Over the past year, I have grown to LOVE Subway's footlong subs (submarine sandwiches, hoagies, torpedo's or what you want to call them). Eating them at least once a week (after a weight watcher's meeting) has become a habit that I really enjoy!!! But, there is a problem; and just one glance at the picture will tell you what it is!!! A foot-long is not really a foot-long!!!! Another example of someone stretching (or should I say - shrinking) the truth. A few decades ago, this misrepresentation would have seemed outrageous, but today? I think NOT! It is common in our society for people to believe that everyone is right and truth is relative. However, if all are right, how can there be any truth at all? There is "the truth"!!!! It does not originate with man, but rather with Almighty God!!! Moreover, it MUST BE OBEYED!!! Paul puts it this way...
Galatians, Chapter 3
1 Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly portrayed among you as crucified?
Jesus believed, practiced and died for "the truth". Apart from him there is no truth, or life beyond life. Believing otherwise is as foolish as believing that a "foot-long" is really a foot-long. Jesus is exactly as advertised. He really did the things the Bible said he did; he measures up to any and all standards. Do you?
