“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
In the Bible, truth is closely connected to God. Apart from Him, there is no absolute truth — as many philosophers and scientists have concluded. Apart from God, we can’t get beyond truth as a subjective, cultural idea. Therefore, many consider truth an invalid and outdated concept. That has huge consequences for ethics, to name just one field, since there is no longer an absolute starting point on which to base our moral decisions. Without absolute truth, there is no absolute right or wrong, good or bad.
The absence of absolute truth also leads to religious relativism: everybody can choose which beliefs he or she prefers to follow, but nobody can claim that his or her faith is the only true one. This clashes with Jesus’ claim that He is the truth and the only way to the Father.
Nowadays, many people search for “their own truth”. But the Bible makes clear that there is absolute truth in God. Truth is the reality He has created. All truth must ultimately be defined in terms of God.
