In our How to Respond series, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew addresses a question about the reality of truth. There is a difference between truth and opinion. Opinion is a sentiment that is true for some, but not all. In contrast, something that is true, is true for everyone. Some people say that there is no such thing as truth. But think about that for a moment. If there is no such thing as truth, then such a statement must be false, because it is a claim to have truth! Our daily lives are based on the fact that truth exists in conversation, learning and reading. Otherwise what use is any of that? Others say truth is relative and that it varies from one person to the next. But this too is foolish and causes all kinds of problems in life. God is the author of truth and He reveals what is true and what is not true. When a culture rejects truth, it rejects that God who established truth.
