says: “Buy the truth, and do not sell it.” How much do you value the truth? This verse teaches you to exert whatever effort is necessary to obtain truth; and having obtained it, do not give it up no matter what the cost!

 

 

             Throughout history, many people have paid supreme prices for truth. Many Old Testament prophets were imprisoned, tortured, and even slain because they stood for the truth. All but one of Jesus’ apostles were killed for preaching the true gospel. And surely the greatest example of one who paid the price for truth is Jesus Christ Himself. When asked whether He was the Christ, the Son of God, Jesus affirmed it to be true. And it cost Him His Life.

 

 

Some people do not even care enough to study to learn the truth. In America, spiritual truth is easily available. It is found in the Bible, which is God’s word, John 17:17John 17:17

. The Bible is found in nearly every home, and can be purchased in every city. But many people are not willing to study the Bible to learn the truth. Other people may know the truth, but are afraid to take a stand. Unlike faithful men in the Bible, many people will fail to stand for the truth if someone just makes fun of them a little bit.

 

 

             What happens to people who do not have a love for truth? 2 Thessalonians 2:10-122 Thessalonians 2:10-12

10 y con todo engaño de iniquidad para los que se pierden, por cuanto no recibieron el amor de la verdad para ser salvos. 11 Por esto Dios les envía un poder engañoso, para que crean en la mentira, 12 a fin de que sean condenados todos los que no creyeron a la verdad, sino que se complacieron en la injusticia.

says those who do not love the truth will perish, because they will “believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

 

 

            But for those who love the truth enough to study diligently and learn it, Jesus said: “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” John 8:32John 8:32
