It is only by faith that the Christian avows his doctrines as entirely factual though it be not even for the earthbound elect to sensually observe the excellences of God as by direct consequence proceeding from Him (1 Corinthians 13:12, 2 Corinthians 5:6-7).
Saying that the Word of God is sufficient and that God’s Word is truth does not just mean that it contains truth. It means that Scripture is sufficient for determining truth and that it is the measure of truth when it comes to subject matter related to the Bible.
Can we be assured that there really is truth in this fallen world where lies and deceit often reign? Is there a way to discern truth from lies? And is there anyone we can trust who knows and speaks truth and causes us to desire it in the inward heart?
What is truth? Just like Pilate, many today are asking that question. Oprah Winfrey, at the 75th Annual Golden Globes, stated, “Speaking ‘your truth’ is the most powerful tool we have.” These days everyone has their own “truth,” which has completely redefined what the word means. In fact it has turned the word “truth” into a lie.
