Influential Truth

For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.

2 Corinthians 13:8

I can’t speak for the rest of the world, but truth is being challenged consistently in much of the western world at even the most basic level what it means to be a man or a woman. How should we respond when truth is challenged? Let’s start considering this quote –

All God’s truth is powerful. God’s truth of whatever kind is much more powerful than the Devil’s lies. Do you believe that, or are you a pessimist? Do you think the Devil is stronger than God? Do you think lies are stronger than the truth? The Christian believes that truth is stronger than lies, and God is stronger than the Devil.

John Stott

As Paul wrote in the verse above, we have only one option. There is clarity in the truth of Scripture and so we can stand only for the truth, no matter the consequences. Regarding the topic of men and women, the Bible tells us that “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (Genesis 2:27).

And so, we stand for truth. As Stott reminds us, “if we are pessimists and think we are capable of doing nothing in society today, I venture to say that we are theologically extremely unbalanced, if not heretical and harmful. It’s ludicrous to say Christians can have no influence in society.”
