Truth, what is truth?

Updated on February 24, 2016

Despite the many variants, truth does exist.

John 18:38 (King James Version)

First, truth is absolute. Truth is perceived through objective observation and resultant inferences. Please note these truths.
1. Order does not spontaneously arise from disorder.
2. Life cannot arise from non-living.
3. The DNA/ RNA replicating system had to be PERFECT, for life to exist.
4. Perfection cannot come from imperfection.
5. The Universe had a beginning.
6. The Bible agrees with this.
7. The Bible is the most attested ancient book available.
8. The accuracy of transmission [the copying of ancient manuscripts over the centuries have by far been accurate]
9. All that can be proven in the Bible, have been proven accurate.
10. The Bible says it was inspired of Yahweh/ Jehovah, and that Jehovah created all things through His Word, who was sent as a perfect man to pave the way for a reconciliation of obedient members of mankind.
11. The Bible is not a book of science, history or culture, but all have been corroborated with known facts.
12. The Bible itself has many prophecies, many have come true, some are yet to be fulfilled, but it predicted that many would not believe, many would be misled, and even, many who claim to worship God, will prove false.


John 4: 23 reads: Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the TRUE WORSHIPERS will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for SUCHLIKE ones to worship him.   


The Scripture above suggests that at the time of Jesus’ ministry, the established religion back then [Pharisees and Sadducees] were REALLY NOT worshiping God Almighty with SPIRIT and TRUTH. Indeed, both sects tried in vain to trap Jesus Christ with questions; on responding Jesus not only EXPOSED their FAULTY way of thinking but CONDEMNED them as hypocrites. Matthew 15: 4 – 9; John 8: 42 – 45.


Daniel 12: 9, 10 read: And he went on to say: “Go, Daniel, because the words are made secret and sealed up until the TIME of the END. Many will

CLEANSE themselves and will WHITEN themselves and will be REFINED. And the wicked ones will certainly act wickedly, and NO wicked one at all will UNDERSTAND; but the ones having insight will understand.


From the above Scriptures, the fact that a CLEANSING and WHITENING is mentioned suggests that there was an APOSTASY, or CONTAMINATION of true worship. This is supported by many Scriptures example; 1 Timothy 4: 1; 2 Timothy 4: 1-4; 2 Peter 2: 1- 3; 2 John 7 – 11;

2 Thessalonians 2: 1- 12.


1 Timothy 4: 1 reads: However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and TEACHINGS of DEMONS.


2 Peter 2: 1 – 3 read: However, there also came to be FALSE PROPHETS among the people, as there will also be FALSE TEACHERS among you. These very ones will QUIETLY bring in DESTRUCTIVE SECTS and will disown even the OWNER that bought them, bringing speedy destruction among themselves. Furthermore, MANY will FOLLOW their acts of LOOSE CONDUCT, and account of these the way of the truth will be spoken of abusively. Also, with covetousness they will EXPLOIT you with COUNTERFEIT WORDS. But as for them, the judgment from of old is not moving slowly, and the destruction of them is not slumbering.   


So, then, there can be NO DOUBT that a FALL-AWAY from TRUE worship was PREDICTED and IS evident TODAY.


True Christians


Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers, will worship the Father  with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. John 4:23


If you ask anything in my name, I will do it, "If you love me, you will observe my commandments; and I will request the Father and he will give you another helper to be with you forever, the spirit of the TRUTH, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds it nor knows it..... John 14:14-17.


He that has my commandments and observes them, that one is he who loves me. In turn he that  loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and plainly show myself to him." John 14: 21.


Most truly I say to you. He that exercises faith in me, that one also will  do the works that I do; ...... John 14:12.


They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world.

Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. Just as you sent me forth into the world, I also sent them forth into the world. And I am sanctifying myself in their behalf, that they also may be sanctified by means of truth. "I make request, not these only, but also concerning those putting faith in me through their word; in order that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me, and I am in union with you, that they also may be in union with us, in order that  the world may believe that you sent me forth. John 17:16-21.


Righteous Father, the world has, indeed not come to know you, but I have come to know you, and these have come to know that you sent me forth. And I have made your NAME known to them and will make it known in order that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them."  John 17:25-26.


As for the believers from among the nations, we have sent out, rendering our decision that they  should keep themselves from what is sacrificed to idols as well as from blood and what is strangled and from fornication. Acts 21:25.

see also Acts 15: 28, 29.

.......... the fruitageof the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23. 


But we think it proper to hear from you what your thoughts are, for truly as regards this sect it is known to us that everywhere it is spoken against. Acts 28:22


If you were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on this account the world hates you. John 15:19.  see also 1 Peter 4:4.


Subject yourselves, therefore to God, but oppose the Devil, and he will flee from you. Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you indecisive ones. James 4:7-8.
