Is truth really relevant today in this crazy ever changing world? We boast of our scientific achievements and the knowledge we possess more than any other people that have lived on this planet. But do we really know more than past ages? I thank so, and that makes us more responsible than any other generation.
We debate about what we know, what is right and what we believe about truth. We know so much and still find ourselves with so many questions. “What is truth,” Pilate asked Jesus. The LORD had just finished saying to him, “for this purpose I have come into the world – to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” It was then Christ was crucified.
What is truth today? It depends on who you are listening to. The one which bore witness to the truth still speaks it today! However, when truth becomes irrelevant, it is crucified again. The Bible is clear; the truth that lived after Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection, still lives today, to those that can hear it. Hos 14:9 “…for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
