What is Truth?

What is truth? In life you can have people who have different perceptions about many issues and you find that people can create their own versions of what they believe is truth.

For example – you might have a camp of people who believe that there is nothing wrong with abortion and they firmly believe that it’s okay to have an abortion.
Then you will have another camp that opposes abortion and this camp believes that abortion is wrong.
Who is right and who is telling the truth in this case?

Another example is this: You have people who believe that there is only ONE God. However, another group believes that there are MANY gods. But yet still, a third group will tell you that there are NO gods that exist.
Who is right and who is telling the truth in this case?

Are people creating their own “truths” or is there a REAL TRUTH that exists for every situation and circumstance?

 

What TRUTH is NOT
First let’s look at what truth is NOT.
1. Truth is NOT what you want it to be
2. Truth is NOT what the majority says is “true”.
3. Truth is NOT what you feel it should be
4. Truth is NOT what you believe it should be

A lie will always remain a lie. The truth will always remain the truth irrespective of our feelings or perceptions.

 

What is TRUTH?
Truth is telling it like it is. Truth is what corresponds to reality. Truth is whatever is based on the word of God. Most importantly – truth is a Person. Truth is Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that He is THE TRUTH (John 14:6).
Therefore to know the truth – we must have a personal relationship with the Truth Himself – Jesus Christ.
Our understanding of the truth in relation to various life issues and circumstances comes from our relationship with Christ and also with our understanding and application of the word of God.
As we apply the Scriptures in our life we not only have a knowledge of truth but we are also living according to the truth through Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
