“WHAT IS TRUTH?” This question opens up a stream of questions and an ocean of thoughts, but it’s worth exploring. The one who truly seeks for Truth will discover the reason they exist. The search for truth has been the holy grail of humanity throughout history, though the answer was known and originally enjoyed when the first man, Adam, walked and fellowshipped with God in the Garden of Eden. The One who created us (and everything we see) defines Truth.
The Bible teaches that TRUTH IS GOD’S OBJECTIVE JUDGEMENT OF REALITY
● What God sees is unbiased truth. ● God's evaluation is Truth
Humanity lost “Truth” when they lost trust in GOD who defines Truth.
When we trust our own perspective above the One who made us, “WE MAKE OURSELVES GOD”.
This was Adam’s sin and sadly mankind has been challenging God’s truth ever since.
BUT TRUTH IS TRUTH EVEN IF IT IS NOT BELIEVED. OUR CONSCIENCE IS THE LINGERING REMINDER WITHIN that there is right & wrong / good & evil. Shame is the residual effect of crossing those lines. Adam felt shame immediately and hid from the only One who could free him.
If you wonder why some people work so hard to remove God and His Word from society, it’s because…
THEY WANT TO REMOVE THE SHAME THEY FEEL FOR VIOLATING GOD’S TRUTH!
THE GOOD NEWS IS… TRUTH IS KNOWABLE AND HE WANTS TO MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN TO YOU!
1 John 5:20 says “And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.”
