Absolute truth is a truth that has no alternative truth to it. It is the truth and not an opinion or fact. A fact can change with new evidence but the absolute truth is without error. God is absolute truth and His Son Jesus is as well (John 14:6), and therefore there is no higher truth than this. God is the beginning and the end of all things. What He says is the only truth and, in addition, the Ten Commandments are the truth.
Why then do we still challenge these truths and even remove them from tablets of stone? This is because absolute truth is not comfortable to man who was born in sin. Sin keeps us from knowing the truth and being set free. Consequently, it blinds us to the spiritual reality that God is our Creator.
Opinions of Man
When truth is rejected then lies will abound. The devil, the god of this world, is the father of lies. His main job is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). He mainly does this by sowing lies into our minds. A lot of what we believe is based on false evidence appearing as real. This is what we are sucked into through the media. The devil uses lies to make us fit in with a particular agenda of a political party or movement. We are all caught up with the opinions of man because we have rejected God and the absolute truth. It seems we would rather believe the lies than the truth. We think so-called facts are truth but they are not because some of them are based on lies. We are easily persuaded to accept the lies because we live on lies.
We lie to each other and justify it by not wanting to hurt the other with the truth. When we build our lives on lies it is like building a house on sand. When a crisis occurs the building collapses. The high rate of suicide is a sign of this in society. Why is truth so uncomfortable to hear? We hate the truth because we are spiritually blind and deaf. We are afraid to see and our blindness keeps us from the truth. The only way out of this dilemma is to repent and turn to Jesus who is the absolute truth. There is no fear in love. We can face anything when we have faced the truth. We can only do it when we have come face to face with absolute truth.
