The Plain Truth

Spiritseid cross of Jesus Christ welcome banner for reading marker

The truth of life is simple. God who is love, God created, His creation fell and was dying, so God came to die in place of His creation, so we could live. The love, generosity, power, and grace of God is beyond anything we can understand. Yet what He gives us to eat is the simplest of the meat first, displaying His full wisdom and compassion. There is no need to guess. When asked why I spend my talents spreading the word, I will say the Lord took my sins and set me free and gave me life and the joy of His presence even though I didn’t deserve it. I’m not special or have a higher destiny/calling than anyone else. God gave grace freely for us to accept because he loves us, His name is Jesus Christ, and we can tell what He has done for us and speak on the gospel because we believe in Him as God’s offering & sacrificial lamb, for all of us as told in the book of Isaiah 49:6. All for the sake of God’s great name and unfailing love.

1st Corinthians chapter 2 verse 7 says “we declare God’s wisdom,” and God’s wisdom is declared for all of mankind to accept. John the Apostle tells us about the angel flying through the air with the eternal gospel shouting in a loud voice in Revelation 14:6-7, “fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.” And so, we evangelize the truth of the whole gospel, “Jesus Christ crucified” (1st Corinthians 2:2).

The whole gospel of is built upon that foundation of Jesus Christ’s prophecy, testimony, and crucifixion and resurrection. Anyone who evangelizes the word of God in order to spread the gospel will tell you this. And while we shout come as you are to worship him in truth and in spirit, Jesus reminds us of what is required when we come to him. To be willing to give up our sins in order to follow him. Feel free to use our contact page to discuss.

In the book of Matthew chapter 16 verse 14, Jesus says “If anyone wants to be my disciple, they must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me”. That is the truth. Everyone is welcome to accept salvation, regardless of how you’ve chosen to live your life. We have all sinned according to Romans 3 verse 23. And no sin is better or worse, all sin is an abomination to the Lord. So we evangelize the gospel without showing partiality to one sin over another. And therefore we speak to all, according to the gospel, to repent of your sins and accept Jesus in order to be set free from sin and given salvation. While we all come to Jesus with our sins and shame, when we submit to him everything we are and live our lives in Christ, everything begins to change and we become who God calls us to be in Christ.

And while we are allowed to say anything we want, those who truly love God remembers Jesus’ words to the scribes and Pharisees of his day in the book of Matthew 23 verse 15: “Woe to you, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! You travel across land and sea in order to win one convert, and when you succeed you make that one twice as much a child of hell as you are”. As we speak, we must tell the whole truth because we love God and are compelled to speak the truth without bending the gospel to fit any other narrative than the will of God. While we are all sinners reformed, if we bend the gospel in order not to offend sinners, we may as well put the Bible away and say we don’t believe a word. We evangelize the unvarnished truth so who will be convicted by the Holy Spirit to repent will, because the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes, according to Psalms 19 verse 8. So we evangelize the plain truth, because the word of God is perfect and able to convert those whom the Holy Spirit convicts, making them a new creation according to the gospel written in 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 17. Hit up our contact page if you need clarification on anything.

2nd Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17 reminds us that in Christ we become a new creation (person). Your old life is gone (died at baptism), and a new life has come (by the Holy Spirit). And in Titus we are told 2:7 to set an example by doing what is good, that in our teaching we are to show integrity and sincerity. The way people see us living is our first testimony to them, regardless of circumstances or maturity, and then when we speak our mouth should match our actions. A gift of Jesus Christ who changes our hearts from our self-seeking lusts to Spirit sowing beings. When we speak the truth in love to those we testify to, we are memorializing the works Jesus Christ has done in us, giving our full testimony. So we must tell the whole truth, even beginning from what the Lord has done for us, to the truth of the full gospel, in the humility and gentleness of Christ as appealed in 2nd Corinthians 10:1.

By telling the simple truth rather than lying to win members, we set an example of truth from the start. We also allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in the heart of the hearer, and we disarm the lies digested by the heart while sin is still present, as 2nd Corinthians 10 verse 14 explains. Those who spread the gospel in love know that we speak from the testimony God has given us, so when we are questioned we turn to the gospel knowing that the truth is there, knowing that by speaking the truth, in meekness and in love to those who listen to us; our words spoken by the Spirit will allow a soul to make a decision to deny their fleshly desires and follow Jesus, just as we were allowed to do when we heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.
