In 2 Thessalonians 2:10, Paul states, “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” We live in a “perishing world.” In the world, and even worse, in the church, we see people refusing to love and stay with the truth! As social “norms” change and the loud cry for inclusivism and tolerance grow, even evangelical churches are beginning to veer from the truth of God’s Word. In this letter to the Thessalonians, Paul is speaking of the coming of the antichrist and how he is being restrained by the Holy Spirit in the believers – the Church. Unfortunately, the restraints are being loosened because more “believers” are changing their minds about the truth! Social norms or new laws can never change the Rock of truth that the Church is built on! John 14:6 tells us Who this truth is: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (NKJV).
