Revolutionary Truth

Originally published in June 1996.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father except through Me.”John 14:6.

This is a favorite verse of many teachers and preachers.There has been plenty said about Jesus being the Way.You can only get to heaven through Jesus.Not by works, not by status.The lesson of Jesus being the way is very important.

Jesus being the Life is also taught a lot.I know I have taught that a lot.I love the thought of life is more than what you get in heaven.Life is also here on earth.We don’t have to live by Satan’s rules which kill and destroy.We have abundant life—even in trials and tribulations we have a hope that brings life.I love this message!

The part of John 14:6 that is not often preached is Jesus being the Truth.In a world full of lies and deception, there is truth—bottomline and absolute truth.

“Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.This is the verdict:Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”John 3:18-19.

This is the verdict.The talk now is of what were you doing when the O.J. verdict was given.Years ago it was what were you doing when you saw man walk on the moon or when JFK was shot or even when the Challenger blew up.Now it has come to the O.J. verdict.Oh please.
