God of Truth

In Bible study tonight, the main point was that we must have a fixed point of reference (God's Word). Mr. Babb used an illustration of a crime scene. When you write out a report of a crime scene, everything is based on fixed reference points. Fixed reference points in the sense of scripture means that we have the Truth, and it will never change. I really appreciate all the work that Mr. Babb does in preparation for this Bible study. Take a look at these passages (I left out a couple because they are almost identical):

Isaiah 65:16 - God of truth.
John 14:6 - Jesus is truth.
1 John 5:6 - Spirit is truth.
John 17:17 - God's Word is truth.
Numbers 23:19-20 - God doesn't lie or change His mind.
James 1:17 - God doesn't change.
2 Samuel 22:31 - God's way is perfect, flawless, and proven.
Deuteronomy 32:4 - God's work is perfect.
Proverbs 30:5 - God's Word is tested.
Psalm 12:6 - God's Word is pure.

What should our response be?
Deuteronomy 4:2
You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Simply put, our response needs to be obedience to the one and only Truth (God's Word).
