References: 3+John 1The notion that there is objective, verifiable, fixed, universal, and defined truth is obsolete in our culture today. Contemporary philosophical thought sets itself in opposition to that which is regarded as definitive and certain, and the very idea of anything "absolute" is under attack. This opposition to truth is not new, however. In every generation when the truth of Jesus Christ is declared and proclaimed, the Evil One works to undermine it and sow seeds of confusion. From the first century, to our world today, and with succeeding generations will come deceivers who try to turn true believers away from this truth, seeking to make them adapt and accommodate themselves to the deceivers' heretical views, ultimately abandoning the gospel altogether. In the books of 2 & 3 John, the Apostle John warns the first century church and all believers since about these dangers. Rather than avoiding truth, he speaks of the absolute and universal truth that has been embodied in Jesus, the gospel that has been written down and left to us in the Bible by the apostles to be transmitted into the hands of another generation. And yet, John's concern, and every shepherd's concern since, is to see his spiritual children not just acknowledge this truth philosophically but to walk in this truth and its resulting love. In our study, "Walking in the Truth," Alistair Begg discusses the importance of the truth of the gospel and teaches us how to defend this truth. More importantly, your mind will be stirred by the truth, and your heart will be seasoned increasingly by the love of which the truth speaks.
