Telling The Truth Is Love
By David J. Stewart | June 2015 | Updated January 2016
“And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.”
Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” —Apostle Paul
As a born-again Christian, I tell the truth through my online ministry. I do what I do because I love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to help others find the truth. There is nothing more important in life than the truth, which is why the mainstream newsmedia go to great lengths to distort the truth, deceiving the public masses. Most Americans have a distorted viewpoint of reality, woefully brainwashed. Satan is the father of all liars and murderers (John 8:44), and he is more crafty and subtle than you could ever imagine (2nd Corinthians 11:13-14).
Satan has succeeded by infiltrating the churches with Satanic counterfeit Bible versions and a false plan of Lordship Salvation. 2nd Corinthians 11:13-14, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” Satan is so clever that most pastors today have been deceived, buying into the lie that we need an “easier-to-read” Bible version. The truth is that in exchange for something easier-to-read, the newer versions are impossible to comprehend as far as truth, because occultists deliberately corrupted them to creep spirituality into the churches in place of theology. All of the new Bible versions pervert what it means to “REPENT.”
All the new Bible versions attack Christ's deity, remove the word “Godhead,” and diminish Jesus' preeminence. What better way to destroy the churches than to change the truth of the Word of God into a lie. Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” I am your friend, and I love you in the Lord whoever you may be, which is why I am telling you THE TRUTH!!!
All You Need is God's Love
This sinful and crazy world doesn't know what true love really is. Love is not a feeling. Infatuation is not love. Feelings can and do often change. We hear a lot of talk and singing about “love” from the Godless world, but they do not know true love. The Beatles were commissioned in 1967 to write and perform the world renowned song, “All You Need Is Love,” but they haven't the foggiest clue of what love really is. ...
“All You Need Is Love” is a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was first performed by the Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link. Watched by over 400 million in 25 countries, the programme was broadcast via satellite on 25 June 1967. The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the United Kingdom's contribution.
SOURCE: All You Need Is Love
It is true that all we need is love, if you have God's genuine love. The Bible teaches in Matthew 22:37-40, “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” There you have it... love God and love your neighbour. Hence, the two greatest commandments in the Holy Bible are really just one, that is, to LOVE!
Loving God and man is the motivation behind the Christian life! But you cannot do either unless you first let God love you!!! 1st John 4:19, “We love him, because he first loved us.” Have you allowed God to love you my friend? Loving God and loving the truth are virtually synonymous, because you cannot be right with God disregard the truth. Many of our churches are infatuated with love, but they don't care about the purity of God's Word, separation from the world, and upholding the truth.
We are told in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 that the masses of this world will be woefully deceived and worship the Antichrist, because they refuse to “LOVE THE TRUTH.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:10, “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” Truth is important. In fact, Jesus said that He came into the world to bear witness to THE TRUTH. John 18:37, “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”
The reason why so many Christians struggle with bitterness, unforgiveness and hated against others is because they have never let God truly love them. It is a matter of faith. If you receive God's forgiveness for your sins, then you have received God's love. Dwell upon the wondrous mercy of God and what He has done for you, and it will help you tremendously to love others unconditionally (Ephesians 4:30-32). I love others because I know God loves me. I let Him love me by thinking regularly about all the blessings of God in my life. The Holy Bible offers sweet peace through God's promises.
For example: Philippians 4:6-7 promises that if we'll bring our burdens to the Lord in prayer, and make our requests known to Him (which He already knows, Matthew 6:7-8), then we can claim the peace of God that passes all understanding. God is on the job! Once you present your supplications to God, then it is His business, and you have done your part as God commanded.
I want to please God to make Him happy. We should all want to make God happy, and Hebrews 11:6 says only BY FAITH can anyone please God. Faith is our obedience to His Word, believing that God's Word is His bond, and that He will keep His Word as promised.
The Beatles were synonymous with drug-abuse, alcoholism, wild sex-orgies, Communism, satanic false religion and rebellion against authority (anarchy). What The Beatles and their wicked generation defined as “love” was really hippie communes where everybody shared sex-partners and fornication was considered an acceptable lifestyle. In every case drug abuse was present (LSD, marijuana and cocaine were popular). The world's idea of love is to accept everyone who is immoral. Of course, God-fearing Christians are rejected and condemned as being “bigots” and “judgmental.” The world has no room for Bible preachers! Don Henley of the “Eagles” Rock 'n' Roll band calls Pastor Jerry Falwell (1933-2007) and like-minded preachers, “God's Bullies.” Henley is effectively calling God a bully.
