Why Truth is better than Experience…

These are a few thoughts that Todd Wagner, Senior Pastor of Watermark Community Church in Dallas, shared with staff today.  Some good concepts.

Why truth is better than experience:


  • Experience is inconsistent from person to person
  • Experience  can tell what happened but does not always explain why it happened
  • Experience can be “misremembered”
  • Experience can produce arrogance that isolates and separates us from others who have not endured or enjoyed similar events


  • Truth is consistent
  • Truth explains what, how and why
  • Truth is always there and can be tested
  • Truth unites and is available to everyone

Don’t let experience interpret Scripture.  Make sure Scripture interprets experience.
