Changes to Guided By Truth

This blog was started as a website about 15 years ago. We were made of up 4  people who just wanted to share the truth about doctrines that have infiltrated the church and were not only causing division but sometimes offering a false salvation leaving many to perish. Eventually our lives just got busy and we could not keep up the posts but we wanted to keep the content up as we could see many were still visiting the site. We later made it into a blog so we could easily utilize ad-sense so it would at least supplement our contribution to the annual server and domain fees.

Unfortunately most of our contributors left the project completely and updates became non-existent. It is my hope that this year I can edit and update the content. 
The key factor that I want to convey when moving forward is the need to be respectful and gentle to those with whom we disagree. Not all doctrines are true but all people are made in the image of God and are therefore worthy of respect. We are also commanded to be gentle and respectful when making a defense of the faith.


1 Peter 3:15-17Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

15 but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. 16 Yet do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that when you are accused, those who disparage your good conduct in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.

If you have questions about a specific doctrine or teacher that is troubling you, feel free to ask questions and I will do my best to answer it. The important thing is to remember that the Scriptures, not any one church, author, preacher, website, or organization holds the answer. Jesus alone is the truth and it is Him who will set us free from error if we are willing to seek the truth. The problem is that we are usually more concerned with proving ourselves right than learning the truth. We need to be humble and open enough to be willing to find the truth, wherever that may lead us.



Ephesians 4:1-4Christian Standard Bible (CSB)


Therefore I, the prisoner in the Lord, urge you to live worthy of the calling you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope at your calling—
