At a time when people are encouraged to “find your truth,” the church is called to hold fast to the enduring truth of the Christian faith. At the core of our community is not a shared hobby, political view, or culture. It is a shared commitment to and belief in the truth of the Christian faith. A bound set of doctrines that we as Christians confess and submit to as authoritative for our lives. In fact, Jesus reminds us that he is the way, truth, and life. We do not define truth but find it in the person and work of Christ.

I’m not satisfied when somebody tells me, ‘I just know in my heart that this is the right answer.’ We have to line up our beliefs with what the Bible actually says. If the Bible says I’m supposed to do something, then I’m supposed to do it. If the Bible says, I’m supposed to believe something, I’m supposed to believe it. If the Bible says act or think this way, then that’s how I should act and think. And so, I will not write off verses because I don’t like them, or they don’t suit the way I see the world.

The aim, as in all theological and biblical exploration, is not to replace love with knowledge. Rather, it is to keep love focused upon its true object. We must not make the overwhelming experience of God’s love revealed in the cross of Jesus an excuse for mere muddle. As in a marriage, love doesn’t stand still. A passionately devoted young couple needs to learn the long-term skills of mutual understanding, not to replace love, but to deepen it.
