Dangerous TRUTH

February 16, 2009

Have you considered that something as good and honorable as the truth could be dangerous?  That’s the truth, actually.  You see, Paul teaches us in Romans that indignation, wrath, tribulation, and anguish come upon every soul that disobeys the truth.

But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; (Romans 2:8-9)

These are the consequences of disobeying the truth.  Here again, the definite article designates truth as an all encompassing whole.  It makes us acknowledge that we should strive to obey all the truth.  And it makes the rhetorical question, “Which truths can be disobeyed?” quite powerful.

If it’s dangerous to disobey the truth, we should want to know and obey all truth.  There’s no middle ground with the truth.  Obey it and be blessed, disobey and have anguish.
