To those whom allude, "There is No Truth" - you've already self-imploded because by the mere fact you state this, you've invented a "truth".
It's like those whom state, "I hate myself".....However, If you hated yourself then you would be happy when bad things happen to you and no one is happy about that!
We all let emotions/feelings dictate our truth as we see it in our humanity, and are as a boat tossed to and fro with every wind of belief, not sure of what indeed is truly fact, if we're truly honest with ourselves. For those "truths" we hold dear, are they truths that we perceived in ourselves? What dictated those thoughts that became doctrine to us? Was it not our humanity with all it's shortcomings and erroneous judgments/perceptions of life? Your spouse/significant other knows you're not perfect, so realize this yourself if you haven't come to grips with it , and acknowledge YOU in and of yourself may not have YOUR truth correct :) Humble yourselves….Pilate asked Jesus, "What is truth?" Truth can only be defined by an entity greater than ourselves for we are but mere humans, for we are all faulted and are therefore incapable of defining "truth". Therefore we must seek a source outside of our human inconsistencies, if there is indeed one out there. Jesus boldly stated, "I AM the way, the TRUTH, and the life"…. No one has ever made that statement of being THE TRUTH. Many have said they possess truths, but no one claimed to be the embodiment of TRUTH, except Jesus….
He had to be either insane, a liar, or what He claimed to be, "THE TRUTH".
You decide, but remember, His followers all went to their death for saying what He said was true. IF He was insane would all of them have gone to their deaths as a martyr for a madman's beliefs? If He was a liar, wouldn't they have known him to be that, since they lived with him? It would've been exposed to them eventually. The ultimate lie being that He foretold his disciples He would rise from the dead. If He didn't prove this to them, wouldn't He be a liar in their eyes? Yet they each died a martyrs death because they wouldn't denounce their faith in Jesus; this Jesus, whom said, He was indeed THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life, and they put faith in Him. The followers were shown He rose because Jesus presented Himself to them and they believed. Their deaths came after they witnessed Him as a risen, Savior. "I believe in Christianity, as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else" -- C.S. Lewis
