Hard Truth

Hard Truth

The Hard Truth

The truth is only hard because we think we already know the truth and that is not a good attitude if you want to succeed in life, achieving eternal life. The anvil and hammer represent the difficulty in getting to the truth. It is hard work and NOT just a simple swing of the hammer, but consistent diligence. One might be concerned about fairness, because not every person has the diligence and intelligence to be successful. However, if you arrive at the truth about God, His purpose, His plan you will know of God’s perfect fairness. It will be easy to handle all your concerns regarding His test. It is amazing how people place themselves on the level of God in making judgments. It is no wonder God is testing humankind to sort those worthy of heaven.

Hard Truth is the real truth, but is hard because there is only one way to get it. That way should be obvious to people who really want the truth. You can obtain the truth about spiritual things only from God. In the present age, which is the last age of God’s test to fulfill His purpose; you need to realize God speaks to us through His Son.

Hebrews 1.1-4

1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

When you listen to Jesus, you are following His New Covenant and that directs you how to become a child of God through a relationship with Him. Jesus, indeed becoming the author of eternal salvation to all those who obey Him (Hebrews 5.9).
The Hard Truth is not what you necessarily want to believe since it is hard/difficult. The way of truth has you living your fleshly life for God, through Christ. You will be doing His will and not your own. Think about how hard that might be, how many things you want to accomplish and then you may realize the test from God as very hard. You might even think, if this is the case few will be found acceptable. On the other hand, as you grow in the knowledge of God you will come to believe GOD’s WAY IS THE Only WAY TO LIVE and all else is futile, unsatisfying and will ultimately result in losing the only thing worthwhile in your existence namely, achieving heaven.

We live accepting so many things that we just “fall in love with.” Many people have similar categories of things they love. These are the things we are just very sure of – just no doubt about. We usually have a pretty good idea of how we came to believe these things. Time passes and we even shut our mind to any possibility of being wrong. The things we believe religiously are one of these categories. Everyone has a religious belief and that belief might be atheist. It might be that you believe in nothing religiously, even rejecting atheism. Yet, you cannot escape the fact that you believe something religiously even if it is the religion of no belief, or the religion of not caring.
Life it turns out is about finding the truth, because the truth has rewards and everything else ends in a bad result. Of course, when you find the truth (few find it) you learn that you must do the truth and continue in the truth the remainder of your life.

The following are hard truths and with some effort you can come to understand they are THE TRUTH. This website and other associated websites will help you do that. The truth is plain and simple and thus missing it, and consequently missing heaven will be very difficult.

The evidence for the statements can be found in the links, but for this page we will just list the HARD TRUTHS. The reason is to gain a perspective of the MAGNITUDE of the deceit that exists in the world of spiritual things.

(1) God exists and is the Creator.
(2) God is the God of the bible.
(3) God has a purpose and that purpose is fulfilled when individuals pass His test.
(4) Judaism was the part of God’s plan that brought Christ to reconcile the world.
(5) The Catholic church is the fabrication of men.
(6) Islam is the invention of one man.
(7) Mormonism is the invention of one man.
(8) All of the Eastern religions are man made and in fact claim no divine interventions.
(9) All protestant religions are man made.
(10) There is one solid thing where you can place your trust and be confident you are living the right way.
(11) Few will succeed in life and achieve heaven.
(12) Those who mentally believe in Jesus as the answer to salvation are deceived.
(13) Few people understand God but everyone can know His purpose and plan and all can succeed.
(14) Humankind underestimates God: His power, His love, His severity.
(15) God says little about the creation from a scientific viewpoint and does not discuss the age of the earth.
(16) The end of the world is well defined in the scriptures and you can easily know.
(17) Catholicism is an obvious fraud and easily exposed if you love the truth.
(18) People will “by-in-large” suffer eternal loss due to their pride.
(19) You need to stand on your own two feet and understand what you believe – do not believe anyone, including me!
(20) Catholicism and Protestantism frequently make mistakes on fundamental issues and interestingly on the same issue make them differently.
(21) Many people like to place themselves in the position of God, as though they can criticize God, as though they have a better way. The Truth is God is not a man and certainly not limited in any way.
(22) The only reason you should believe what you believe is because it is the truth.

There are hundreds more Hard Truths that we could list here, but these are provided to indicate the scope of the religious problem while still indicating there is truth. There is truth in religion and you need it and one way or another you will make decisions in your life that decide your eternal fate.
