When we get confronted with the Truth, we sometimes react in the way which is ugly for others to watch. We badmouth people and we look for others who can join us so that we can get together to put down those who told us the Truth.
The thing is if the Truth doesn’t confront us squarely, it can’t directly come to our hearts where the root of sin is found. If it doesn’t come to our hearts, it stays in our brain and makes us “good theologians” who know everything about the Bible but have nothing to do with it. For the truth to confront us, we have to be willing to get hurt by it because Truth crashes our egos and prides which are our number one enemies we carry with us. But the good news is the hurt the Truth brings to our life is the beginning of our healing.
