In today’s world I could tell someone that I’m a blue monkey, and they would probably agree with me. They would likely respond with something like, “Whatever your truth is, I accept and affirm it.” That is absolute nonsense.
Most people are agreeing with this type of absurdity because they fear appearing judgmental, or they believe they are exhibiting acceptance and compassion. But affirming someone who is confused or deceived is not compassionate. It’s cowardly and selfish.
ruth is not subjective. Truth is not an opinion, and truth is not a feeling. In John 14:6 (NKJV), Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.” Jesus just said He is the truth. The definition of truth means “that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.” It also means “the quality or state of being true.” When someone affirms another person’s confusion, they give validity to a feeling or opinion that is keeping that person in darkness and confusion.
If you are struggling with this kind of emotional confusion, you must reject the deceptive voices that claim to agree with you.
You must turn your whole heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. Sincerely come to Him and ask for His help. God will guide you into what is good and right for you if you’re willing to turn from your ways, turn from sin and surrender your life to Him. This only happens when we place our faith in Jesus Christ alone to save us. His sinless blood was shed to wash us clean from every sin, every mistake and every failure.
In John 8:31-32, Jesus said, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Knowing the truth brings freedom.
You’ll never experience real peace and freedom as long as you push the truth away. You will remain confused and lost, eventually becoming hopeless. You may experience fleeting periods of so-called happiness, but those feelings will be short-lived. You may even put on the facade of a carefree life, but inside you will be empty, hurting, and full of despair.
Only Jesus Christ loved you enough to suffer a horrible death on the cross and pay for all your sin. Every single person is born in sin and continues to sin throughout his or her life. Sin separates us from God. Jesus died, was buried and rose from the dead, conquering death, hell and the grave. He came to save that which was lost. He came to save your life, not destroy your life. Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus came to give you life more abundantly. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can give you real peace, comfort, help, freedom and hope.
Have you been confused by Satan’s lies? Jesus warned us in John 8:34, saying, “Most assuredly I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.” The world says you are free when you do whatever feels good, but the reality is, you become a slave to your sin. Jesus said of Himself, “If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36).
