Gods Truth Stands Firm

2 Timothy 2:15-16, 19-26 TLB
Work hard so God can say to you, “Well done.” Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work. Know what his Word says and means. [16] Steer clear of foolish discussions that lead people into the sin of anger with each other. [19] But God’s truth stands firm like a great rock, and nothing can shake it. It is a foundation stone with these words written on it: “The Lord knows those who are really his,” and “A person who calls himself a Christian should not be doing things that are wrong.” [20] In a wealthy home there are dishes made of gold and silver as well as some made from wood and clay. The expensive dishes are used for guests, and the cheap ones are used in the kitchen or to put garbage in. [21] If you stay away from sin you will be like one of these dishes made of purest gold-the very best in the house-so that Christ himself can use you for his highest purposes. [22] Run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts that young men often have, but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right. Have faith and love, and enjoy the companionship of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts. [23] Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish arguments, which only upset people and make them angry. [24] God’s people must not be quarrelsome; they must be gentle, patient teachers of those who are wrong. [25] Be humble when you are trying to teach those who are mixed up concerning the truth. For if you talk meekly and courteously to them, they are more likely, with God’s help, to turn away from their wrong ideas and believe what is true. [26] Then they will come to their senses and escape from Satan’s trap of slavery to sin, which he uses to catch them whenever he likes, and then they can begin doing the will of God.

John 17:17 NKJV
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

Psalm 119:160 NKJV
The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
