Welcome to an elite group of thinkers,” the sages of the ages;” Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, and many other philosophers who have been seeking the answer to this very question. It wasn’t until Jesus Christ came to earth that it was answered clearly and directly.
Jesus said, “I am the truth.” (John 14:6) He is the embodiment of truth about all of creation and life’s really important and significant matters; life and death, heaven and hell, sin and righteousness, creation and evolution, good and evil and so many more including even the little things in life.
Webster defines truth as, “that which is true; that which conforms to fact or reality.” Jesus’ life is a fact and He is the ultimate reality. In order to know the truth one needs to know Jesus, not just know about Him.
A few of Jesus’ profound truth statements for you to carefully consider are;
- “You must be born-again to gain eternal life.” (John 3:3)
- “No one comes to the Father (heaven) except through Me.” (John 14:6)
- “The Father and I are one.” (John 10:30)
- “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born I Am.” (In this statement Jesus confirmed He was God, I Am, and eternal, i.e., He existed before Abraham in eternity past.) (John 8:58)
Remember, truth is always truth. Two plus two is always four. Jesus’ words are truth although many choose to believe otherwise at their own peril.
One final thought on truth. It is a truth that every human being ever created that does not repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior when they die they will face God as Judge on Judgment Day. That’s a sobering truth that needs to be remembered and considered seriously. It’s a truth that should be a life changer. The ‘Good News’ is that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Examine the Gospel of John to discover more of Jesus’ surprising truth statements. You won’t be disappointed.
