In this increasingly postmodern world, truth is not valued to the degree it once was. People often understand “truth” to be relative and “self-defined” in a way that seems best to them. Futhermore, the acceptance of “absolute truth” has become a thing of the past—an old notion that is considered to be the source of intolerance and arrogance. This secular worldview is bombarding the culture and subtlety creeping into the church.
Christians often limit the extent to which the Truth of God—the Bible—is able to give clearer focus to everything in life. Once a person can see and embrace the glory of the Gospel, he takes off these lenses of truth before examing the non-spiritual things in life. If something is not explicitly mentioned in Scripture, he goes looking for a different set of lenses to see and understand it. Unfortunately, the world is more than eager to provide Christians with different lenses designed by Satan, which distort and skew reality instead of making it clear.
Believers must not limit the scope, authority, and relevance of God’s truth as revealed in the Bible:
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Your Word is Truth helps students understand and embrace the authoritative Truth of the Bible so that they may see and interpret all of life through the lens of Scripture. Youth willing be challenged to develop a biblical worldview as they study comtemporary topics they experience in everday life such as family, friendships, entertainment, human suffering, and money. The goal is to no only encourage them to embrace the life-giving truth, but to also equip them to walk in, defend, and proclaim the truth so that they might shine as lights in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation (Phillippians 2:15).
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Acts 12:2)
