“Truth is truth. It’s unbending in that way. Reality is what you run into when you’re wrong. Y’know, some of you want to think that what you believe makes something true or false. It’s true or false regardless of what you believe about it. Truth is unbending in that way. You remember what they said, ‘God said it, I believe it, and that settles it’? No, God said it and that settles it whether you believe it or not.” —Steve Cobb, pastor in The Most Worthy Struggle (Feb. 2011)
Although I believe the Old and New Testaments are truth and Jesus Himself claimed to be the way, the truth and the life, I do not claim that everything I understand and believe is truth. I am still studying and learning, casting off old traditions that leave questions and don’t square up, and holding fast to those that through study, application and experience I am convinced are solid.
