A Word of  Encouragement from our
Director of Missions

“The Truth is the Truth”

   In his book, Truth Decay, Steve Hale addresses “the truth about truth.” He quotes from Norman Geisler and Frank Turek who list some basic criteria for truth:

  • Truth is transcultural: if something is true, it is true for all people, in all places, at all times. (2+2=4 for everyone, everywhere at every time.)
  • Truth is unchanging even though our beliefs about truth change. (When we began to believe the earth was round instead of flat, the truth about the earth didn’t change, only our belief about the earth changed.)
  • Truth is not affected by the attitude of the one professing it. (An arrogant person does not make the truth he professes false. A humble person does not make the error he professes true.)
  • All truths are absolute truths.
  • Beliefs can not change the truth, no matter how sincerely something is believed to be true. (Someone can sincerely believe the world is flat, but that only makes him or her sincerely mistaken.)
  • Truth is discovered, not invented. It exists independent of anyone’s knowledge of it. (Gravity existed prior to Newton’s discovery of it.)

Hale adds, “Truth is not a subjective matter of taste, but an objective matter of fact.” Truth is truth! And the truth about truth is that Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but though (Him)” John 8:32. He said to God, the Father, about us, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” The Bible is the truth revealed and Jesus is the truth personified. Both are absolutely true. Do you know the truth? Do you believe the truth? Do you live the truth? ...the truth is the truth!

   Encouragingly yours, Russell Cook
