Is love more important than truth? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 209

Is love more important than truth?

Jared Byas, cohost of The Bible for Normal People and author of "Love Matters More:  How Fighting to Be Right Keeps Us from Loving Like Jesus", joins Joshua Noel to discuss his book and why it is such an important message for the Church today! We discuss the relationship love and truth have to one another, and what we mean by the word "truth" in the first place.


What church does Jared Byas go to? What is biblical definition of love? What did the Bible say about love? What is God's love according to the Bible? What is the meaning of true in the Bible? How do you define the word truth? What does it mean to say the truth? How can our experiences change how we interpret truth? What's the difference of fact truths and wisdom truths?


In this episode, we will:

  • Deconstruct the word "truth"
  • Evaluate the importance the Bible places on truth and love
  • Examine our own values around truth and love
  • Discuss the idols we may have in our churches today

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
