We live in a culture that has drifted from the foundations of absolute truth. Its drifting does not change the reality of, or the certainty of, absolute truth. Although those that believe truth is relative think they are free and independent and the master of their own fate, sadly the exact opposite is true. In fact, they are in bondage and blinded by the deceptions of the devil.
I can hear their response now: “That may be true for you but it’s not true for me.” Or “That may be your truth but that is not my truth.” If you really consider those statements they are contrary even within themselves.
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. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. 1 John 5:20-21
But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King. Jeremiah 10:10
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 1 John 1:9
…my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. John 6:32
He who sent me is true…John 7:28
I am the true vine…John 15:1
And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. John 17:3
Now there would be those that couldn’t care less that the Bible says that God is THE ONE TRUE GOD, seeing it as self-proclamation of truth with no more weight than if I were to say that I was Queen of England. They would argue that saying it doesn’t make it true, which is a true statement (but of course they do not know God.)
However, for anyone who genuinely wants to know the truth about TRUTH, there are mounds of extra-Biblical evidence out there that confirms the accuracy of the Bible. It is well worth the effort to do some research.
I am so very thankful that in this wild, crazy, fallen world there is ONE that is unchanging, steadfast and TRUE. To Him we run, to Him we cling for we know with absolute certainty that He is unwavering and secure. HE IS TRUE AND EMBODIES TRUTH IN JESUS CHRIST. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. John 14:6
That is not just my truth, it is true and it is true for every last molecule in the universe and not just because I said so.
Rejoice in Truth today.
