In a world of fake news, how can we determine what is truth? It seems people are establishing their own standard, believing what they want to believe and turning it into their own truth. That’s a dangerous thing to do.
When Pilate asked Jesus if He was indeed the King of the Jews, Jesus responded, “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” (John 18:37). Pilate responded with this question:
What is truth? John 18:38
That’s a good question, isn’t it? Thankfully, God has given us His Word as a solid, unchanging standard. We may not find exact verbiage pertaining to modern-day issues, but we will always find a backbone of principles that will help us stand straight and walk with confidence. If we know the truth, the truth will indeed set us free (John 8:32).
What is YOUR standard for determining truth?
