What the Bible Says About Truth

What is truth? Do you have your own truth and I have “my” truth? Although we think this is the way the world is today, this “my truth” vs “your truth” was something Pilate referred to when judging Jesus. In John 18:38 Pilate said, “What is truth?”

As Christ-followers, there is no question as to what is truth. We follow the Word of God and what He says is truth is THE truth. Here are multiple verses about the truth and the truthfulness of God.

The Truthfulness of God

As Christians, we believe that God is truthful in everything He says. His Word is a trustworthy source of guidance for our lives. 

Living by God’s truth is not always easy, as our sinful nature can lead us astray. However, when we surrender our lives to Christ, He gives us the strength to live according to His truth. 

Following Jesus is always worth it. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). When we follow Him, we experience the abundant life that He came to give us (John 10:10). We also have the hope of eternal life with Him (John 3:16).
