150. The Power of Belief

Ask yourself: “Why do I believe what I believe? “ Belief is basic to the nature of man; it is the most powerful of all human drives. Because this is so, philosophy has flourished throughout history–the early Greeks are a prime example. Sadly, many of man’s mistaken ideas have infiltrated Christ’s Church itself. Philosophy has always spurred by the question of the nature of life. So the question keeps arising: “What is truth?” just 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 the anchor of the eternal life He has promised.
