Ask yourself: “Why do I believe what I believe? “ To believe is basic to the nature of man; it is the most powerful of all human drives. Because this is so, philosophy has flourished throughout our history, the early Greeks being a prime example. Sadly, man’s ideas have taken root to the extent of infiltrating Christ’s Church itself. Because the nature of life is what has always spurred philosophy, the question keeps arising: “What is truth?” as Pilate asked Jesus while examining Him.
Truth is simply reality—things the way they really are, not as we wished they were. Absolute truth is derived from God’s revelation, because only He knows how things truly are. What God has revealed is found most prominently in the Bible, of course. Get to know your Bible intimately and you will find His truth deeply rooted as an anchor of the eternal life He has promised.
