Ministers of God have a responsility to tell the truth. For that to happen we must believe the truth, embrace the truth, live the truth, and communicate the truth.
To embrace truth means we must refrain from untruths. To teach truth we must expose untruths. To love truth, we must put away untruths.
Have we forgotten; John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
When ministers of God do not live the truth, we form a belief to dismiss the truth and trivialize the importance of truth. Then we give it to souls that we will have to answer for one day.
There will be a day that ministers of God will give account for each soul under their charge. Sobering but truthful.
Discipleship is putting off untruths and putting on truth. To profess truth but hide the truth or suppress the truth is a deceitful action. Even mercy and truth are connected. Psalm 61:7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, [which] may preserve him.
We are to be the people of spirit and truth, in ALL things. The truth must be spoken in love for the benefit of souls.
Men of God we must be stirred by idolatry to be Apostolic.
Acts 17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
Truth Is Not Unloving!