The heathen world wants Christians to shut up about sin and evil, and to go along with the demoralization, corruption and homosexualization of our youth by the entertainment industry. The Eagles, like the Beatles, spent their career glorifying sin, Hell, substance abuse, the occult, sexual immorality and a life without God. Naked women came right up on stage during their concerts, giving their bodies as a sexual sacrifice to gods. The Beatles promoted Aleister Crowley, and the Eagles promoted Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan). They don't love their fans. They don't love God. They don't love you. They certainly don't love the youth that they destroy spiritually, leading them away from the Lord Jesus Christ and into a life of sin and pride. Rock music is the enemy of God. They don't fear God, but they will... THEY WILL!
The entire music industry is saturated with the occult. Interestingly, wicked king Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel chapter three of the Old Testament used music to signal when everyone was to bow in idolatry to his 90 x 9 foot golden image (an obelisk, the same image as The Washington Monument). The plan of a New World Order has been in the works for thousands of years since Satan attempted the tower and city of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9). The plot for World Government has existed since the beginning of humanity, because Satan desires to unite the world in rebellion against God, and to accept the Antichrist in place of Jesus Christ. It is happening now, today in 2016. The New World Order is quickly forming and will be complete by 2050 (if not much sooner). The pretribulation Rapture of the saints (the Church) is nearer than ever before, and must precede the appearance of the man of sin, the Antichrist, to the world (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). Love compels us as God's children to warn others with the truth about the New World Order.
How Truth is Commonly Perverted into a Lie
The lost world looks at all the pain, misery and death in the world and blames God, putting Him on trial for knowing that He is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing) and omni-present (all present), yet seems to do nothing about suffering and pain. Oh my friend, God is a good God. It was Adam's sin that allowed sin and death into the world (Romans 5:12). The serpent (Satan, Revelation 20:2) lied to Eve. It was a classic lie that involved wrapping a lie between two truths.
Genesis 3:3-5, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” In the preceding helpful key passage of Holy Scripture, there are TWO truths, and ONE lie. It was true that Eve's eyes would be opened. It was also true that she would become “a god,” in the sense of knowing good and evil. Yet, the big lie was that they wouldn't die. When Eve finally ate the forbidden fruit, she didn't drop dead that day. Had God lied, Who said they would die that very day? Adam and Eve lived hundreds more years. But truthfully, they did die immediately when they sinned, spiritually.
In typical, crooked, used-car salesman, fashion, Satan promised Eve a better life where she would become as her own god, free to do as she pleased, knowing good from evil, and live forever. All she had to do was eat of the forbidden fruit which God warned them not to eat. When Eve found out she had been conned, she was horrified, discovering that she hadn't become equal with God at all; but rather, was now merely her own boss, with a freewill to do whatever she wanted (and to pay the price if she made the wrong choices). Eve found out the hard way that the serpent lied to her about not dying. It was a half-truth, a shady deal. Companies are infamous these days for this type of shady advertising. Politicians lie all the time. The newsmedia lies every day.
Although it was true that Eve didn't die that very day physically, she and Adam did die spiritually the moment they sinned. Consequently, they were ejected from the Garden of Eden permanently, never to return again. Whereas God has previously provided good meals for Adam and Eve to eat freely, without having to work for anything—now they had to labor in the sweat of their brow, toil long hours by sowing and harvesting crops, and endure the constant pricking of their fingers with the thorns of the plants of the earth, et cetera. Literally, Adam and Eve lost everything!!! It was Paradise lost, all because the Devil painted a rosy-picture of what sin could do to make Eve's life better and empower her. Sound familiar with the foolish hype from feminists today? It's the same Devil but a different generation. When will we ever learn as humans? The Devil's an old pro, because he's been doing this for a very long time.
Satan's favorite tactic to deceive people is to hide a LIE between two TRUTHS! This is why all pseudo-Christian cults (e.g., Seventh-day Adventism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Roman Catholicism, Church of Christ, Lutheranism and Christian Science) mix their lies with Christian lingo, making it difficult for unlearned people to decipher and expose. As Christians, it is our duty to refute all works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11).
The Unsaved World Puts God On Trial
Love is caring for and helping OTHERS, just as God cares about us and has blessed us so bountifully. 1st John3:16, “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” Man is selfish by nature. God wants us as Christians to let Christ's Holy Spirit live through us (Galatians 2:20). If there is any goodness in me, it is because of the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Man accuses God of lacking love. So to prove that He is a loving God, the Lord steps back out of sight and allows mankind to live freely, to enjoy all the splendors of this life, and without interference. Man is man's problem, not God. Consider all the delicious fruits, vegetables, meats, grains, delicacies, spices and blessings which God has given to us just in the world of food. We drink God's pure water. We breathe God's clean air. Who can deny God's goodness? Only an ungrateful person with a sinful heart would deny God's goodness. It is man's wickedness, greed and lack of concern that pollutes the water, air and food. That's the truth!
