Excerpted from CARM.ORG – “In order for truth to be defined properly, it would have to be a factually and logically correct statement.  In other words, it would have to be true.  But, perhaps we could look further at truth by determining what it is not.  Truth is not error.  Truth is not self-contradictory.  Truth is not deception.  Of course, it could be true that someone is being deceptive, but the deception itself isn’t truth.

In relativism, all points of view are equally valid and all truth is relative to the individual.  If this were true, then it would seem that this is the only truth relativism would have to offer.  But, the problem is that in reality, relativism isn’t true for the following basic reason.  If what is true for me is that relativism is false, then is it true that relativism is false?  1) If you say no, then what is true for me is not true and relativism is false.  2) If you say yes, then relativism is false.  Relativism seems to defy the very nature of truth; namely, that truth is not self-contradictory.”

Living a Spirit filled life,  means living in truth,  standing firm,  letting love guide you.


Joh 14:6 NASB  Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

 John 3:14 (NIV) [Jesus:] “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up.”

 John 6:40a (NIV) “For my father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life.”

 John 6:29 (NIV) Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

 Proverbs 14:12 (NIV) There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

 Ephesians 4:17-24 (NIV) So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off the old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Ephesians 2:1-3 (Phi) You were spiritually dead through your sins and failures, all the time you followed this world’s ideas of living, and obeyed the evil ruler of the spiritual realm, who is indeed fully operative today in those who disobey God. We all lived like that in the past, and followed the desires and imaginings of our lower natures, being, in fact, under the wrath of God by nature, like everyone else.

 Galatians 5:16 (NIV) So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

 Phi 4:9 NASB  The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

 Col 2:8 NASB  See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

 Gal 5:1-26 NASB  It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.  (2)  Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you.  (3)  And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law.  (4)  You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.  (5)  For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness.  (6)  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.  (7)  You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?  (8)  This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you.  (9)  A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.  (10)  I have confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.  (11)  But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished.  (12)  I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselves.  (13)  For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.  (14)  For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”  (15)  But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.  (16)  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.  (17)  For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.  (18)  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.  (19)  Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,  (20)  idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,  (21)  envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  (22)  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  (23)  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  (24)  Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.  (25)  If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  (26)  Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.

 Psa 71:1-24 NASB  In You, O LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed.  (2)  In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; Incline Your ear to me and save me.  (3)  Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come; You have given commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress.  (4)  Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the grasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man,  (5)  For You are my hope; O Lord GOD, You are my confidence from my youth.  (6)  By You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother’s womb; My praise is continually of You.  (7)  I have become a marvel to many, For You are my strong refuge.  (8)  My mouth is filled with Your praise And with Your glory all day long.  (9)  Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.  (10)  For my enemies have spoken against me; And those who watch for my life have consulted together,  (11)  Saying, “God has forsaken him; Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to deliver.”  (12)  O God, do not be far from me; O my God, hasten to my help!  (13)  Let those who are adversaries of my soul be ashamed and consumed; Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor, who seek to injure me.  (14)  But as for me, I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.  (15)  My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And of Your salvation all day long; For I do not know the sum of them.  (16)  I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.  (17)  O God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous deeds.  (18)  And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.  (19)  For Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?  (20)  You who have shown me many troubles and distresses Will revive me again, And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.  (21)  May You increase my greatness And turn to comfort me.  (22)  I will also praise You with a harp, Even Your truth, O my God; To You I will sing praises with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.  (23)  My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; And my soul, which You have redeemed.  (24)  My tongue also will utter Your righteousness all day long; For they are ashamed, for they are humiliated who seek my hurt.
