What is Truth?

John 18:38 – Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?

No doubt countless people have asked this question, and numerous more have attempted to answer it. The search for truth is a confession that many profess but few have.

Many believe in relative truth. They insist that what is true for you, might not be true for me. But the Bible is absolute truth just like the laws of gravity and the rules of Mathematics. And as such, it declares truth in an untarnished way. There is a heaven and a hell; righteousness and sin; God and Satan.

Jesus Christ Himself said that the God of the Bible was the “true God” (John 17:3) and He Himself “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Any other “god” is a fraud; a fake.

The problem man has with truth is not finding it, but running from it. God wants all men to know the truth and be forgiven of their sins and saved from hell (1 Tim. 2:4). He has given us a perfect absolute revelation of truth in the King James Bible.

You can know the truth as an absolute imperative. The truth is not relative and dependent on interpretation and opinion! The God who created you seeks to save you from your sins and hell. He has given you the truth in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the written revelation called the Bible. Why not turn from all the lies of false religion (salvation by works and deeds) and turn to the God of the Bible? Jesus Christ died for your sins. You cannot save yourself. If you reject the Lord Jesus Christ you will spend eternity in hell and the rest of your life enslaved to “relative truth.” Instead, receive the truth and be set free from your sins and the punishment thereafter.

Jesus said “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).