Perhaps you ask why a good God would allow a person to live a wicked life? Why does God allow the Devil, who is the embodiment of evil, to go around hurting others? Mankind has always accused God of being unfair. So God gives a person a lifetime to repent and come to Christ for forgiveness and salvation. 2nd Timothy 2:13, “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” I hear wicked men and women toy with God, making foolish statements, like David Bowie (1947-2016) who said, “I'm almost an atheist.” I can assure you that the second he arrived into Hell, Mr. Bowie was no longer an atheist!!! I heard Hollywood actor Robert De Niro (born 1943) say, “If there is a God he has a lot to answer for.” That is a wicked thing to say, rooted in arrogance. Who is Robert De Niro to put God on trial? Soon, we will all be in eternity and we'll find out who was right and who was wrong!
I often hear people blame God for the death of a loved one. Others blame God for the starving people in the world. I hear people accuse God of not loving man, of being arrogant and selfish. FOOLS! May I say, everything that God does is right!!! God is not to blame for anything!!! We make our own choices, and pay the price when they are wrong decisions. That is not God's fault. I feel sorry for the person who overlooks the thousands of abundant blessings from God in their life, and instead they blame and reject God for one bad thing in their life. Instead of praising God for all the wonderful things in life—the gift of delicious foods and the tastebuds to enjoy them, the gift of sight and seeing colors, the gift of hearing and music, the gift of children, the gift of life, and the health to enjoy it all—they prefer to focus on the few negative happenings in their life and blame their Creator. Talk about insanity!!!
People have a natural sinful tendency to focus on negative things, talk negatively about others, harbor a negative attitude, and behave in a negative manner, et cetera. Ironically, many such people fail to see their own dilemma, blaming others for everything instead of humbling themselves in the sight of the Lord. The solution is Jesus Christ! If we focus on others we will become discouraged, because people will hurt us and let us down. If we focus upon our self, then we will feel inadequate and like a failure. The answer is to stay focus upon the Lord Jesus Christ in the Scriptures (John 5:39).
Telling the Truth to Help Others is Love
By telling you the truth I am doing the greatest thing I could ever do for you. I am not your enemy. I know that I am a very hated person for my Biblical preaching (and also very loved by many who love the truth). Although I don't like being hated, I am willing to be the bad guy to help others. I am on the Lord's side (Joshua 24:15). I have received countless letters from people who said they hated me at first when they found my website ministry, but now they love me in the Lord. Some thought it was a joke at first. But then they said after months, and even years of reading my articles, God worked in their heart and they received Christ Jesus as their personal Savior. Praise the Lord!!!
If there was something truthful that I knew, but telling you would not benefit you, then I wouldn't tell you. I think there are somethings that people shouldn't tell others, that would accomplish more harm than good. Being honest is not always the smartest thing to do when it comes to revealing personal secrets. I think there are some things that even married couples ought to keep secret, such as sins about their parents. You ought never confess your sins (past or present) to anyone except God in your heart. So when I speak about telling the truth, I am not saying we should spread gossip, rumors or tales about others, for that is a sin. Proverbs 11:13, “A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.” Proverbs 20:19: He that goeth about as a talebearer [Hebrew: raw-keel, meaning, “scandal-monger”] revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. Proverb 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.”
I have received countless e-mails from people over the years, who went from being unsaved to born-again Christians now serving God. And they thank me for my part in influencing them. I give all the credit and praise to God alone. I am just the prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul called himself the “prisoner” of the Lord. A servant can quit when he wants, but a prisoner cannot. I could not live with myself if I didn't fulfil the ministry that God has given me to do. I love the ministry work which God has given me to do, preaching the truth and promoting Spirit-filled Bible-preaching. Ephesians 3:1, “For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles.”
How tragic that so many of our evangelical churches have joined the New World Order unknowingly by supporting Zionism, counterfeit Bible versions, Lordship Salvation and the illegal overthrow of Iraq and murder of 1,455,590 innocent Iraqis. We American think we can do anything we please. I pray for God to judge America. We need another Great Depression. We need a nuclear holocaust to bring us to our knees! We need a divine butt-whipping to drive us back to God (Psalms 119:67, 71; Deuteronomy 6:12). We are one day, literally, going to get what we deserve. I firmly believe that the nation to be destroyed in ONE DAY in Revelation chapter 18 refers to the United States, by whom “the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” (Revelation 18:3). With all our delicious food products, wines, cheeses, meats, restaurants, delis and every convenience imaginable in the history of mankind, how can this not refer to the United States of America? Re:18:22:
Also, the U.S. is the envy of the world when it comes to music, movies and entertainment. Revelation 18:22, “And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee.” We have so much in America, including an abundance of truth. Despite the lying mainstream newsmedia, their are plenty of alternative media outlets available on the internet. This blessing will eventually come to an end. Information, particularly THE TRUTH, will be greatly censored. I believe it is at this point that the Lord will return at the Rapture. The Lord says in 2nd Peter 3:9 that the only reason He hasn't returned is because He desires for all men to repent and be saved. WHAT AN AWESOME AND MERCIFUL GOD!!!
