What is truth? That is an old question. Christians believe God is Truth, that our Creator defines reality. Truth is His personal creation.
How does humanity know the truth? To learn the actual truth, we must know God. But what if we sin?
Mankind has always been tempted to be God, not to know God. This was the sin of Adam and Eve, and we still suffer the same temptation. We use fancier words to rationalize our stupidity. Thus, we speak of our “personal truth” (try googling that expression), and we teach our children that one person’s truth is as good as another person’s truth (https://citizentom.com/2014/12/28/is-multiculturalism-a-religion/). Why? Don’t we want our little dears to be “tolerant” of other people’s personal truths?
What is the problem with a personal truth? The truth is what it is, what God defines it to be. When we create our own personal truth, we create an illusion. Then we stumble about because we have blinded ourselves to the actual truth.
John 9:25 New King James Version (NKJV)
25 He answered and said, “Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.”
Men of ill judgment ignore the good that lies within their hands,
till they have lost it.

Troubling, yet most interesting.
There’s been a great deal in the way of political current events…
all with an odd underlying theme…
a theme of anger with a heavy dose of ignoring the facts…
or perhaps it’s more of a matter of anger with strong denial…
As in… if I deny it, it isn’t real.

attempting to deliver the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Democratic presidential
candidate Tulsi Gabbard, according to Gabbard’s attorney.
Gabbard sued the former secretary of state for $50 million last week for calling
her a “Russian asset.” Clinton has refused to retract the statement.
