Can We learn the Truth ?

John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Obey the gospel - live Christian life

Be Sure, Understand

Agnosticismcontradicts theBible

John 8:32 Ye shall know the truth

II Pet. 3:18 “grow in knowledge”

Deut.29:29 “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever,”

2 Pet. 3:16 “some things hard to be understood”

2 Tim. 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
