JESUS IS THE TRUTH! Jesus told Pilate “I WAS BORN, AND ... CAME INTO THE WORLD, TO TESTIFY TO THE TRUTH” [Jn 18:37 NI]. Many find it strange that God sent Jesus to tell us the truth when God’s children of Israel had a whole bible full of God’s truth. Unfortunately they also had centuries of manmade laws and teachings that concealed the truth and confused people about the truth. Today, the same people of God continue to make up more rules and teachings. Before we criticize them we must recognize that Christians also have been making up rules and teachings for many centuries starting with the men who followed Jesus when He walked the earth and initially decided you had to be a Jew to be a Christian. Yes, God intervened with Peter and corrected that rule as recorded in the 10th Chapter of Acts but there have constantly been many more manmade teachings in the hundreds of years since. Instead of trying to tell Jews and people in the many Christian religions their incorrect teachings, the simple way is remember Jesus tells us “IF YOU OBEY MY TEACHING … YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE” [Jn 8:31-32 GN]. The truth Jesus came to bring us is simple, if we just listen to what He teaches us and obey Him, we will be free of all manmade confusion. Do you follow the truth of Jesus?
