For many of us we seem to be asking, where is truth? People have always been in search of this, whether in religion, self or political systems. Even Pilate was asking this of Christ when he asked, “What is truth?” and he never waited to receive the answer. (John 18:38) At the end of the day, everything we seek, search, and live for is to know truth. It’s instilled within all of us. Our justice, science and medical systems are founded and based upon getting to the truth of the matter or diagnosis. We ask this of relationships as well. We look for a trust and truthfulness in everything.
Christ was so bold in stating “I am the way and the truth.” (Jn. 14:6) And for this reason he came to testify of the truth. If we can possibly look at this with open eyes as we do with most questions we wrestle with and try to resolve, we just may find this to be a very reasonable process. Christ also asked of us to “ Come now, let us reason together,” (Isa.1:18) This is asking for a discussion and a search of what He's saying to be truthful. He's asking us to be true to ourselves and drop our inborn defenses against Him.
