I. Building Life on the Right Foundation Vol. 2

A.Building Life on the Right Foundation

1. Building life on the Truth.

a.(ref. Luke 6:43-49) the foundation you build your life on determines the fruit that your life produces.

b.We’re witnessing the abandonment and attempt to assassinate truth in the world, the culture and unfortunately even the church.

2.What is Truth?

a.Truth is the absolute standard whereby all reality is measured.

b.God is the only one who can originate truth because He is omniscient, perfect and eternal.

~Therefore, Truth is God’s view on any subject.

~God’s Word is the source of truth.

c.(John 8:31-32) knowing the truth makes you free.

B.The Enemy of Truth

1.(John 8:43-47) the enemy of the truth is Satan.

a.(ref. 1 Pet. 5:8) the devil is seeking whom he may devour.

b.(ref. John 10:10 AMP) Satan’s mission is 3-fold: to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus came to give abundant life.

2.How does the devil steal, kill and destroy?

a.By propagating lies that blind people from the truth and keeping them in darkness, bondage and death.

~(2 Cor. 4:3-4) mind blinded to the gospel

~(ref. Rev. 12:9) Satan deceived the whole world

3.Let’s see how Adam/Eve handle Satan’s lies compared to how Jesus handles his lies.

a.(Gen. 3:1-5)

b.(Matt. 4:3-11)
