2000 years ago, Pontius Pilate asked Jesus Christ, what is truth? But he asked without wanting to know the answer. He did not wait to hear His response. Pontius Pilate was insincere by asking the question. 2000 years later, we are asking the same question, and some of us are not willing to want to know the answer. Not only is it due to bias reasons, where it is uncomfortable for our own preconceived notions to be challenged; but spiritual blindness because of the issue of sin. Therefore, the truth in plain sight is not seen. Explaining the fact why there is a sense of feeling empty, tormented and lost.
The Bible says, Jesus Christ is the word of God. The Greek translation of the word is logos, logic. The word itself gives meaning by reason according to its purpose as it pertains to reality. Providing a framework or context. The word has definition. The definition of the word provides a context, which interprets the reality of the reason of its purpose. E.g. the word of God is God. Jesus Christ is the word of God. Therefore, Jesus Christ is God. This syllogism, an logical out working based upon a logical deduction proves it. So in order, for something to be true it must demonstrate the reality why it is true, referring to its meaning and purpose.
“1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:1-5
The fact is established according to the word of God. The fact is established according to the word of God by God. For He defines reality. The word of God could be defined as the definition of God, defining reality. God’s word must refer to reality, and reality must refer to His word. Substantiating facts, referring to His word or proving His word in referral to reality. Thus, God’s word is truth. John 17:17
The Ten Commandments are also truth, Psalm 119:151. The Ten Commandments are the transcript of God’s character. A moral Decalogue, which objectively resonates with our conscience of what the truth is. Meaning, we all individually know conscientiously of what is morally acceptable according to the truth of God’s Commandments. There is then, 3 Biblical definitions of truth. The word of God, Jesus Christ and the Ten Commandments, and all these 3 are 1. They are all one because they are all of God. Demonstrating the truth to be transcendent, immutable, moral, objective and exclusive.
Millions are universally led and prompted around the world by the Holy spirit to God’s word. To know the truth in Jesus Christ. The truth is something that could only be accepted by faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Hence, Jesus said if you continue in my word, you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. For He is the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the father, but by Him. John 8:30-32 and John 14:6.
