Who determines what “Truth” is?

Scholars have debated the issue for centuries, but the search continues for a simple answer to this simple question. It seems that human logic and reason do not always produce a satisfactory answer to that haunting question from ages past; “What is truth?”

Doesn’t it seem logical for man to trust the omniscient (all knowing) God with the process of defining what truth is for mankind? “For as the heavens are above the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
The Son of God was very clear in His prayer to the Father: “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your Word is truth”. (John 17:17)

As one considers what is true and what is not true concerning spiritual matters, it is always wise to search and to accept God’s Word as the final authority for determining what spiritual truth is. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

The New Testament warns repeatedly that many false teachers are in the world and have brought in “destructive heresies” and many are following their destructive ways. (2 Peter 2:1-3) We should always rely upon the written Word of God as the one source which equips us with the ability to examine and to determine what is true and what is not true in all spiritual matters. After all, It will be His Word that will judge each and every one of us on that last day.

“He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him; the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.” (John 12:48)
