As creatures created in God's image we were created for truth by the One Who is Truth. As finite creatures all humans must trust in a standard and source for truth. When we do not trust God and His Word we do not go on without trusting, but rather trust in our faulty and finite reasoning. As the apostle Paul expressed it in Romans 1, our sin is our denial and distortion of the truth that leads us to become people who are deceitful and untrustworthy. Since our sin is never done away with fully in this lifetime, God's people must always be on guard against denials and distortions of truth that lead to deceitful lives. The account of Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob and Esau in Genesis 27, in part, helps us guard against such deceit by revealing to us not only examples of such denials and distortions, but also reminding us that the only living and true God works through them to accomplish his promises.
