John 3:19-21; Proverbs 23:23
This negative picture of God's unfaithful people is still true of many so-called believers today. They know the truth is near, but they choose to live by whatever is right in their own eyes.
The Nature of Truth
Buy the truth and do not sell it – wisdom, instruction and insight as well. (NIV)
We may think of several reasons or excuses for not buying the truth, but at the heart of the matter is the underlying reason, as mentioned in the holy Scripture, "people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil." That is the truth behind the world's rejection of the Truth.
To actually live by truth is costly, and we sometimes pay the price to hold on to it in conflicting circumstances. We do so, at the cost of our sinful way of life, at the price of any loss or suffering.
