Truth is Absolute

What is truth? Truth is the way things really are and there is no shed of relativism. Truth is that reality as perceived by God.

The Lord Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

We human beings know that there is an All-Knowing, All-Powerful, perfectly Holy, Just God–Who would judge us one day. This is just a given. Ecclesiastes 3:11 tells us that”He [God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

It is obviously clear that we know we are sinners and that we need to be forgiven. But because of our fallen state, we fail to think of God’s infinite holiness. God is infinitely Holy, and there is no way we could be at peace with Him unless we be perfectly holy as He is. We cannot be perfect. We are hopeless apart from the grace, mercy and love of the God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

We need the peace of mind that assures us we have been reconciled before this infinitely worthy God. We are looking for ways to silence the screams of our conscience that we have violated God’s Laws and we have offended His majesty. To claim that what’s true for others may not be true for somebody else is just nonsense. Truth is important; relativism is not the answer to the haunting conscience. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Way.

What is the truth really all about? Truth is all about God. We are made by God. All search for truth must end up in God because all truth is in  God. But, the unconverted don’t want this. People are willing to accept any so-called truth as long as it would not demand that they bow their knees before this glorious God. All truth is in Jesus Christ for He is God; he is the Truth incarnate.

The Lord Jesus Christ is not only the Way to salvation, the Truth for our existence, but He is also the very life from Whom we get our purpose, satisfaction, joy and identity. He is and forever will be the object of our existence. Thus, eternal life is needed for a person to spend an eternity with this infinitely awesome God.

The real Jesus according to the Bible is God in human flesh. Chapters like John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1, and Revelation 1 deal with the Divinity of Christ at length; though there are plenty of short verses that mentioned the Divinity of Christ like Romans 9:5, 2 Peter 1:1, etc.

The liberal scholars are not liberals because of the evidence from history and archaeology; it is rather because of their sins that they would pervert the truth and lead others astray.

No elect of God would ever be lost because of these pseudo scholars. However, we must honor God by proclaiming and defending the truth. We cannot simply ignore the blasphemies of these outright liars.  And we must proclaim and defend these truths for the glory of God, and for the sake of the elect; that those who are not yet saved would be saved by the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that those who are already believers would have a boost of confidence in their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I know that faith and trust are made possible by the Holy Spirit through the testimony of Scripture. Let us therefore hold fast to the written Word of God and not waver from its testimonies.
