Real Love And Real Truth

1 John 3:18
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.ESV.

 

Love without Truth is not real love; and Truth without Love is not real truth. For Love and Truth is based on Reality. And Reality without God is a fantasy. For God is the author of Love and Truth.

Love and Truth are not a human creation. Humanity discovers Love and Truth in the world around them and through people. For Love and Truth are the backbone of God’s character. His divine nature exemplifies Love and Truth throughout His creation. When Reality is confirmed, truth is revealed.

Truth is not the perception of an individual nor the feelings of a group of people, but  the repeated outcome of history. Likewise Love is not just an act or feeling, but the servitude attitude of heart toward another person for their success and well-being turned into action.

When one comes to know God, then one also comes to know real Love and Truth. Truth with a capital “T” is a person known today as Jesus Christ. Truth with a small ‘t” are the divine values and principles built upon the Triune God’s character and displayed throughout the creation of the world.

If one wants to know what real Love and Truth is like, then one needs to do business with the Creator of Love and Truth. As a mutual relationship is built between you and HIM, you will come to know HIM better and better each day. You will then come to better discern between real Love and Real Truth because you will have come to know the author of Love and Truth.

Don’t be fooled by the artificial love and faddish truth expounded by this world’s humanistic systems. Instead study the Word of God as revealed in the Bible and come to know HIM who is Love and Truth.

Ignorance

“And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34 ESV

How do you handle ignorant people? Do you ridicule them? Do you condemn them? Or do you wave them away as stupid?

What did Jesus teach us?

When he was being crucified, he looked at the people initiating the act and forgave them. Though they were simply following orders, they had no knowledge of who Jesus was or that an innocent man was being condemned. Jesus didn’t eternally judge them. He didn’t threaten them. Nor did he belittle them. Instead he forgave them.

How about us? How do we respond? What will it take to forgive those who are ignorant of their actions toward us?

Ignorance is bliss for the self only because God’s grace is being extended to you. Otherwise, ignorance causes one to miss out on life’s good things. When ignorance is replaced with true knowledge, Reality takes charge. From Reality one can build on a sure foundation. Otherwise one is living a lie built on a shifting foundation that will eventually fail.

Forgiveness leads to repentance. So when ignorance loses its hold, God’s love grows from the inside-out. Or as most eventually learn: Ignorance is bliss only until Reality takes over.
