True truth can only be found in the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures, the Bible.
- I must accept its authority. The Bible must have the first and last word in my life. it is more sure than culture, tradition, reason, or emotion. All four of those are flawed by the Fall. We need a perfect standard.
- I must assimilate its truth. That takes time, research, and meditation.
- I must apply its principles. We must become “doers of the Word.” [See James 1:22] We avoid this part because it is difficult and painful.
