What is Truth?

Eric Hovind November 1st, 2010

I recently received a question in one of our online communities regarding the lack of credit given to creation by the majority of scientists.

Doesn’t it follow that we also shouldn’t accept your arguments? After all, the views of CSE aren’t accepted by authorities in biology, geology, history, anthropology, or physics.

I beg to differ. There are hundreds—even thousands—of scientists who accept the biblical worldview and see it in no way contrary to real science. In Six Days responds to the late Stephen Gould’s assertion that no legitimate scientist believes in the Genesis account of creation. Gould’s entire argument is a red haring. Truth is never decided by “majority opinion.”

Truth

Truth is not relative nor is it subjective. Truth is that which conforms to reality as perceived by God. The good news is that you can come to know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8: 32)! All you have to do is continue in God’s word (v. 31). Here is a quick video to explain “truth.”

Search the Scriptures

The very idea of truth implies a standard. The fact that something can be false logically leads to the idea that there is some standard of truth. Jesus declares that He is the standard of truth. Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me” (John 14:6). Search the Scriptures and know the truth for yourself.
