Simply defined, Truth is “God’s perspective on any issue” (KAW).
Can Christians have love for one another and at the same time pursue truth? Many in our day have concluded that truth is divisive. Some think that Christians cannot love truth and other Christians at the same time. This in part is an unfortunate legacy of the 16th century Reformation in which Christians came to oppose other Christians because of disagreements over the faith.
There is a movement in our day toward a greater sense of love and acceptance between Christians of differing faiths. We greatly endorse that perspective. However, to love our fellow Christians should not be at the cost of giving up the pursuit of Scriptural truth. The apostle Paul said:
"We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church (Ephesians 4:15 NLT).
Christ loved truth and people at the same time. To truly be his disciples, we must do the same. An important reason we believe there must be a new Reformation in our time is to bring these issues of love of people and pursuit of truth together.
We at 21st Century Reformation do not claim to know all truth. We are, however, committed to the pursuit of truth; of God’s perspective. We invite you to join us in our quest for both love and truth.
