Exodus 34:5-6 • And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. • And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, • Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. • And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.
A God of Truth • He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. (Deut 32:4)
A Savior of Truth • Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6) • And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? (John 8:45-46)
The Spirit of Truth • Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you (John 14:17). • Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13).
God Exists • Life comes from life and that of the same kind. • Effects demand anterior, superior causes (Heb. 3:4). • In order for their to be something, their must have always been something. • Matter is not eternal, something beyond the material. • God is good in order for their be right/wrong good/evil their must be an absolute good. • If only human (how did the humans get here)? • If only human no human can say what is right or wrong for another human.
Things Exists • Things exists • Things are identifiable (God labeled things). • Things are distinguishable from other things • Trees (Gen. 1:11) • Sun, moon, stars (Gen. 1:14) • Birds and fish (Gen. 1:20-21) • Beasts of the field, creeping things (Gen 1:24) • Humans (Gen. 1:26-27) • Rivers, precious metals, dirt (Gen. 2:10-14)
We Choose • Actions are personal. • Actions can be determined. • Actions can be judged as right or wrong. • And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? (Gen. 3:9-11)
