People's Bible Notes for John 8:32


Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth. Disciples are learners. Their object is to know the truth. The way to know the truth is to obey the truth. The truth shall make you free. The Gospel obeyed, frees--frees from the yoke of Satan, from spiritual task-masters, from fear, fills the soul with hope and the free spirit of a son who serves the Father from love.

Discussion for John 8

  • Jimmy a disciple of Jesus
    how come no one is mentioning Romans 10:9-10...or even Acts16:29-31...we do have to be careful about false doctrines..what is repentance?? to turn away from the way we used to be...this is not to be seen in the carnal realm but in the spiritual!! Jesus said " the words i speak unto are spirit and are life!!Repentance starts in the Spiritual realm then is seen in the Carnal.
  • A disciple
    "...I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." Jesus said that His Elect, in whom He has wrought grace and truth and given of His Spirit, SHALL NOT WALK IN DARKNESS, BUT SHALL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE! How then is it a stumblingblock to some that we should walk in holiness and truth and understand the Scriptures and our time here?
  • A disciple
    "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12 What was it that made the "devout" Pharisees so hotly pursue the Lord Jesus, and then the Apostles and disciples after Him; instead of kissing their lips for giving a right answer? He that has the Spirit of Christ, will also know Him.
  • A disciple
    Eric (cont.); If you accept something that you have been offered, you say yes to it or agree to take it. If you accept a plan or an intended action, you agree to it and allow it to happen. The problem however arises from the lazy and self-centered T.V. watching mentality of our modern generation, that makes us view everything in a merely passive NON-participatory state of mind; while we MUST act!
  • A disciple
    Dear Eric; I understand very well your reference Scripture, and how we MUST "receive" Jesus. But I strongly DISAGREE with the ultra popular contemporary notion which directs people to "Accept" Jesus into their darkened and alienated by nature lives, with absolutely NO mention or even a basic teaching about repentance and CONVERSION. We have to follow the Lord's own teaching about what we must do.
  • Eric
    Rev 3:20. Accepting Jesus into your heart IS scriptural. Please, everyone, be careful what you claim is scriptural or not. Read John 5:39. Of course we need to repent to have salvation, but sometimes we need Jesus in our hearts to do so. "Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more". First Jesus does not condemn, THEN, tells her to repent.
