Error unties and truth unites. Think about it. Error seeks to break apart the truth. Error causes disharmony and discord. But truth seeks to bring together those who agree with it.
Now, notice something about the opening statement of this article: Error unties and truth unites. Notice that the only difference in the two descriptive words “unties” and “unites” is where the “t” is placed. Let’s let the “t” represent the cross of Christ. It makes a difference where we put Christ and His word in our lives.
If we have Christ positioned properly and first in our lives, then His word will unify us with all others who do the same. But if we put Christ and His word anywhere lower than number one in our lives, we are positioning ourselves for error and disunity to creep in. Something to think about.
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim. 2:15)
