There is growing alarm among many in the Body of Christ that few people in the Church today have a true grasp of Scripture. Much of what people believe is a smorgasbord of ideas pulled from the Bible as well as many other places. Many honest Christians don’t even recognize that their views have been tainted by Freud, Darwin, Marx and others. And the reason those believers don’t realize how much impact those other sources have had is simple: they don’t really know the Bible.
In his letter to the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul said, “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might” (Ephesians 6:10). He then goes on to give specifics of how to do that. If you are familiar with this section of Scripture, you may recall that it’s all about putting on the armor of God. I find it interesting to note that the first thing mentioned that we’re to put on is “the belt of truth.”
Truth is not, as our society would suggest, a relative idea. The Word of God gives us Truth on which we can base our lives.
