"These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth."
I Timothy 3:14-15 NKJV
"What is truth?" A baffling question for many. It's the same difficult question posed to Jesus by Pontius Pilate during trial to which Jesus gave no audience. He remained mute not because he didn't know the answer but because He had answered the question already. His silence was shouting "Let those who heard me speak".
But would Pilate accept the truth about the Truth? Will he comprehend the fact that Truth was standing before him in chains, with his enemies crying out "Crucify Him!" Truth is not facts or science, truth is the Person of Jesus. He said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. ( John 14:6).
We are living in the day and age when proponents of science are telling us to "believe" in science and facts. I am not anti-science but if science and is truly science do we need to "believe" it? Science as we know it is the study of the physical and natural world using theoretical models and data from experiments or observation. We don't need faith to use science it's not a religion.
Scientists, as wonderful as they are, are not custodians of Truth, the church is. God has honored the church to be stewards of the mysteries of worlds even beyond this one. We are anointed to make the Truth known all around the world. The Truth sanctifies those who hear it: "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth." (John 17:17).
Here is the Truth: God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not die but have eternal life(life as God has it). (John 3:16). In all these things happening in the world we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. That's the Truth. You want to know the truth? God shows the difference between his people and the world.
The truth is God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life. He who who does not have the Son does not have life. We can go on and on until we write books about the Truth that even the world can not contain. Just receive the person of Jesus who is the embodiment of Truth and you are fully stocked, for of making many books there is no end and much study is wearisome to the flesh(Ecclesiastes 12:12).
I am a custodian of the truth that God has given to me eternal life, and this life is in His Son Jesus. If I have the Son of God I have life.
