What is God Without Truth?

“What is God without truth? And what is all the goodness of the goepel without truth? And what is all the fabric of man’s salvation without truth?  Truth is, as it were, the pin, the clasp, the knot that ties all.  Pull out that, untie and break that, the excellencies of God, the glories of Christ, the sweetness of the promises, the souls of men, the salvation of men’s souls, all are dashed, are broken, are gone.  And such work heresy makes.  It dissolves the bond of all glory, yea, it resolves God into worse than nothing.  No God is better than a false god.  There is an open or secret blasphemy in all heresies.  No man can condemn the Truth of God, but it that he must likewise condemn the God of Truth.”

Obadiah Sedgwick, from his “The Doubting Believer”, P192
