Cleverly disguised as those who are offering truth, deceivers attempt to lead people away from the truth of Christ, and they’ve been doing so for over 2000 years. Using warnings from the Apostle John, Alistair Begg reminds us that deceivers can be identified by their view of Christ and the diversion of their teaching from Christ. When we are firmly grounded in the truth of God’s word, we will not so easily be led away.
Walking In The Truth
The notion that there is objective, verifiable, fixed, universal, and defined truth is obsolete today, and the very idea of anything “absolute” is under attack. This opposition to truth is not new, for 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. In the books of 2 & 3 John, the Apostle John warned the first century Church— and all believers — about these dangers. John’s concern, shared by every shepherd since, was to see his spiritual children not only acknowledge the truth of the Gospel, but to walk in obedience to that truth.
In this series, Alistair Begg challenges us to avoid a counterfeit Christianity as we prioritize and defend the truth of the Gospel. A genuine Christian walk will be marked by the integrity, humility, and generosity of a life lived in response to God’s love and grace.
