Ever Learning part 2

Ever Learning II by David Heisler

But, what is the “truth”? Well many things in life are true, or, at least appear to be. There are certain true rules of nature. We know gravity is true, but, we also know it is relative. There is no gravity in Space. There is less gravity on the Moon but there would be more gravity on a planet bigger than Earth. Math is true no matter where in the Universe you are, right? One plus one will always equal two, right? Well, maybe not, when considering the follow two verses:

“And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh.” [Matt. 19.15]

“I and my Father are one.” [John 10.30]

So, here we have two examples of math not working – i.e. one plus one equaling one. So what we are left with regarding Paul’s statement to Timothy, “the knowledge of the truth.” [2 Tim. 3.7] Is all truth therefore relative? To some it appears that way. Speaking metaphorically, if you have no anchor your boat is always floating and therefore all truth appears relative, as, in the words of Pilate:

“… what is truth …” [John 18.38]
