WHAT IS TRUTH




  Many individual are so ill today because  they have made themselves ill. They refuse to be bearers of truth.They lie to themselves and others. Some of us prize ourselves as tellers of truth  . But what is truth?

 


Recently I was invited to lunch by an elderly friend. She also invited a young lady and her eight year old son. There were actually six of us sitting at the table. The little boy was trying to get out of eating his lunch by doing all sorts of pranks to the point that they became annoying.
You see the menu was strictly vegetarian with some sort of vegetarian burger for the chief protein. (Meat) There was rice and peas, scalloped sweet potato, friend plantain, boiled Renta yam, and boiled pumpkin accompanied by a tossed salad and coconut cookies as desert.

His mom dished out the rice and peas, the burger and the salad on his plate. He talked about his recent hospital visit for an asthma attack and started to complain about how his tummy was aching. He actually went to the bath room.  Next he pretended he was having an asthma attack. His mom kept telling him to stop that. But he pull or manner of tricks. His last was to pretend he was asleep at the table.


His mom told him to stop pretending and get on with eating his food. He straightened up and began laughing. In all this he did not taste a single morsel of the food. She then mentioned to his that the meat on his plate was the burger meat that they put into the burger king.   At this point he said “Oh Yeh”; dive into the food and in no time the plate was empty of every scrap of food.

With his antics gone everyone was more at ease at the table and finished their meal, then went into a light conversation about cornmeal pudding, and how to get it really yummy like grand ma’s old  time cornmeal pudding
.
We all retired   to the living room and he went to play the piano. One of the individuals asked a question
Relating to truth, another asked what is truth? and that became the topic of the afternoon  conversation then.
One person said that truth is dependent on the person who is asking the question and what the person is willing to accept as truth, therefore truth is relative. Another said it is when there is

so-spacerun: yes;"> no other answer could be the right answer.

The person who started the conversation said what does the bible says truth is? The place to find the answer would be the Bible.
He said, what are the scripture passages that give a definition for truth? One person quoted one but could not tell where it was found. The person who started the conversion asked what tools could you use to help you. Another said the Bible concordance. Surely there were two instances in the concordance.

He said there were three. None of us could tell or find the third. So he patiently told us where it was found .We look it up and there is was.

Here are the Bible passages;
 ST. John 14:6 Jesus said unto them I am the way the truth the life no man cometh unto the father but by me (truth is Jesus Christ)

St John 17:17   Sanctify them through thy truth thy word is truth. (Truth is God’s word)

Psalm 119: 151   Thou art near oh God and all thy commandments are truth.  (Truth is God’s  Commandments)

1 John 4:6     It is the spirit that beareth  forth witness  because the spirit is truth

How can we justify truth along this Bible definition  after recognizing that truth should not be relative?
Let us look at the little boy’s attitude. He said he was not hungry was he being truthful If, If  truth is relative one could answer may be yes.  However  the conditions change and he heard that the meat was the same used  by Burger King  for making burgers he was suddenly hungry

However according Christ definition Truth is not relative. It does not change according to the
  Circumstances

1.       Truth as the commandment does not change it stand for ever

   2    Truth as .Jesus Christ, His principles and way of life does not change they are the same yesterday,
        today, and tomorrow.
             
3          Truth as the word of God: God speaks and what he speaks stands He does not lie neither change4.
   
4         Truth  as the spirit of God. God is a spirit and when we worship him we must do so in spirit and   the truth



These three instances of truth found in the Bible are not debatable or relative .There is no doubt in truth. The lad had left us to doubt because he kept  changing the reasons for him not wanting to eat.
Then when it suited him he was immediately hungry and all the illnesses mysteriously disappeared...


How do we as individuals align our lives with truth? How do people who associate with us see us as bearers of truth? We have no control by ourselves .They can only see us as bearers of truth as we align our lives with Jesus through daily communion , by studying His words  and by  allowing the dwelling of the  Holy Spirit.
