Evidence that Demands an Examination

Evidence that Demands an Examination
1 John 1:1-3 "1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life-- 2  the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us-- 3that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ."

The world seems to be filled with claims of truth by numerous people and agendas which are often hard to discern. However, every once in a while someone comes forward with a truth claim that is so verifiable that it literally demands a thorough examination. Such is the claim by John the Beloved, a Disciple of Jesus. More than anyone alive at the time of this letter, (90 AD) John knew the claims made about Jesus and wrote to establish truth before leaving the scene.
John pushed back against *Docetism, *Gnosticism, and *Antinomianism, emphasizing the incarnate deity of Jesus, the importance of moral living, and the centrality of love in the life of a believer.

Let’s live in love this week, just like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
