True History

2 Tim 3:16-17
“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

The Bible is History, God provided that it be written so that we would learn and be equipped to do good. The history of America is our history, and is to be learned from as well, if we expect good to come from its lessons.

Our history is not all good obviously, in fact it’s pretty bad in places, because we humans can do some seriously ugly stuff, but we must have the foundation of truth to grow from if we are to grow toward the good.

History is factual, just as Math is factual, but I don’t see the multiplication tables being re-written, or how 2+2=4 being changed. Why just re-write History? Because to re-write history, biblical or American, is to manipulate the hearer/society to grow in a distorted direction. Truth has to be, must be, the foundational starting point in growth if we are to really grow beyond the worst we are capable of and grow into the people we can be.

One thought on “True History

  1. Amen, Amy…The Truth will always stand on its own, even when its twisted, mistorted, changed. My dad used to say always be truthful, because the Truth will always come out. Will come up from the ground if need be. Our heavenly Father says, If you know the Truth, the Truth will set you free. He is Truth…may He have mercy on our country and put Godly proclaimers, pastors, teachers,writers in key places to return Truth to our Nation.
