  • Tell the Truth: Having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another (Ephesians 4:25).
  • Teach the Truth: If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31–32).
  • Turn to the Truth: This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:3–4).


Some look to Experience

Oprah Winfrey

“Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”


Some look to REASON


“All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to understanding,
and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.”


Some look to INTUITION


“To continue believing in yourself ... believing whatever I
chose to believe in, that was the most important thing.”


GOD points to his word

Psalm 19:7–8

“The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes”



Matthew 7:24–27

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
