The most important thing that an individual, a community and a nation can do is to embrace the truth. The truth does not ebb and flow in the tide of relativism, but stands firm on the rock of absolutism.

The truth is the truth regardless of opinion and belief. Truth is based on factuality. Facts supported by evidence, and the testimony of reliable witness.

Some people believe that Jews should be exterminated and that white people are superior to coloured people (Adolf Hitler).  others believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people and that people should not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character (Martin Luther King).

Some people believe that gay people have a right to marry. Others believe that marriage is an institution ordained by God for the procreation of humanity, and is therefore exclusive to heterosexual relationships.

Some people believe that ethnic and ancestral rights allow ownership of the earth and its elements. Other people believe that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof and is there for all of humanity. What is the truth?

The word truth is referred to in the bible almost 200 times (NASB). Jesus said; You will know the truth and the truth will
set you free.

John wrote, ’Gods word is truth.’

Paul said, ‘I am telling you the sober truth.’

Pilate asked, ‘What is truth? ‘

Jesus said, ‘I am the truth.’

The most important thing we can do is to embrace the truth.
