THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH (6)
This series of articles has examined false ideas about the nature of truth common is the religious world and far too common in the church. Put simply and logically:
1. If no human being can know everything,
then no human being can know anything.
2. No human being can know everything.
3. Therefore, no human being can know any
thing at all.
This is false. There are many things which I do not know. But there are at least a few things which I do know. I know, for instance, that I at this moment am sitting at a computer and typing. I know that am doing this for the Church of Christ in Hico. There are many other things which I know. I also know a number of things about the Bible. I know, for instance,
• That the Bible teaches “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;” (Mk 16:16)
• that Peter said to Jesus, “Thou are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” (Mt 16:16)
• That Peter claimed that God had raised Jesus from the dead. (Ac 2:22–24, 32)
I know many other things which the Bible also teaches. It is true that I do not know everything, and it is true that I do not know everything which the Bible teaches. The Bible is a “well” of information the depths of which no man will ever fully plumb. But it does not follow that I do not know anything at all about what the Bible teaches.
If someone should deny this, then contemplate that the denial is self-contradictory. In denying that one can know truth the denier himself would be claiming to know at least one thing. Namely, that I do not know anything. If the denier knows this one bit of information, then his own theory is false (that men cannot know anything at all).
If we cannot learn the truth, then the Bible is not a meaningful revelation from God to man. Why even study the Bible, if it is not God’s truth or if truth is not knowable? But, thanks be to God, the foregoing is false. And God’s people are to study the truth.
The does not mean that any and every interpretation of the Bible will be acceptable to God. The Bible teaches just what it teaches without regard to what I or anyone else thinks about it. Truth is objective and absolute, not subjective and relative. And we can and must know and obey its truth (John 8:32; 2 Thess 1:6–9).
