Truth And Freedom

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32).

Over the past couple of generations, we have seen our culture attempt to abolish or redefine truth. Individual opinions have been venerated, and gradually elevated above absolute truth. When one person's "truth" contradicts another, the conflict remains uncontested because of the politically correct doctrine of non-absolutes. This vague ideology has become the breeding ground for man's relentless pursuit of moral relativism, giving him free reign to ignore the very core of truth's meaning.

Unfortunately, this subjective, humanistic view of truth has also ushered in confusion about the concept of freedom. The popular claim is that we are all "free" to embrace our own personalized versions of reality. Ultimately though, this false freedom leads to bondage, when sinner's "freedoms" conflict with each other in a world where every man does "that which [is] right in his own eyes" (Judges 21:25).

Our Lord Jesus described Himself as "the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6). He personified the very essence of truth as the Living Word manifested in the flesh. His perfect life of sinless integrity as both the Son of man and Son of God qualified Him to be the only true Messiah who could die for the sins of the world and become the "propitiation for our sins" (I John 4:10). Therefore we should proclaim the truth that only Jesus can make us "free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:2).

Though our lost and fallen world may challenge the meaning of truth, we ought to always "walk in truth" (III John 1:4) More than ever we must "Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth" (Ephesians 6:14), knowing that the real "truth is in Jesus" (Ephesians 4:21) and it is only Christ who has truly "made us free"! (Galatians 5:1). MDR
