Relative Truth

It can be confusing living in a world with so many different value systems. What’s ok with one person offends another in an increasingly secular society that doesn’t follow one major moral standard. Part of the checks and balances of a moral society is the peer pressure that keeps the majority of its citizens from committing offenses that are destructive to everyone. We may think we’re living in a time that’s worse than ever, but the conversation between Jesus and Pilot in John 18:37 reminds us that Rome’s secular worldview left, even its own authorities, questioning what truth really is.

Jesus said to Pilot, “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilot responds by asking Jesus a rhetorical question as he leaves, “what is truth?” Do you understand the truth friend? Have you read and heard enough of God’s Word to equip yourself with God’s moral code so you won’t be confused by a world gone astray? The word truth means Alpha in the original language. Who would you consult, but He who was in the beginning and created everything that followed? There was a time when respect for the Bible was foundational in our society. There’s been enough generations who are un-churched and Biblically ignorant that the spiritual fabric our nation was founded on is unraveling, because what once made us strong is eroding our foundation.

But, like Pilot, under all that cynicism people have about such things, a God given desire to know the truth remains. Even those who make fun of and persecute Christians conceal a hollowness that only faith can fill. Truth also means to believe, not in anything, but in a reality that’s beyond mere carnal sight. In this same passage, Jesus said to Pilot, “If My kingdom were of this world My servants would fight…but I was born to bear witness to the truth.” As a servant of the King, are you daily fighting the spiritual battle that’s not of this world according to Eph. 6:12 “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness.” I encourage you to fight the good fight of faith according to Tim. 6:12.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
