What is Truth

In John chapter 18 verses 37 & 38 we read:

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.  Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” “What is truth?” Pilate asked.

To this very day we continue to ask, “What is truth?” Some see truth as relative, that is what is true for me may not be true for you. Political correctness would say all is truth. Buddha would say that the object is to have no desires at all.  Can all opinions be truth? By that, I mean in the end there can only be one truth.  If a claim is false, then truth exists, and if a claim is true, the truth exists Truth is unchangeable. It is impossible for truth to change. Believing something is true does not make it true.

C.S. Lewis wrote, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
