Hebrews 10:26-27 ” If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.”

God’s divine viewpoint is true truth.  It is the redemptive revelation, or saving truth we receive when we acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  But God’s truth is also uncomfortable, and makes us squirm as we face the unlovely parts of our life.  So it’s much easier to water down and bend God’s truth than to change ourselves.  That’s why we’re warned in II Peter 2:20, that when those who know Christ but then become entangled and overcome by sin are worse off at the end than when they were at the beginning.  For there’s only one form of the truth, and when we intentionally embrace half-truths to make ourselves feel better…it’s still sin.
