Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ was having a conversation with Pontius Pilate, and Pilate asked him a question that many people are asking today; What is Truth? Is it relative, as society would have us believe, or is it something more? BJ Sipe takes us through a study of the concept of Truth, so we might better understand exactly what it is, and where it must come from.
Why is Truth so important? Truth is the measure by which we determine what is right, and what is wrong. Without an objective standard, it is impossible to live by any overarching moral standard. Actions become meaningless, and punishment for immoral actions, be it by government or society, would be impossible because those entities would have no authority by which to enact such punishment.
We understand that for Truth to exist, it must come from authority. If it is subjective, it is no longer Truth as we know it. It must be universal and transcend all borders of time, culture, and space. For it to do so, it cannot merely come from another individual because individuals have no authority in and of themselves.
All of these things point us to the fact that the only place we are going to find Truth are in the words of our Creator, and it’s in looking to God.
