Paul reasoned and spoke boldly. You have the freedom to believe whatever you want but, it’s not the truth. Ask yourself what am I believing right now that needs adjustment? Do you love something so much that you can make that switch? Proverbs 22:23, it will cost you something. There is a price for following the truth. New things to embrace, new things to pick up. You got to make the choice. Do you want to be a lover of truth. 1). There is a price 2). Humble and be able to receive, correct, and make changes 3). Recognize the lack of love for truth.
