"Changing Lives by the Power of Christ"

Is Truth Relative??

I pushed the accelerator.  My clunker moaned its way up Monte Sano Mountain.  In my rear view mirror, an apple red car approached in the left lane–a Trans Am.  It glided its way up the mountain, a regal Cinderella, shimmering its way passed my ugly step-sister car.

I remember that angel of motor vehicles twenty-five years later.

Which is why I argue to my husband that Trans Ams are better than his preference–Mustangs.

Am I right?  Is he right?  Can we both be right?

Is truth relative?

So, the Trans Am vs. Mustang scenario is open for debate.

But what about the example Deb uses in this week’s video?  If you were in a car accident, you were obviously not at fault, and a huge settlement was at stake…Would truth be relative?

What about questions about God’s deity and Christ’s Lordship?

The Bible is the source of truth.

“Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.” (John 17:17)

The Bible is “the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)

“Your word is true from the beginning: and every one of your righteous judgments endures forever.” (Psalm 119:160)

“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:32)

Jesus is the Source of Truth.

Pilot mutters the question to Jesus, “What is truth?” (John 18:37-38)

“Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Is Truth Relative? I really like GotQuestions.org and 20 Bible Verses about the Power of Truth.  It’s where I sourced some of my material.  But the sites doesn’t necessarily reflect the views of Central Valley Church of Christ or her elders.  Please contact us if you have questions.
