    Is there any statement of absolute truth that won't eventually lead to a paradox or contradiction?

    To State, The Absolute Truth, Is God's ... not ... Creation's, business ... This, Is, The Absolute Truth.

    The Absolute Truth "Is" Believing ... Absolutely ... Unconditionally ... Unequivocally.

    The Absolute ... Has nothing to do with Contradictions or Paradoxes ...

    A Persian Proverbial saying ... " The Sun ... Is, the Proof, of the Sun's ... Being " ...

    Paradoxes and Contradiction, are Products of  Rational ... Conditional ... or a "Flawed" Thinkings based, Believing... In ... The ... Is

    If using language to identify truth, yes there will always be paradox.  Language, by itself, cannot describe absolute truth.  This doesn't mean absolute truth doesn't exist, quite the contrary.

    By definition a statement of absolute truth cannot be a contradiction or paradox. However, it is possible that no one can come up with such a statement.

    For example. It is dark outside. That is where I live. On the other side of the world it is incorrect.

    If the statement contains a contradiction within it, then there is a paradox or a contradiction.

    Old example:
    Can God tie a knot he cannot untie?

    Accepting that God is perfect he could tie the perfect knot that could not be untied. But if God untied it, the knot would not be perfect and if God could not untie it, then God would not be perfect, which for Christians would be impossible.

    Words are inventions of humans.

    I heard a speaker refer to something as a half truth. I replied that since truth is absolute, the so called half truth has to be a lie.

    The story is that a King called his counselors together and asked them to find the one phrase that would always, under any circumstance, be true. The answer they came up with was;
    "This too shall pass"

    Yes, in poetry. Or a Zen koan. If you state a paradox beautifully you have an absolute truth. The paradox is the truth.
