What Is Truth ?

One cardinal WORD that has featured repeatedly in this forum is the WORD truth. Some post clear falsehood (lie) and present it as truth. Others present truth and it is treated as falsehood or lie. To the feeble mind this brings confusion. So i am asking this question ,WHAT IS TRUTH and how do one differentiate truth from lie or falsehood ?.

Good. Thou shalt get an explanation, it's another thing if you'll be content though.

Hebrews 13v8. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever.

Revelation 1v8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Here is Jesus Christ in revelation showing Himself alive and revealing Himself as consistent. He died and rose again. He is unique. No other being has claimed to die and rise again and be alive forever more. He's so alive and willing to reveal Himself to anyone who desires to know Him more. He's revealed Himself to many around us.

No sir, A liar might be consistent, but the Lie itself can never be consistent. Satan is a liar and may be consistent in his lying, however his lies cannot be consistent. There will be contradictions. Most blatantly they will contradict facts and truth. Lie can never be consistent with truth. even if the lie is consistent with itself.

You must be talking about Yahweh here, no? Because all these things you wrote fit him perfectly. Yahweh and satan, they have to be one and the same entity. And that could be a "consistent" truth.

There is a natural definition. But The definition I gave has to do with The word of God. Yours seem to be a little on the natural side. Remember a lie can also be consistent. Satan is a consistent liar.

John 8:44

He (Satan)was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

We have 2 types of truth,

Relative and absolute Truth

1. Relative Truth - Is the knowledge of things based on popular opinions and facts (scientific findings)

e.g Many years ago, the following was known as truth

- The earth is flat

- There are 9 planets in our solar system.

But as we know better, all of the following are false, But as at then they were truths relative to a particular time and season

2. Absolute Truth - This is the knowledge of things as they were, as they will be and as they will ever be.

MORAL: Don't judge religion or people based on popular opinion.

I don't know about the Jesus myth. Is that some article you've read or what?

The Jesus myth is not consistent, but rather persistent. If Jesus myth were to be consistent, there would have been far less schizms in christiandom.

Jesus Christ is the only thing that is consistent, the firm foundation. He was and is and is to come. He is the SAME yesterday, today and forever. Little wonder then that He said "I am THE truth"John 14v6.

Mr. Agbaje, I almost leapt out of my chair in rapturous applause after reading the first 6 words. That would have been the most agreeable to me thing that I'd ever read you post . . . but then I kept on reading and while I still agreed however I felt the it lost some of it's elegance.

I would say it simply as

Truth is anything that is Consistent.
