Stated Truly verses Statement of Truth

Just because something is stated truly does not mean it is a statement of truth.

For example...if I repeat something that is verbatim, what I repeated verbatim is stated truly, but it may not be a statement of truth. For many hundreds of years many people were told the earth was flat, any repeating of that statement was stated truly but, it was not a statement of truth because the earth is not flat.

Therefore, failing to separate what is true from what is truth opens us up to deception by accepting what is stated truly as a statement of truth when it is not.

Therefore, to understand the bible contextually and correctly it is imperative to separate what is true from what is truth. If we don't the subtleness of deception is accepted as truth and the formation of false doctrines occur.

Matthew 27, 46 states...And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Here we have a question by Jesus where He concludes that God forsook Him. From that that statement, that is truly stated, has formed the doctrine that God because of His holiness cannot look upon sin and turned His back of Jesus, His Son. But is that the truth?

God the Father forsaking His own Son? Impossible! God the Father was "in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself!" (2 Corinthians 5:19) Jesus in His humanity because of the suffering He was experiencing couldn't feel His Father's presence at that moment. It seemed like the Father had forsaken Him, but He hadn't! Nor will He ever forsake you. 

The statement "My God my, God, why hast thou forsaken me," is truly stated and it is true that was how Jesus felt. But the statement is not a "statement of truth".

To fail to distinguish from what is true and what is truth in the Bible has led to many man-made false doctrines that has many believers living in deception.
