“The Gospel is true whether we believe it or not.” Alistair Begg echoes Paul’s sentiment expressed in 1 Timothy 3:14-16 and stresses the responsibility of the Church to safeguard the truth by studying Scripture, obeying it, and living it out with conviction. God chose to reveal the mystery of godliness through the incarnation of His Son, Jesus Christ--- a mystery that remains veiled to those who are perishing, but is salvation to all who believe.
14I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, 15if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
He5 was manifested in the flesh,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.
