The truth will set you free. How many times have we heard that quote? After a friend, Nancy, quoted this while urging me to tell details of a personal tragedy. Later, I pondered about truth. I searched through the Holy Bible to find the original context and, ultimately, the true meaning. Nancy thought sharing graphic details would give me freedom. BUT what did Jesus actually say about truth and freedom?
He said He WAS or IS the truth. Once we know this truth, as Jesus teaches it, then we will be free. Free, indeed.
"If you abide in MY word, you are MY disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31 NKJV (New King James Version)
