What is truth?

This does open a can of worms. Right?

But, once there was only The Truth GOD offered to humans; that changed when Adam and Eve believed Satan’s lie in the Garden of Eden.  It has been a struggle ever since to ascertain truth from falsehoods.  Humans tend to classify truth: Universal Truth, Relative Truth, Authoritarian Truth, Scientific Truth and so on; the opposite of these logically is easily done by replacing “truth” with “untruth”. A dictionary description can be complicated also:

Truth*

  1. a. Conformity to fact or actuality: Does this story have any truth?
    b. Reality; actuality: In truth, he was not qualified for the job.
    c. The reality of a situation.
  2. a. statement proven to be or accepted as true: truths about nature.
    b. Such statements considered as a group.

    et al . . . . . etc

Many governments ignore or alter truth

WWII German Truths?

Truth has been butchered by technology abused  and minipulated by political leaders, unscuplious businesses, biased media and a host of off beat self proclaimed experts in  too many genres to cover here.

So what are we to do? What are we to tell our children?

Let us step back to the begining: There was GOD and then there was what GOD created.

Genesis 1:31 ESV 

And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

We do have the Bible. The Bible is “the Word of GOD” and it reveals GOD’s truth to us. Let us use it. Let us teach our children how to use it.

Jesus said it clearly without ambiguity:

John 14:6 ESV

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 9:5 ESV 

As long as I (Jesus) am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

AMEN
