We have heard the courtroom mantra, 'the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.' Behavior shows that many shy away from 'nothing but the truth'!
If we are going to search for truth, we should not be seeking it in the philosophies of men, but rather in the fullness of truth found in God's revelation.
The veracity of the Scriptures is something we can take to the bank, in essence our only protection against the torrent of deception we face today.
We must analyze and evaluate everything that enters our minds from the media sources that primarily promote a leftist, secular humanist agenda.
Martin Collins suggests that the Pastoral Epistles, emphasizing order, conduct, and appointing sound-minded leaders, generally had more to do with practical matters than with doctrine, focusing upon spiritual principles rather than physical ritual.
