What is true?

This may seem to be an odd question at first, because everyone knows what is true by simply checking out the facts. Then, after checking the facts, things get muddled up and it is no longer so simple. When our Lord Jesus stood before Pilate, He told him, “I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate responded with, “What is truth?” This was basically, Pilate thinking himself to be more intelligent than he was in reality or what is known as a pseudointellectual. There are a number of methods in determining the truth, as already mentioned, we can use what is known as the Socratic method of asking questions until we can deduct what is true. This is the method used of our legal system in determining a suspect, then determining either guilt or innocence. The problem is with when someone lies or false evidence has been placed or someone makes a mistake as to what they saw or think they saw. There are those who believe that it is not possible to know the truth, these are known as agnostics which means “don’t know”. The Bible counters this conclusion with we can know the truth and the truth will set us free (John 8:32). Just as God is the ultimate creator, the ultimate morality, He is the ultimate truth. Therefore, for one to know truth one must know the one who is the truth (John 14:6).
