How do we really know if what we believe is the real truth? This is especially true when we hear other people say, “well that isn’t my truth.” If that isn’t their truth can we really believe that we have different truths than someone sitting next to us?
The truth cannot and does not change with the times. It cannot change from person to person like a favorite ice cream flavor. The truth is only real if it is the truth from the beginning of time until the end. It can only be real if it is the same for every single person on earth. In many instances people confuse opinion or even experiences with what the truth is. The fact is that the truth doesn’t need our approval based on scientific or medical studies or even specific professional opinions. The truth stands alone and is everlasting and unchanging which contradicts what most of us see as the truth in our lives. I’ve heard many people say “well Christianity isn’t the only truth out there and it isn’t one that I choose to believe”. And these people honestly believe they can pick what truth they want and that for them that truth will be true for their lives and their eternity. They also believe that they will get to choose how their afterlife will play out.
If you read my post Do You Know Who You Are Quoting you will know I am careful about whom I quote. I sometimes find that certain non-christians fall into this category of hooking onto the heart of Christians with a glimmer of the real truth. Humanist, Aldous Huxley happens to be one of such men. He once said, “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” The truth is that facts about the truth can be ignored but that doesn’t erase what the truth is. As you look at many different religions and beliefs there seems to be a hint of rational truth in their words that either sounds familiar or right to you. But there is only one truth. We don’t get to pick what truth is right for us because truth has to be right for everyone in order for it to be valid.
If you are one of those people thinking that truth is like an A la carte line I hope my words about seeking The truth encourage you to dig deeper into what you know as truth. I pray that you keep asking questions and seeking answers to what the real truth is.
Truth is not based on what people say of you or about their vision on world views. It is the cornerstone that has already been rejected but it can never be destroyed. Many will try to distort what truth really is and that is where confusion takes its appointed seat. Even Paul warned people during his time of this confusion and we should also heed that same warning. If the truth was threatened then, it will be threatened today as well. If you think seeking the truth looks more like a battle you are right. It is a battle for your heart. Everything pertinent to truth involves your heart.
Another important thing to remember about the truth is that it does not adapt to our needs or our experiences. For instance, why is the sky blue? It isn’t blue because Scientists have deemed it to be so. It is blue because that is how it was created to be. Or what about gravity? Gravity was not birthed into existence when we discovered it. It has always been there and is apart of our creation. It doesn’t need us to exist. It simple is.
Our revelation on truth is only revealed to us because our eyes have become open to that truth. This revelation is not to be confused with anything that we somehow manifest into our consciousness. It is the revelation afforded to us by the Holy Spirit that we know what is The Truth. Truth is not a reality that you create for yourself but it is the actual and living thing that sets you free and gives you purpose. And these things will never be taken away from you.
Do you know the truth?
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
