Truth is a Gift

“I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)

Truth is a Person who upholds all truthful propositions, ensuring that they correspond to reality. How? By holding all reality together. (Colossians 1:17) Coherence, then correspondence, and therefore truth.

In a sense, truth is subjective. But, experience-wise, there is enough commonality to suggest that truth is not merely subjective. Truth is objective, and therefore it is a very practical thing and eminently livable. Truth finds corroboration in all of reality. Corroboration is abundant and builds confidence. But after all is said and done, Truth is self-authenticating in the same way that light simply shines, provided our eyes are healthy. (Matthew 6:22-23) When Truth speaks in power, there can be no doubt. We grasp Truth, because it first grasped us. (Matthew 16:17)
