Christians get in trouble when …

“Christians get in trouble when they conform to the world’s thinking and ignore principles. They are tempted not to cause waves, forgetting that the world already is a turbulent place and that men are – whether they realize it or not – for the stability of fixed principles. These principles can come only from the Christians, from those who base all decisions upon Biblical truth.”

– from p.29 of book “If The Foundations Are Destroyed” by K. Alan Snyder.

Ecclesiastes 5:4-7

Ecclesiastes 5:4-7
“4) When you make a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for He has no pleasure in fools: pay that which you have vowed.
5) Better is it that you should not vow, than that you should vow and not pay.
6) Allow not your mouth to cause your flesh to sin; neither say you before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands?
7) For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear you God.”

Truthfulness is based on love …

“Truthfulness is based on love. To be truthful is to state reality at all times, to be free from falsehood and deception. It is never loving to be untruthful, even when it seems like it might be best to engage in a “white lie.” Jesus said of the Father, “Thy word is truth.” Of Himself He declared, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” Of the Holy Spirit, He claimed, “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.” Paul instructs Christians to speak the truth in love and warns them to lay aside falsehood and “speak truth, each one of you, with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.” God’s love requires truthfulness.”
