YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH by steve finnell
Jesus told those who believed in Him they would know the truth. Jesus did not say they would form their personal opinion of the truth.
John 8:31-32 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." (NASB)
There were two things the disciples had to do to become free. 1. Believe in Him. 2. Continue in His word. Truth and freedom followed belief in Jesus and continuing in His word.
There is no Scripture that states a believer is set free because they have reached their own personal opinion of what is the truth.
JESUS SPEAKS TRUTH ABOUT SALVATION: Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved....(NASB)
Every other view about Mark 16:16 is opinion.
Jesus said, "You will know the truth," He did not say you will dream up a man-made opinion about the truth.
Jesus never said, "You are saved by grace alone," "You are saved by faith only," "You are saved by water baptism only," "You are saved by confession only," "You are saved by repentance only." These are man's opinions of the truth about salvation.
God's terms for salvation: Faith-John 3:16, Repentance-Acts 3:19, Confession-Romans 10:9, Water Baptism- 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 2:38.
