"When we love others, we know that we belong to the truth, and we feel at ease in the presence of God." (1 John 3:19) God, the Father's Word, is truth. "Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours." (John 17:17) God the Son, Jesus, declared himself to be truth. "I am the way, the truth, and the life!" Jesus answered. "Without me, no one can go to the Father." (John 14:6) God the Holy Spirit is spoken of as the Spirit of truth. "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth." (John 16:13) Grace and truth come by Jesus Christ. "God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." (John 1:17) The Bible says that you can know the truth and the truth will set you free.

Religion vs Christianity? 'Living Free' Series: *******www.ydyc****/watch/living-free/ Session 4 Part 2: *******www.ydyc****/media/video/living-free-series/session-four/religion-vs-christianity/ St. Augustine once said that, "There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus." Human experience bears out the truth of Augustine's statement in that within every person, no matter the age in which they live, or the culture in which they reside, every person has a vacuum that cannot be filled. We know this to be true because we watch all manner of people indulge in all kinds of activity and behaviour trying to find something that will fulfil them. People use religion to try to fill the vacuum that was meant to be filled by God. So let's look at the difference between Religion vs Christianity. - Religion is man's attempt to reach up to God. - Christianity is God reaching down to mankind. We learn about Christianity in the Bible. In the book of Romans we read, "We aren't saved from sin's grasp by knowing the commandments of God, because we can't and don't keep them, but God put into effect a different plan to save us. He sent his own Son in a human body like ours - except that ours are sinful - and destroyed sin's control over us by giving himself as a sacrifice for our sins." (Romans 8:3) - Religion is about what I do. - Christianity is about what Jesus did for me. In the book of Ephesians in the Bible, it says, "It is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it." (Ephesians 2:8) - Religion is about following a set of rules and rituals in order to get God's acceptance. - Christianity is about God accepting me because of what Jesus did when he died for me; therefore I obey him in gratitude. The Bible says in the book of Romans, "God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins". (Romans 3:24) God wants to set you free! Learn how much Jesus loves you, and how it shows you the difference between Religion vs Christianity in 'Session Four - Part Two: Religion vs Christianity'.

What Is The Bible About? 'Living Free' Series: *******www.ydyc****/watch/living-free/ Session 3 Part 1: *******www.ydyc****/media/video/living-free-series/session-three/what-is-the-bible-about/ The Bible is primarily about you, giving the standard for a meaningful life, the revelation of Jesus and the key to true freedom and liberty. The Bible is also known as the Word of God and the Scriptures. The Bible is the inspired Word of God: What does it mean that the Bible is inspired? The word 'inspiration' simply means 'God-breathed'. As we read in the book of Timothy in the Bible,"All Scripture is God-breathed." When people speak of the Bible as inspired, they are referring to the fact that God divinely influenced the human authors of the Scriptures in such a way that what they wrote was what God wanted us to know. Inspiration means the Bible truly is the Word of God and makes it unique among all other books. The Bible is God's workshop manual: The Bible is God's way, the creator of the Universe, of communicating to his creation. Each of the 66 books in the Bible has a different theme and a different way of showing us who God is and teaching us his way. As the Bible says, "All Scripture is given by God and is useful for teaching, for showing people what is wrong in their lives, for correcting faults, and for teaching how to live right." (2 Timothy 3:16) The Bible is the source of truth: The Bible is truthful because it proceeds out of the mouth of God and it is impossible for God to lie. In John's gospel we read, "Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours." (John17:17) The Bible is powerful: The Bible says in the book of Hebrews, "Whatever God says to us is full of living power: it is sharper than the sharpest dagger, cutting swift and deep into our innermost thoughts and desires with all their parts, exposing us for what we really are." (Hebrews 4:12) Learn 'what is the Bible about, where God is, and what is faith. Watch online or download free: *******www.ydyc****/
