In the post-modern world we look for truth, and fine none, everywhere there is falsehood. Here in Psalm 25 we are told that it takes patients to learn God’s truth. We may have to wait all day long if necessary. This Psalm goes on to say that He is only going to teach the humble. [Psa. 25:9] Humility is also something that our post-modern world no longer values. We like braggarts and boasters. Our heroes in sports, entertainment, politics and religion are full of these showboaters. Truth is not in them.
They tell us the universe is millions of years old, based on assumptions that everything moves, progresses, or deteriorates at the same rate as is presently being observed. This uniformitarianism is undemonstrated and leads to young scientist who feel compelled to tow the established line of thought and not look for truth.
Our entertainers flaunt their sin and immorality, those that idolize them, often follow their lifestyle to their own destruction. They become slaves to a scandalous life which for the famous might make for good publicity, but the end there of is destruction.
The politicians claim that they are helping the poor, when in reality they are making it so that they will never be self sufficient. The people become slaves with only with enough money to have food and shelter, but never build assets. For this they must do as the government says. They must not get married, so all the children are bastards, who’s parents have no assets to set them up for a better life, so now the poverty continues for generations.
They all say the same thing. That we are now free from all those old fashioned social restrictions that generations before us lived by. However this is not truth.
All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. Psa. 25:10 KJV
There is that bothersome “covenant” word that the post modern Church wants nothing to do with. Neither do their braggadocios preachers, so the sinners have nothing to fear in going to church, as they will be told that such things have passed away. So they have no truth. Instead the preachers become taskmaster, inventing rules that are not in the Bible. They divide the one covenant into two or more covenants. There is one covenant for the Jews and a different covenant for the Gentiles, a covenant for their Tribulation, they have a new covenant for every occasion. However there is only one covenant, the promise of a Son, who would take away the sin of the world. It matters not whether one looks forward or backwards it is the same covenant. The only thing that was ever “new” about the covenant was its extension to the Gentiles.
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should repent. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfil it? Num. 23:19
The truth is He promised to give a Son, [Gen 15] and so He did. [Luke 2:11] No human could make such a promise. No ordinary Son could keep that promise.
Princes or princess’s often had their freedom sacrificed in the hope that their marriage would bring peace between one small group or another. If one goes back into pagan times there were even human sacrifices that were to bring peace. However there is only one Man who brought the truth of peace between man and God, and He paid for it with His own blood.
We think it unjust for one man to pay for anthers crime. But God’s way are not our ways. His truth is not always what we think of as truth.
“The Rock, his work is perfect; for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is he. Deut. 32:4
In this post-modern age we often get ourselves lost in the darkness of falsehood, a false notion in science, a false god, a false Jesus, a false religion. We forget to pick up the light of God’s word and turn that light on, and drive the darkness from our minds and souls, and fill our souls with the light of truth.
Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psa. 119:105
Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me, let them bring me to thy holy hill and to thy dwelling! Psa. 43:3
Our post modern Science, and our Theology have taken very bad turns. If one makes a false assumption, no matter how logical one proceeds through the proof, the conclusion will be false. All have made assumptions that are not based on any truth, causing many to go down paths that do not lead to further knowledge or enlightenment, but to death and destruction as all falsehoods do.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44
People have become enslaved to these false ideas, and teaching, because of this enslavement they follower their leader down these strange paths. We must fine the true path, for it lead to the holy hill.
Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jer. 6:16
. . . bring me to thy holy hill and to thy dwelling! Psa. 43:3b
Once having obtained truth, it is important to keep hold of it. Which bring us back to those ordinances?
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in thy ordinances. Psa. 119:43
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. John 14:15
So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good. Rom. 7:12
And by this we may be sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 1 John 2:3
He who says “I know him” but disobeys his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 1 John 2:4
Evolution has not one fact to back up their assumptions. Just as the Post-Modern Theologians have not one single verse to back up their claim that the law has passed away. They are both enslaving the people to falsehoods. Few speak up for fear they will be denounced by their peers.
Teach me thy way, O LORD, that I may walk in thy truth; unite my heart to fear thy name. Psa. 86:11
When we walk in truth people may enslave our bodies but they can never enslave out hearts and minds.
. . . and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32
