Food for Maturity

The principles of true Christianity are not a collection of doctrines of men, but the reasonings of what is true, what is right, and what is after the nature of the only God. And if we believe right, we will live right.

This page is for a collection of posts for those who will use reason to discover the deeper wonders of God and self, by learning and applying the truth found in scripture. We are to gain understanding not by being impressionable, believing what men of status purport; but, by holding everything that is presented to us to the light of God’s Word1, and if we are willing to obey what truth we learn, God will give us the understanding. If we are not willing, He will permit the veil to remain over our hearts2. We are to keep what is found to be true and discard whatever is false. The Principles of Discerning Truth ought to be applied to everything that is presented to us to believe.
