#1. Philosophy: “the love of wisdom”.

Philosophy is the study of the fundamental nature of truth, reality, knowledge, beauty, and ethics.

Your philosophy determines what you think and how you live. Even how and who/what you will worship.

All the right answers are in the Bible!

What is truth?
Your answer to that question determines your philosophy.

“The absolute truth, truth you can rely on, is revealed by God in the Bible.”

JOH 14:6

The truth is embodied in Jesus Christ, God’s Son.

COL 2:2-3

Grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. (JOH 1:17)

The Bible also tells us that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. (JOH 14:7; JOH 16:13)

God’s word is truth.

JOH 17:17-19

God the Father seeks people who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.

JOH 4:23-24

What does Jesus say will make us free?

JOH 8:31-32

And look how Jesus describes satan:

JOH 8:44-47

And please take to heart who Jesus says is of God… He who hears the words of God.
