THE Church...THE Pillar of THE Truth

1 Timothy 3:15: “but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth."  The Greek word for pillar is stulos, from stuo, which means a post, something that supports. In other words, Paul is conveying that the purpose of the Church is to uphold the truth that was given to her. If the church is not preaching the truth of God's Word, she has lost her way.  When the "pillar of truth" is removed, the building has nothing to support it!

Instead of boldly proclaiming the truth of the Gospel, much of the church is now apologizing for and reasoning away the very foundations of the Gospel. I recently watched a very well-known minister interviewed on a national talk show.  When he was asked the question "is Jesus the only way to God?", he could not bring himself to say that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.  Some say, "but you don't want to offend anyone" and "we want the church to be accepted by the world."  Jesus said, "I am THE way, THE truth and THE life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me," (John 14:6).  The Apostle Paul said the cross would be an offense, not to mention the fact that in Acts 17:6 the apostles had "turned the world upside down."  The church has been telling the truth badly and the world telling a lie rather well. Come on church, we can change the sound, the look, the style and the feel of things, but we cannot change the foundational truths of the Gospel and the Word of God.  When we do, we are just another powerless social organization with a pretty building. It's time to stand with Peter and proclaim with Holy Ghost boldness the TRUE GOSPEL that is the power of God unto salvation! (Romans 1:16)
