Breath Day – March 24, 2018

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

“What is truth?” retorted Pilate.

John 18:37-38a

Living in this age of moral relativism, society trains us to believe there is no absolute truth, no black and white, and no one is either right or wrong. Political correctness, forced tolerance, and denial escort the elephant to the middle of the room. The same person who believes the Holocaust was pure evil will, at the same time, support the pro-choice cause, and those who profess Christian roots spew hateful epithets at homosexuals and celebrate harm done to them.

Standing for God’s absolute truth can bring condemnation and ridicule. It would be much easier to take Pilate’s self-serving route and go with the crowd, but as Pastor Rick Warren said, “A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good just because it’s accepted by a majority.”

So … what is truth?
