Can we know the Truth?
I am sure you have heard it said, “None of us have a corner on the Truth” indicating that none of us can know the whole truth. It begs the question “What is Truth?”
It’s interesting that Jesus did not say he had come to testify to part of the Truth. He said “I have come to testify to the Truth” which indicates there is a complete truth. He also said, “I am the Truth!”
This is the best definition I have heard as to what truth is, “Truth is reality as God sees it!” Think about that. I doubt whether we can better that definition. It shows that it is not how we see it, or interpret it, but as God sees it. He alone knows all, and therefore is alone in the understanding of truth. However, he did leave us with the Scriptures and sent the Holy Spirit to “guide us into all truth.”
Just because we may not fully comprehend the truth does not change the truth because:
“Truth is not dependent upon our views or opinions. It is not dependent upon our interpretation. Truth exists as truth in spite of us. So whether we know the truth or accept the truth it makes no difference to the truth. Truth exists without our knowledge, belief or acceptance.”
