If you listen to news sources in the mainstream media today, you really can’t know if you are even hearing the truth anymore.
So, what is truth?That seems to be a question that causes a great debate among philosophers. In this, two types of truths have been defined: Relative Truth and Absolute Truth. Relative truth seems to suggest that there is no absolute truth.
Relative truth says that truth is a “subjective value according to differences in perception and consideration.” This means that truth varies according to an individuals perception. In the current U.S. political and social climate, this is the type of truth that seems to permeate our society.
Absolute truth is seen as “an unalterable and permanent fact.” This view of Truth has been established by God and is unchangeable.
Unfortunately, humans resist God and develop their own ‘truths” which are in direct conflict with God.
We live in a day that God’s Truth is being brought into question. Many “religions” are changing the view of truth. But there is only One Truth that will get us to a place with God that He desires for us.
