What is Truth? Philosophers have attempted to answer the question, “What is truth?” for thousands of years. Truth is a concept in philosophy that treats both the meaning of the word “true” and the criteria by which we judge the truth or falsity in spoken and written statements.

In the late 19th-century American philosopher Charles S. Pierce offered another answer to the question “What is truth?” He asserted that truth is that which experts will agree upon when their investigations are final.

Jesus Christ came to reveal the Truth to us. He also declared to His disciples,
“I am the way and the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6, NIV)

Truth brings freedom from sin. The truth can set us free from the prison of sin or evil and give us real purpose for living.

Jesus said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32, NIV) He came to set us free from the bondage of sin, and give us the ability to walk in the path of God's truth; no matter what life situations we may face.

Freedom is not always free.  It costs something. Jesus died, paying the ultimate price, so that we could have a chance for life.  He said,
“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10, NIV)

Jesus death for us on the Cross made it possible for us to be restored to righteousness, that we could be right with God and live according to His perfect plan.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in  Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NIV)

Thank God, Jesus did not only set us free from sin, but  He also gives us a full, lasting purpose in life, to participate in the kingdom of God for eternity.

Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote these inspiring words,

    There’s a line that’s drawn through the ages
    And on that line stands an old rugged cross.
    On that cross, the battle is raging
    For the gain of man’s soul or his loss.

    On one side, march the forces of evil.
    All the demons and the devils of hell.
    On the other, the angels of glory
    And they meet on Golgotha’s Hill.

    The earth shakes with the force of the conflict
    And the sun refuses to shine.
    For there hangs God’s Son in the balance
    And then through the darkness He cries.

    “It is Finished!” The battle is over!
    “It is Finished!” There will be no more wars.
    “It is finished!” The end of the conflict
    “It is finished!” And Jesus is Lord.

    Yet in my heart the battle was raging.
    Not all prisoners of war had come home.
    There were battle fields of my own making.
    I didn’t know that the war had been won.

    Then I heard that the King of the Ages
    Had fought all the battles for me.
    And that victory was mine for the claiming.
    And now, Praise His name, I am free!

    “It is Finished!” The battle is over!
    “It is Finished!” There will be no more wars.
    “It is finished!” The end of the conflict
    “It is finished!” And Jesus is Lord.
