What Is Truth?

Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?” “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “It was your people and your chief priests who handed you over to me. What is it you have done?” Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.” “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” “What is truth?” Pilate asked. (John 18:33–38, NIV 1984).

My Musings – “So much information, so little truth.” (Kevin Rutledge). We have more information available to us today than we’ve ever had before. Just a mouse click, or channel click away from the comfort of our own home. Finding the information, that’s the easy part. Finding the truth by sifting through all that information, not so easy. With all that information it should be easier than it has ever been before. But which information can you believe? How do you verify that the information you have is true?

The reality is, it’s never been harder to find the truth. The irony is the truth has been with us all along. Available in more languages than ever before. And under attack more than ever before. So, who can you believe? The One who came to testify to the truth. The One who is the truth?”

My Advice – Pilate asked, “What is truth?” Truth stood before him, but he failed to recognize Him. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, NIV 1984). Have you recognized Him for who He is? You really should. He died so you could.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
