting lie instead of a painful truth. And for that, we will be held accountable.

    If there is no God then we are not responsible to the lawgiver or the law and are free to do whatever we desire without being bothered by truth. It was this extreme hatred of God and His truth that drove men like Marx and Darwin to push for a godless ideology of hatred and insanity.

    For God`s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them.

    For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made.

    (As a result, people are without any excuses)

    “For though they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became worthless, and their senseless hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools.”

    Romans 1:18-22

    Just as many scientists today ignore real science in favor of supporting their ideology, the same holds for the ruling class of elites who create social justice, systemic racism, and cancel culture in an obvious effort to contaminate truth and reality.

    The misinformation and lies they teach and spread support their self-serving narrative which allows them to gain and maintain control and power. What we are seeing now is a result of an entire culture rejecting the revealed truth of God and accepting man’s lies.

    In his video lecture “How does truth command me”, R. C. Sproul said this; “The Myth of moral relativism is modern man`s attempt to create an ethical license for sin, to call evil good and good evil. “ (R.C. Sproul) While God rules with complete justice and equity, man only seeks to gain more power and wealth for himself and oppresses others using any means at his or her disposal.

    The masses are nothing more than pawns and pieces on the game board for these wicked people to use for their purposes.

    The more power men gain the more corruption they spread and history has proven this to be true. Truth is so very important in everything we think, say, or do. If we want to live a lie, we are free to do so, but not without consequences. It is not arrogance to believe the absolute truth when God says it is, no more than to believe in the reality of gravity.

    On the contrary, it is the pride of man in his sinful and limited knowledge to think he or she knows better or more than the God who is the “creator of all things whether seen or unseen”. The remainder of this post will be to share quotes about truth from many different authors just as a reminder and reference to the value truths have to all of us. Enjoy.

    Excerpts from John MacArthur’s sermon

    “Facing a Tolerant World with Intolerant Truth” Jan 1, 2023 gty.orgLINK

    “So just exactly what are we dealing with? We’re dealing with not necessarily a well-crafted theology—not like the liberalism of the past, not even like cults that are framed up in some kind of rational fashion. What we have is basically a rejection of the truth on just a generic level. It could be any truth. It could be the truth of the gospel or the truth of your gender. The situation that we’re in says there’s no absolute truth, there’s no absolute truth. That’s the current zeitgeist: no absolute truth.

    ‘Moral relativism comes along and says there’s no ultimate authority, nobody can tell you how to behave, morally. Personal freedom says there are no divine rules, and humanistic atheism says there’s no sovereign judge. No absolutes, no ultimate authority, no divine rules, and no sovereign judge. And that’s perfectly fine to the sinner. He likes that. That’s amiable to him because that’s natural to his fallen condition. So it’s easy to create a whole culture that thinks that way, because you already have an affinity to that kind of deception in every human heart.”

    Truth is objective. No person has truth in himself. In other words, you don’t determine truth, it all comes from God. That is a sweeping statement: It all comes from God. Whatever is true about the created world is true of the created world because God created it that way. Whatever is true about the spiritual world is true because that’s the way God designed it. No human being or human beings are the origin of any truth at all, ever. No human is the source of establishing truth.”

    “In Galatians 1, Paul says, “If an angel of God comes and says something other than the truth, don’t believe.” What someone thinks is true is irrelevant; that has nothing to do with whether it is true. There is no individual truth, there is only that which is true. And Scripture is God’s revealed truth.”

    This is where we know the spiritual realm, as to its truth. False religion devises lies and calls it truth. Mysticism says you can find your own spiritual truth. You hear people say, “Well I’m spiritual; I’m not religious. And I don’t go to church, but I’m spiritual.” That is meaningless.”

    “No truth has ever come by the will of man, 2 Peter 1:20. “All Scripture,” 2 Timothy, “is inspired by God.”

    “So all truth is from God. All truth is objective; it’s all outside of us. It would all be true if you never lived or had a thought or had an opinion.

    “Meaning is determined by the Creator and not by any human being. In no way is spiritual truth ever defined by someone’s experience. It’s not unique to an individual, it is universally true. And of course, this deals a heavy blow to a very large segment of professing Christianity, who are listening for the voice of God in their heads or seeking some kind of intuitive epiphany with the illusion the truth is out there, and if they listen they can hear it in an individual way.”
