What is truth? Where did it originate? Where is it found? Is truth different for every person? Every generation? Every culture?
If a curious 5-year-old asked what does truth mean, would he be met with a quick explanation? Is it a tangible thing?
Today’s society would lead one to believe truth is different for everyone, and it is ok if one person’s truth is not the same as another person’s truth, which makes truth sound like it is something that is just tossed in the wind.
Fortunately, the word of God gives insight into truth and where to find it. When Christ was being questioned by one of his doubting disciples, Jesus replied: “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). Later, when Jesus stood before Pilate, the governor of Judea, who ultimately condemned Jesus to die, he proclaimed to Pilate, “For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to truth” (John 18:37).
Pilate responded, “What is truth?” Pilate was standing face to face with the son of God, who was telling him the truth, but Pilate refused to be persuaded.
Finally, King David concluded in Psalm 119:160: “The sum of Your word is truth.” Truth may not always be easy to accept, but it can be found in God’s word and examined with a person’s heart and mind that God created to have an ability to reason and know the truth.
