Speak the Truth, the Whole Truth

PrintTruth that is missing important components of what makes it the Truth, is no longer the Truth. It’s like giving someone a formula to which you know the correct answer, but you erase a couple of the numbers that make up the formula before asking them to solve it. What happens? It causes the respondent to either a) become frustrated and confused, or b) fill in numbers of his own to come up with his own answer.

I know that many Christians think some truth is better than no truth . . . but why don’t we give it to them straight, rather than side-stepping components that might be offensive (like Jesus is the only way to heaven, and there is a hell for those who choose otherwise). Eventually, they’re going to find out anyway (or at least, I would hope that would be the case if they’re attending a real bible-believing Christian church) and if that’s the deal breaker, they should have been told right from the git-go, rather than wasting their and your time playing stupid spiritual games.

If, on the other hand, the popularity of an event is primarily because “Christians” just want to be entertained by a water-downed version of a Jesus that somewhat resembles the one they think they know, then that’s a whole other problem in and of itself.

About Cheri Henderson

Cheri (Gale) Henderson, a resident of Waynesville, Ohio, acknowledged Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of her life on April 11, 1983. She became a new creation that day, old things passed away and all things became new, and now she lives to bring Him glory. She loves to worship her Savior and she also longs for all men to be saved. Much of her poetry is a reflection of her new heart. She began writing "Lyrics for the Lord" (http://cherihenderson.wordpress.com) the week after she dedicated her life to Christ, and is now a published writer in Billy Graham's "Decision" magazine, many other Christian magazines and periodicals around the world, and most recently, the book "Divine Stories of the Yahweh Sisterhood". Her prayer is that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the words that flow from her pen will permeate the hearts of all who read them, and that lives will be changed forever for the glory of God! "Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit" (II Corinthians 2:17), therefore, you may use any of the poetry displayed herein freely and non-exclusively, for non-profit purposes only (and as long as the author credit remains intact), to perform, broadcast, display or print in complimentary newsletters, church bulletins or the like.
