I don’t normally make it a habit to quote Pontius Pilate, but his cynical quote really fits this topic. “What is truth?” is a question that every Christian should ask himself, as its pursuit should be our main mission in life. In the dictionary, truth is defined as “conformity with fact or reality”. When it comes to faith, the Modern Catholic Dictionary (Fr. John Hardon, 1999, Eternal Life Press), defines revealed truth as “disclosure by God of Himself and His Will to the human race”. While that answers the question of “what is truth?”, it still doesn’t tell how to discover the truth.
I recently wrote an article for Catholic Lane entitled, “A Biblical Roadmap To The One, True Church“, in which I presented 10 Scripture passages which take us from Point “A” (There is ONE absolute truth) to Point “B” (the Catholic Church contains the fullness of that truth). Over the next several days, I’ll be discussing each of these passages in detail.
If you’re Catholic, you should be familiar with these passages as they provide a strong validation for our beliefs. If you’re not Catholic, I recommend that you use them as a standard by which to measure your own church. As I state in the article, it is my belief that only the Catholic Church fits all of these Biblical requirements.
I hope you’ll join me as we search for the truth in order that we can echo the words of David, “Teach me, LORD, your way that I may walk in your truth (Ps 86:11)!
Tomorrow: 1 Timothy 2:3-4
