Jesus said, “… you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” As Christians we believe that the truth has value, obviously. However, sometimes we don’t handle the truth well. Sometimes we misuse and abuse it; and sometimes we fail to receive it well. Part of being a mature believer is being able to handle the truth, in both the giving and receiving aspects.
“Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.” — Ephesians 4:14, 15 (NLT)
