Moveable Truth

Jesus said, "I am the truth..." The Bible also tells us that Jesus is the same, "yesterday, today, forever." That means that the truth is the same yesterday, today and forever. It does not change like shifting shadows according to customs and fashions of the day. The truth of the Gospel is as true today as it ever was. God is still holy. We still have not measured up to His standard. Jesus died for our sins 2000 years ago. That is an accomplished fact, so that cannot change. Putting a different spin on it doesn't change the reality of its happening. Jesus rose from the dead -- that is also a fact, and changing our thinking on the resurrection to 'spiritualize' it doesn't change the fact that it really did happen.

Those who adhere to the firmly established truth of Jesus Christ, his divinity as the Second Person of the Trinity, his death by which he bore the wrath of God that we rightly deserve, and his defeat of death forever in his physical resurrection, are standing on solid ground. Those who think we must change or dilute what for the past millenia has been accepted as fact, for the sake of relevance or inclusivity, are like someone trying to stand on a beach ball in the middle of a swimming pool.
