Abstract Of Christian Philosophy | Truth & Holiness


Plenteous Redemption Podcast 

Pilate, a learned man in his day, stood before Truth incarnate and asked: “What is truth?” A
Christian hunger for truth should be satiated daily by a steady diet thereof. Our pursuit of truth
places us in endless intimate acquaintance that cannot be valued. Jesus said he is the truth. He
also said his Father’s word is truth. Thus our proximity to truth is directly proportional to our
relationship with Christ and his word. All matters then should be accepted or rejected based
upon their compliant relationship with God’s word. We should be ready and willing to follow the
truth wherever it takes us and thereby reject error at every turn. Our willingness to follow truth
must then be coupled with a willingness to obey that truth.

A deep desire for truth must be more than the gratification of our curiosity. Gratification can be
meted out in truth or error. Simply seeking personal contentment is distracting rather than
edifying. Truth and falsehood are antithetical, but that fact is not always so clearly realized in the
moment. Just as wheat grows alongside the tares, so do truth and falsehood grow together. The
very nature of the existence of truth requires there also to be error. One way must be right,
thereby requiring another way to be erroneous. Thus our gratification may easily be fulfilled by
some admixture of truth and falsehood. The reality we must face is that truth may not provide
any gratification at all; indeed it may be an hard saying difficult to receive. We must condition
our hearts and minds to accept truth and reject error, even when the realization thereof is
