Bible

 

 

12. I don’t feel at all wounded by your words. Each one has his own opinion and must not force the others to have the same opinion. It is true, perhaps you are right and I am wrong, yet until I am not convinced I will keep my opinion. How can you say that only you have known the truth? Who says to you that God (if He exists) cannot lie?

 

 

 

First of all, I would like to tell you that I don’t think at all I am the only one who has known the truth, there are many people belonging to all races and tongues who have known the truth. Therefore, these persons also can say that they have known the truth. Why? For they have known the One who is the truth, that is, Jesus Christ, for He Himself said: “I am …. the truth” (John 14:6). And this is confirmed by the apostle John who says to us that have believed in Jesus Christ: “I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth” (1 John 2:21). Of course, this confidence is of God, and not of ourselves, who sent His Holy Spirit in our hearts who testifies that “the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:6) and that we are in the truth.

I understand that my words may seem to you incomprehensible or very simplistic, yet they are true.

Who says to me that God cannot lie? The Bible, for it is written that God “cannot lie” (Titus 1:2), and also that “God is not a man, that he should lie” (Numbers 23:19). That’s why the Bible states: “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). There are many proofs confirming this. One proof for all, whoever believes in the Son of God receives remission of sins and eternal life, as the Word of God says. I myself am a living proof which confirms that God did not lie and cannot lie because by faith in Jesus Christ my sins were blotted out and I received eternal life. Furthermore I have experienced many times the truthfulness of God; the time would fail me to tell of the many times I have had a proof of the fact that God cannot lie.
