6-26-2022 “WHAT IS TRUTH?” part2 John 18:37-38

This week Bro. Leo continues us in our study of TRUTH.

Last week we learned that the Bible is very specific that the truth of God and Gods’ truth is the only absolute truth (Gen.1:1-5, 26-27, 31, Gen.2:1, Exo.19:16-20, Exo.20:1-3, 12-17, Duet.6:4-5, Isa.45:5-8, Isa.42:8, John 1:1-3, 14, 18, Acts 4:10, 12). God is the sole source of absolute truth and His truth never changes, is never relative, arbitrary or fluid. Contrary to Gods’ absolute truth, mans’ truth is arbitrary, relative and fluid (Jer.17:9-10, Rom.3:4). We have the free will to choose to believe Gods’ absolute truth or reject it (John 8:43-45). Gods’ absolute truth is and has been being attacked in our Nation by all those wanting to usher in the New World Order, knowing the only way to do that is by destroying the Nation from the inside via the education and political systems removing Gods’ truth by replacing it with lies from Satan (Rom.1:18, 28, 32, 19-20, Rom.2:14-15, 20, 25, 1Tim.4:1-2, Rom.1:21, 25, 2Tim.3:7). This all being done in order to strip us of our freedoms and liberty’s enslaving us to the NWO (John 8:31-32, 36).

This week we learn that the word “truth” in John 18:37 is translated from the Greek word “alētheia” which Spiros Zodhiates defines as reality, absolute certainty and fact. Pure unadulterated reality that’s source is God.

Gods’ Word establishes a hierarchy with God above all else which allows for a set of parameters for us to live by (2Pet.1:20-21, 2Tim.3:16-17). What we are seeing in this country now is nothing less than deception and half truth’s (2Tim.3:13).

I’m not going to go into details here, but Bro. Leo describes the deception we all seen this week following the SCOTUS ruling on Roe v. Wade (John 8:42-44).

There is only one truth, by definition it is impossible to have a “my truth” and “your truth” (1John 1:6-8), truth is not whatever you want to make it be.

(Bro. Leo did not include this in the study) I like to compare definitions of words between the Webster’s Dictionary 1828 and the latest Webster’s version, this is the 1828 definition of “truth”:
TRUTHnoun

1. Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

My mouth shall speak truth Proverbs 8:7.

Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth John 17:17.

2. True state of facts or things. The duty of a court of justice is to discover the truth Witnesses are sworn to declare the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth

3. Conformity of words to thoughts, which is called moral truth

Shall truth fail to keep her word?

4. Veracity; purity from falsehood; practice of speaking truth; habitual disposition to speak truth; as when we say, a man is a man of truth

5. Correct opinion.

6. Fidelity; constancy.

The thoughts of past pleasure and truth

7. Honesty; virtue.

That malice bears down truth

8. Exactness; conformity to rule.

Plows, to go true, depend much on the truth of the iron work. [Not in use.]

9. Real fact of just principle; real state of things. There are innumerable truths with which we are not acquainted.

10. Sincerity.

God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship in spirit and in truth John 4:23.

11. The truth of God, is his veracity and faithfulness. Psalms 71:22.

Or his revealed will.

I have walked in thy truth Psalms 26:3.

12. Jesus Christ is called the truth John 14.

13. It is sometimes used by way of concession.

She said, truth Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crums– Matthew 15:27.

That is, it is a truth; what you have said, I admit to be true.

In truth in reality; in fact.

Of a truth in reality; certainly.

To do truth is to practice what God commands. John 3.

Here’s the current version:
Definition of truth

1a(1)the body of real things, events, and facts ACTUALITY

(2)the state of being the case FACT

(3)often capitalized a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality

ba judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as truetruths of thermodynamics

cthe body of true statements and propositions

2athe property (as of a statement) of being in accord with fact or reality

bchiefly British TRUE sense 2

cfidelity to an original or to a standard

3asincerity in action, character, and utterance

barchaic FIDELITYCONSTANCY

4capitalizedChristian Science GOD

As you can see even Webster has removed God for the most part, moving the definition closer to arbitrary than absolute.
