“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God...” (I Peter 4:11) Mt. Vernon Church of Christ

Truth is always truth. It changes not its clothing with the ebb of the seasons. Its countenance I eternally the same no matter who teaches it. No person or group owns its copyright. It is consistent, beautiful and powerful.

We must love the truth, not because we agree with it, nor because we always before believed it, nor because of who else believes it, nor yet because it is advantageous to us. We must believe and teach it because it is truth! All other motives are but satellites to this brightest of assets in the real man.

God has obligated the individual to religiously seek truth; to pledge  his life to its promulgation no matter in what area of activity and thought it is revealed to him - no matter what earthly consequences may be the fruit of such a course. He who has not come to regard truth as the most precious and valuable possession available is a slave to be pitied and prayed for. Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). Solomon wrote, "Buy the truth and sell it not" (Prov. 23:23). Peter wrote, "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever" (I Pet. 1:22,23).
