As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.

Being a Person of Truth

People love lies more than truth (Jeremiah 9:3, Psalm 52:3, Romans 1:18, 2 Timothy 4:4). Truth is gone (Isaiah 59:15). If we claim we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves and not living in the truth (1 John 1:8). How can we put away lying (Ephesians 4:25) and learn to tell the truth (Zechariah 8:16) as much as possible (Jeremiah 9:3)? How can we walk in the truth (3 John 1:4)? We must learn to love truth (Zechariah 8:19). Speaking the truth starts in the heart (Psalm 15:2). Learn to recognize the truth (Jeremiah 9:3). Truth is in the Bible (Daniel 10:21, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 2:15), Jesus (Matthew 22:16, John 14:6), the Gospel (Galatians 2:5), the church (1 Timothy 3:15). God wants us to worship him in truth (John 4:23) and the truth will set us free (John 4:23). Truth protects (Ephesians 6:14). The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth (John 16:13). Love rejoices in the truth (1 Corinthians 13:6).
