TruthReminders exists to encourage engagement with truth in a post-truth world.
the Word of God, truth revealed
TruthReminders exists to encourage perseverance in the revealed truth of God through a two-fold engagement:
engagement in scripture-based prayer for our families, for the next generation, and
engagement in clear, biblical thinking about our circumstances.
Why encourage perseverance?
We may live in a culture that claims there is no truth that supersedes feelings and personal beliefs, but we serve a God who is preeminent over all, who is Truth, whether acknowledged or not.
The preeminent truth of God as revealed in His Word defines me and you and all of creation. God's Word is truth that remains.
So, we join with the writer of Hebrews, who proclaims:
"But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls." - Hebrews 10:39
Why engage in scripture-based prayer?
According to Isaiah 55: 10-11, scripture does not return void.
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it."
Praying the scriptures for our families is how we engage in the battle for truth over lies in our lives. Our customized prayer pages are visible reminders of truth.

Why engage in clear, biblical thinking?
According to the book of 1 Peter, we have this living hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ: we are delivered and guarded by God's power today, and we have the hope of Heaven tomorrow. We are still here still today, and in order to persevere, Peter tells us to set our hope fully on our Living Hope - on the gospel, on Jesus. How? Prepare your minds for action and be sober-minded.
"Therefore, preparing your minds for action,[b] and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 1:13
What does it mean to be sober-minded?
R.C. Sproul puts it this way, “To be sober-minded...is to treat truth seriously and to have a healthy doubt as to our own understanding of truth…"
John Piper says, “God has wired our minds to serve our emotions, our convictions to serve our hope. Therefore, think hard for the sake of your heart.”
To be sober-minded is to think clearly, think biblically, not flippantly, but wisely and methodically, not changing your mind with the ever-changing wind. To visit our blog, click here.
