The Truth Holds Us
Is it arrogant for Christians to say we hold the truth? For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
It’s common today for people to think each person can and should develop his own truths about religion and ethics. And that we each have the right to hold our personal truths based on what seems to fit us best.
Then along comes a Christian who says that truth is true for everyone. Sounds pretty arrogant, doesn’t it? And it really would be, if Christian truth was one we build ourselves, and if we thought then we could impose that truth on everyone else. That’s what others conditioned to relativism are likely to think unless we can clearly explain that it’s not our truth we claim.
Christians don’t get truths by developing them to fit our whims. Christianity is a revealed religion. In other words, truth comes to us from a reality way bigger than us. They’re given to us by God, who Is Truth, and is the Creator of all things. So, we don’t hold the truth, the truth holds us.
