Spiritual Liberty 3

Audio Version☞

2 Timothy 3:7 (KJV)
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Spiritual liberty has been paid for by the Lord Christ, but it has to be received by believers. Disciples are those who through learning, come to the knowledge of the truth and receive this liberty (see John 8:31-32).

Like those in 2 Tim 3:7, there are believers who are always learning but never able to arrive at the knowledge of the truth [that brings freedom], because there are things actively preventing them from this. In the case of those in 2 Tim 3:7, it was false teachers who encouraged license.

In the case of the Galatians, it was false teachers who taught salvation by works. Paul was so troubled by this. He said:
'You were running well; who prevented you from obeying the truth?' (Galatians 5:7 (NET))

Because of false doctrines, many believers have been hindered from arriving at the knowledge of the Truth.

There are basically two kinds of corrupted gospels currently actively hindering believers from attaining the knowledge of the truth. The first is the gospel of ‘works for salvation’. This tries to downplay the work of Christ for the salvation of the believer. It tells people that there are things they need to do in order to pay for their salvation.

The second kind of currupted gospel is the gospel of license. This tries to downplay the work of the Holy Spirit in transforming the believer into the image of Christ. It suggests that believers can continue in sin because grace abounds.

Go into today remembering that anyone who subscribes to any of these corrupted gospels will not come to the knowledge of the truth. He will not be free indeed but will remain a slave to sin and all other works of the devil.
