-What is truth? In the metaphysical statement of logic it is stated that “No statement can be both true and false”

-It really depends upon where your source of truth lies. If you follow the belief of the northern folks 20 degrees can be quite pleasant, but if you follow their southern counterparts they might say 20 degrees is blustery and unacceptable. It depends upon who you follow and what their belief is.

-This however, is where we get into the problems with statements of “what may be true for you may not be for me”. Does this argument hold water? Can something both be true and yet false at the same time?

-Can you believe something and it is true and yet I believe something totally different and it also is true?

-Can there both be a God and not be a God? Can there be a Savior and yet not be a Savior? Is there sin that we are accountable for and yet no accountability needed? WOW, we could go much deeper, but we will stop there. I think you can see the dilemma we face.

-This argument has lasted for centuries and no conclusive answer has come yet. This tells me that there is a need, a need for truth, an absolute if you will; something to stand on, stand in, be part of, it be part of you.

-Imagine living your life with no truth. With statements like, “It can’t be true that if I jump into the fire I will get burned.” Or “If I don’t eat I won’t die.” If life was lived on speculation, or opinion based on incomplete information only, our existence would be meaningless. There would be no point, no direction, no warning, no advise, no ABSOLUTE.

-Let us take this thought a little further, imagine facing eternity and the uncertainty of it without any truth. Oh we may make up some things in our mind about what to believe and what not, but does that make the truth any less true?

-No it just means that we are facing the eternal side of life with uncertainty.

-Michael Faraday, the great scientist, was taken ill. When it became evident that the sickness that had fastened itself upon him would soon result in his death, a group of fellow scientists came to see him--not so much to talk about science as to talk about death. One of them said to him: "Mr. Faraday, what are your speculations about your future?" With evident surprise to them he replied: "Speculations! I have none. I am resting on certainties." Then he quoted II Tim. 1:12: "For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day."

-I don’t know about you but I would rather face this life with no truth that eternity with no truth.

-For those that do not believe in Christ as the ONLY way to the Father, and to those that believe He is, one of us is incredibly wrong, tragically wrong.

-You have to make a decision today, Is this word that we read and call the Scriptures, ancient in nature and proven stable and reliable, is IT true, or is my thought of who Christ is true?

-You either have to live life as if it is totally true or live life as if it is not true at all.
