It would be funny if it were not sad to see so many people today deny the existence of truth. They’ll either say truth is relative, meaning it can vary from person to person. Or they’ll shrug as if truth is an antiquated concept, completely out of place in modern times. Yet truth is something they are bumping into all day long, only they call it by another name: reality. It’s like watching someone say they don’t believe in walls while they are covered in bruises from continually bumping into these walls.
Truth is reality. Truth is the way things are. I’ve heard atheistic evolutionists completely dismiss the idea that God exists or that He created and controls the universe, and in the same speech say that they prefer to put their faith in the laws of physics. Who do they think created and enforces these laws? They embrace edicts of the king but eschew the opportunity to be friends with Him. Another way to say it is that they embrace His lower laws and ignore His higher ones. Yet another way to say it is that they’re willing to avoid bumping into some walls, but not all of them.
Jesus Christ puts a face on truth. He is the one who decided what the laws of physics would be and makes sure that no one repeals them. He does this out of love, for only in this way can we have a rational and ordered universe in which to live. How frightful life would be – just to take one example – if we never knew if, where, or when we were going to see the sun next!
A person can deny the existence of truth until he is blue in the face, but truth is reality and he is encountering that every moment of his life. Even if blindly.
