John 8:12 NIV

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:31b-32 NIV

…Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Criteria for Testing Truth:


Does it make you want to correct other’s mistakes?
Or do you want to work on yourself?


Do you feel condemned because you have areas that need work?
Or do you feel FREE to run—to go and sin no more?


Does it only confirm what you already feel and believe?
Or does it challenging some of your thoughts and behaviors?

John 9:5 NIV

“I am the light of the world.”

John 8:6b NIV

“Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.”
