How do you know what is truth, Ashish? There is only one way – and that is to ask God to show you and to be prepared to give up your life. Because coming to the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ, means your life will be forfeited. All men are liars, so coming to the truth means your end, and that’s a good thing. It’s the end of being dead to God and the beginning of being alive to Him, which in the Bible is called “eternal life.”
Luke 18:18-27 MKJV
(18) And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
(19) And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? None is good except One, God.
(20) You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother.
(21) And he said, I have kept all these from my youth up.
(22) And when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, Yet you lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me.
(23) And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful, for he was very rich.
(24) And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, He said, How hardly those having riches shall enter into the kingdom of God!
(25) For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich one to enter into the Kingdom of God.
(26) And the ones who heard said, And who can be saved?
(27) And He said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
The truth isn’t just something you hear – it’s what you live by.
“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that ‘man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God’” (Luke 4:4 MKJV).

The law has been replaced by grace Matthew 5:17-20 MKJV (17) Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. (18) For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. (19) Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. (20) For I say to you that unless your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 1 Timothy 1:8-11 MKJV (8) But we know that the Law is good if a man uses it lawfully, (9) knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous one, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) for fornicators, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and a...
A reader asks us how a loving God will reconcile all back to Himself.

Peter failed, but chose to be forgiven over & over & over. Paul & the disciples were not always correct, but they submitted to grace. My experience at TSC is the same. All churches are run by humans who are not always speaking for The Lord. If it were a 100% all the time submission we would all eventually end up on auto-pilot. Or end up worshipping the Staff & not The Lord. It's a 'living' word because we have to always be collecting more manna. I have had The Lord speak directly just to me through the pastors at TSC, I have also witnessed times when I was pretty sure that they were speaking from the flesh. Yes, the Bible says that teachers are held accountable for what they say, but! The hearer is also called to 1.) pray for those in authority 2.) pray for wisdom & insight to know when a word is from The Lord or not 3.) spend time alone with The Lord. (In the banking industry, tellers who are money handlers can tell a counterfeit bill by simply handling lots of legitimate bills, they know the difference through experience.) There have been times at TSC when I say, "Lord, I think he is speaking in the flesh." & then I lift it up to The Lord. A week later, that same Pastor will admit & apologize for speaking in the flesh. It's The Lord! We are calle...
