What is Truth? This world that we live has come up with many definitions of what truth is. However, which one is correct, they can't be all right? In this reading from John 18, we delve deeper into understanding what absolute truth is and why the world refuses to accept it.
My life will rest upon the Lord,
In my God, will I find comfort for my soul.
For the Almighty is full of truth and never lies,
Covenants He makes, He never breaks.
My life will have peace in the Lord,
In my God, I will find security for my soul.
For my King is faithful in all things,
He will always provide for His flock.
My life will have grace in the Lord,
In my God, I will find favor for my soul.
For my Savior loves me without any condition,
He loves me so much that He died for me.
My life will have hope in the Lord,
In my God, I will have a future for my soul.
For my Messiah is greater than all things,
The power of God surpasses all understanding.
Therefore I will have strength in the Lord,
In my God, I will have power for my soul.
2 Corinthians 1:20-22
The Christian life rests on a foundation of God’s promises for today and for the future. We can trust everything that our heavenly Father has said to us, because His Word shows Him to be …
Truthful. The Lord knows what is true and speaks honestly in all matters. We can be assured of this because He is holy; there is no sin in Him. He is also omniscient and understands everything (Heb. 4:12-13). His promises are based on His infinite knowledge and truthfulness.
Faithful. Scripture compares the Lord to a shepherd who “gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart” (Isa. 40:11 NIV). What He has planned for us, He will bring to fruition (Phil. 1:6). Our heavenly Father does not waver in His intentions or will.
Loving. God’s love for us was demonstrated at the cross. He sent His Son…

The purpose of God’s Word is not only to inform people about God and His nature. While it is true that we learn a lot about the Lord in reading the text, but to claim that the Bible is just a portrait of the Almighty would be just scratching the surface.
The purpose of God’s Word is to transform us into His very image, which was what we were created to be in the first place. When God’s looks at us, He wants to see His reflection in us. This is possible only when we allow His Words to transform us from the inside out.
Have you allowed the Lord’s Word examine your heart and soul? Have you let it reveal the aspects of your life that mar the image of the Almighty in you? It is time for us to be sincere in self-examining ourselves as we read the Bible, to read deeper into its words and discern what aspect in our lives does it want to change.
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the LORD are sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is clear, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb. ~Psalm 19:7-10 (CEB)
What if, instead of reading the Bible, you let the Bible read you? … What would happen if we approached the test less aggressively but even more energetically and passionately? I wonder what would happen if we honestly listen to the story and put ourselves under its spell… not using it to get all our questions about God answered but instead trusting God to use it to…

We live in a world that is spiritually confused. There are many who claim that there are many ways to heaven and yet they also say that their way is the only way. No wonder a lot of people just give up all together and have no religion.
We must make no mistake, there is only one truth that is absolute. Truth is not based on one’s point of view as some people say. If we claim this, it would be like saying you believe that the sky is red when in reality it is blue!
So how do we find the absolute truth? We find it by examining what others say and determine if it truly holds water. As for me I have found the truth and the life; and that is in Christ. I learned this as I read His Bible and I find His words are consistent throughout and they offer the way to a fulfilling life, which is found only in Him. Seek out the Scriptures and you will agree with me.
How great is our God and I will sing my praises to Him. Click on the Images and worship with me.

( Matthew 7:13-14 KJV ) “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”!!
( John 14:6 KJV ) “Jesus saith unto him, I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man ( or anyone ) cometh unto the Father, but by ME.”!!

What is the purpose of going to church? People in the West, with their consumer like mentality, have forgotten what it means to go to church. They begin to view it as like one going to a concert or watching a movie! May this never be!
There are many ideas out there about what is truth. One of those ideas was a line of thought called postmodernism. What implications does this philosophy hold and does it go along with Scripture?
