How Do I Know Who is Telling the Truth? Part 1
Including the word truth in the title of my website (Truth in Love) reminded me I would be setting a standard based on my belief in the Bible. This means I am eliminating standards contradicting the Bible as those set by scientific theory, philosophical and religious beliefs, and random personal convictions. I anticipate the immediate response would be that truth is a subjective opinion.
Before I become a participant in the revolving door defender of truth, I’ll mention some basic elements concerning truth. The idea of truth is generally judged by the following standards: abstract, logical, moral, and religious.
The human body is one of the most fundamental, indisputable truths. If you have ever been to a chiropractor and you looked around the office, you probably saw a skeletal picture of the human body. You will never find the human skeleton exhibited any differently from one office to the next. Even when birth injuries cause damage to certain parts of the body or the nerves, the internal outline of the body remains.
Chiropractic care is based on the fundamental truth of the human body structure; health can be maintained by turning on your internal healing properties. Unlike traditional medicine that treats disease, the goal of chiropractic is to restore the body’s natural, innate, healthful state. Thirty-one pairs of nerves emit signals from the spine. Damage to any one of these has the potential to cause “dis-ease.”
As unchangeable as the structure of the human body, Biblical truth is based upon the unchanging nature of God who is love. This love is active and provides for the physical, mental, spiritual, and moral needs of the object of His affection—mankind.
Our brokenness, bad decisions, negative thoughts, immoral behavior, clogging of our minds with drugs and alcohol, unhealthy relationships, and unforgiveness are sources of damage to our physical, spiritual, and emotional health. God’s Truth, (used interchangeably with His Love) heals, redeems, forgives, guides, and protects the inner person and leads to outward healing. It promotes healing and well-being within the inner man (woman) to anyone willing to accept this love by faith through His Son. (John 3:16)
The undeniable truth within the Bible sets its standard based on the personality and nature of God, and it is housed in light. Any choice based upon acceptance of Bible truth means you are willing to accept the activities of God in His consistent relationship to mankind.
Your decision to believe the Bible means you know your existence is an expression of His Divine creation. Therefore, true freedom is knowing who you are created to be, and your purpose in life rests in Him as Creator of the universe with His guarantee of eternal love and undeserved blessings.
Bible truth is not religion. It is God’s gift to preserve the soul and spirit of mankind. Like any gift, it must be received by the person to whom it is offered. Don’t let your gift go to waste! (I John 4:4-6)
The human body is one of the most fundamental, indisputable truths.
