“What Is Truth,” Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ (Jn. 18:38). Although Jesus didn’t answer him there, He answered that question for us in John 17:17, stating simply that God’s word is truth. Just because millions today choose to deny that, does not change that; not one iota (Psalm 119). Many want to tell us today that “truth” is relative; that is, that whatever you believe to be true for you is true for you, and whatever I believe to be true for me is true for me, and even if these two “truths” are both diametrically opposed to each other and God’s standard, they’re both somehow still “true.” They call that “relativism;” I call it “ridiculousism.”
Let’s say that the local authorities have determined that the speed limit on your town’s Main Street is 25 MPH. If your “truth” states that it ought to be 50 MPH, and your teenagers’ “truth” states it ought to be 75 MPH, that isn’t going to avail you one whit when the blue lights of authority start flashing behind you. The all-authoritative and exclusive standard of well-established written truth is what you will ultimately be judged by. The same is true in Christianity (see: Jn. 12:48; Acts 13:46).
And although some well-educated (in some cases “too well educated”) religious peoples’ so-called “truth” says, “salvation is by ‘faith only,’” “once saved, always saved,” and “baptism doesn’t save you,” God’s all-authoritative and exclusive truth says just exactly the extreme opposite (Jms. 2:19-24; Gal. 5:4; 2 Ptr. 2:20-22; 1 Ptr. 3:21; Acts 2:38).
So; whom do you truly believe? That is to say, where and whom is your faith really centered in and on? God, or man (Rom. 3:4)? What is your soul worth to you? Are you truly interested in God’s truth – which is in fact, the only real truth according to Jesus? If so, come and study God’s word with us and we’ll be glad to answer your questions, “book, chapter, and verse,” straight out of the very Word of God. Otherwise, what are those people called again who refuse to hear or listen to God’s word which is truth, according to Jesus (John 8:31-47)? And you shall know the truth…