The Bible says that love (charity) never faileth (1st Corinthians 13:8). Love is “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Love is Jesus Christ dying on the cross for our sins. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
Most people errantly think that love is that gooey special feeling you have for someone, but that is fondness, not love. Whatever love is, the Holy Bible commands us to have it even for our enemies in Matthew 5:44, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” You may detest a person, even feel contempt for them, yet you can still express God's unconditional love toward them by treating them kindly, meeting their needs and doing what is right in God's eyes.
There are many expressions of Biblical love; such as, giving to the poor, helping those in need, fasting and praying for others, caring for the uncaring, blessing those who curse us, doing good to those who do evil things to us, praying for those who despitefully use and persecute, and telling the truth even when it costs us popularity. Love it putting others first before our self. But these are expressions of love, and not love itself. So what is true love? The only Biblical definition that I could find for “love” is found in 1st John 4:8, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love,” and 1st John 4:16, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” Isn't that beautiful? God and love are synonymous!
The best definition of love is God Himself. God is holy, He is truth, and He is love! When we show love toward others, we remind them of God. Jesus told the unbelieving Jews that they didn't have God's love in them. John 5:42, “But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.” Every born-again believer has the Holy Spirit of God indwelling them, which sheds the love of God abroad in our heart. Romans 5:5, “And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”
The Holy Spirit is called “the Spirit of truth.” I love that! John14:17, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” Notice that the unbelieving world CANNOT receive the Holy Spirit, because they do not see Him, nor do they know Him, so they also do not see THE TRUTH about spiritual matters!!! The common knowledge that a world leader is coming is not a spiritual matter. Unsaved heathens for millenniums have anticipated a coming world leader. Christ-rejecting Jews (Judaism) and Arabs (Islam) are all waiting for the Christ (but he is not Jesus Christ). As born-again Christians, we are “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
Our text passages of Scripture from John 8:45 and Galatians 4:16 both contain the statement, “BECAUSE I TELL YOU THE TRUTH.” Jesus said they believed Him not because He told them the truth. The apostle Paul asked the believers at the church at Galatia if they now considered him their enemy for telling the truth. The heathen world has always been blinded in darkness by the Devil, to hinder them from seeing the Gospel and coming to Christ by faith to be saved (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4). The Gospel is nonsense to the unsaved world (1st Corinthians 1:21). I have witnessed to many people who've told me they considered the concept of being born-again nonsense. It is a fairytale to them. 1st Corinthians 1:20-21, “Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
The command to love others is based on how God has loved us. Since believers have been the recipients of love, they must love. Since Christ has laid down his life for us, we must be willing to lay down our lives for our brothers (1st John 3:16).
Love compels us to treat others the way we would like to be treated. Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12 is often referred to as “The Golden Rule.” Love causes us to treat others the way God tells us to in the Bible. Matthew 19:19, “Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” Love is not bringing up someone's past sins, failures, mistakes or rumors. Proverb 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” Love is giving people a second chance. Matthew 5:46, “For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?” Love is not remembering the past. Love is buying an extra slice of pizza for the other person.
Telling the Truth Will Always Make You Unpopular
Love is caring enough to divide over truth, rather than to go along in sinful compromise with error. I love people enough to be called the bad guy, because I say it like it is. Telling the truth is love, even though it may cost us friendships and financial security. Most Christian leaders have never lost anything from preaching the truth, because they don't preach it. You'll never truly be a man of God until you're willing to lose everything for the sake of the truth and righteousness. My stand for truth has cost me much. I've lost friends. I've been kicked out of churches. I've been removed from boards. I've been asked not to come back to speak. I've been falsely accused, hated and persecuted for my stand for God. I've paid a great price!
I know what it costs to take a stand against the satanic counterfeit Bible versions flooding around in our churches today. I know the cost of taking a stand against the Lordship Salvation heresy which has infected more than half of our churches today. And I'm going to keep preaching against them until the Lord takes me home or I am unable to do so any longer. Zionism has infiltrated our churches, deceiving the churches to support the New World Order.
