the Absolute Truth
Period. Full Stop. by
Pastor John Hamel
“Jesus said… I am the Way, the
Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14:6)
Notice that Jesus did not claim to
be one of many truths. He said He is THE Truth. Period.
He did not claim to
be one of many ways to God. He said He is the ONLY Way to God. Period. No
hemming, no hawing, no foot shuffling, no soft-soaping.
Just the facts.
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the
Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” Can you handle it? Some can’t.
Many liberal-minded people are heard
to say, “Truth? Don’t be ridiculous. There is no absolute truth. There is no
such thing as black and white. Whatever will be, will be, and there’s not a
thing in the world anyone can do to alter their fate or destiny!”
“Oh yeah?” I responded to one of
them, “Then why don’t you get up on the freeway, put your car on cruise
control and close your eyes? Whatever will be, will be. I’ll tell you why
you don’t. It’s because you do believe in absolutes. You do believe in
black and white. Driving with your eyes closed will absolutely kill you!”
People “choose” to deny the reality
of “absolutes” and “black and white” because they don’t want to accept
responsibility for their sinful lifestyles. They don’t want to believe that
there is such a thing as “accountability.” They love darkness more than
they love the light and set up make-believe standards of measure to
accommodate their sinfulness. (John 3:19)
This, however, does not change the
Truth of God’s Word and the Truth of Jesus Christ.
Jesus not only is the Truth, He
always spoke the Truth. Jesus told the Truth about human beings. He said
that man was full of sinful behavior such as pride, foolishness, sexual sin
and base wickedness. (Mark 7:21-27)
