“Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.” Proverbs 23:23 KJV

Do You Really Want To Know The Truth?

I had spoken at a family conference and explained and illustrated Bible truths about how a parent can “turn around” a rebellious teen. A man came up to me and said, “How did you discover such amazing truths?” I replied, “The Bible is the mind of man’s Creator revealed to man. In the Bible God gave to man every key truth man would need to live human life. Our difficulty is in receiving and believing ALL of those truths. But each truth we believe opens up another set of truths. And each one of those opens up another set, etc. etc.”
            Many people have HEARD truth, but they don’t HAVE truth. When the Bible says, “Buy the truth, and sell it not” the emphasis seems to be that you have to do whatever you have to do to make the truth yours.
            Sadly, lots of God’s truth isn’t popular. So what do people do with truth they don’t like? They reject it. And they mock it! And they replace the truth with error which deceptively looks like truth but will not truly work to solve man’s problems.  But they don’t just lose the one truth they didn’t like. They also lose all the other truths they could’ve had if they had not rejected the one truth they rejected!
           One of the most wonderful things about truth is this: Anyone who will receive it can own it. There is jewelry I can look at but never own. But I can own the truth if I will just “buy” it. If I will simply accept and apply God’s truth, it can become my property.
           I wonder how many other truths man has lost since he has denied and mocked the foundational truth of all other truths: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) Think about it. If there is no accountability to the God who made us, then there is no right and wrong. If there is no sin, there is no salvation from sin. It is only a step from denying a Creator made us to denying that Creator sent His Son Jesus to die for us.

Will you “buy the truth”?

-Pastor S.M. Davis
Park Meadows Baptist Church

Creationism vs evolution:
faith and fact?

It's confusing and difficult to make an honest assessment on the subject of how everything came into being. There are two proposed ways of looking at it -- either everything was created by a pre-existing being and was shaped by intelligence, or the stuff everything is made of has always existed and just takes on different forms by chance.

Lincoln Churches Come Together in Action

Community action of some kind is commonplace inside most churches. But for the first time in Lincoln, 11 churches -- and that number is anticipated to grow to more than 15 -- have banded together to create the campaign "Together for Lincoln." This unified action will involve all participating churches being committed to working together to serve the community, from building wheelchair ramps to visiting the homebound.

Absolute truth vs. situational truth
Here Am I, SendMe

In America and much of the world, absolute truth has been replaced by the myth of situational truth. Situational truth allows the circumstances at the time to dictate behavior or to be more important than real truth.

My SecretSin
Here Am I, Send Me

Fond memories remain of a young boy's weekly trek with his mother to downtown Lincoln. This was before shopping centers. The two of them would make their way around the square, which then contained shops with every kind of item needed, ending at the A&P grocery store.

Living With Regret
By Ronald K. Denlinger

An error in judgment can result in a lifetime of regret. It isn't required that there be any intentional harm to another in order for us to carry sorrowful thoughts about our actions. Each of us looks back at things we've done, and we wish for just a moment in which we could have made a different decision. If only we had thought more carefully about the potential consequences. If only we had taken a slightly different course.
