Truth Divides!

Jesus prays:
Sanctify them{set them apart} in the truth; Your word is truth.Jn 17:17

Jesus says:
If you continue to follow my teaching(Word/doctrine), you are really my disciples …
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.Jn 8:31-32

Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.Mt 10:34

John 3:21 The one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.

Truth(doctrine) does divide! {This is a good thing!}
=> It separates the true disciples from the world
=> It separates from error
=> It separates from darkness

Notice also that false teaching/doctrine should cause division …
Be careful who you listen to and stand with!

Romans 16:17-18 NASB … Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions(divisions) and hindrances contrary to the teaching(doctrine) which you learned, and turn away from them. 18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.

1John 4:4-6Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. …
… 4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears{listens to} them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Mark 4:23-25If any one has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend.

24 And He[Jesus] said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. 25 For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force] …

Jesus prays=Sanctify them{set them apart} in the truth-Your word is truth. –Jn 17:17=>Be careful who you stand with!
Only 2 choices=TheSpirit ofTruth or the spirit ofError(the world)=>Choose wisely-He who has ears will hear theTRUTH!

    One can “speak the truth” without loving but one can’t “love” without “speaking the truth.”

    Love without truth is deception while truth without love is still truth.

    Love is essential as it opens the door for truth, affirms the truth and authenticates the truth; but it is the truth that will “set you free.”
