happen and what did it do? It brought Job closer to God. He never questioned God’s existence, but we do. If you read the Bible cover to cover even if it is just to read it like a book, it tells us that when the final days come, we are all standing trial. Even if we were never presented the word of God, just seeing the beauty around us proves that God exists. Just like it talks about in Romans 1:19-20. God also talks to us when we read the Bible. He tells us of his Power, Glory, and His Existence.
Word Count: 365 At his trial before Pilate, Jesus answered him saying, “For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world – to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice” (John 18:37 ESV). How would you answer Pilate’s next question, “What is truth?” In your response, address your position on absolute and relative truth referencing Chapter 7 in the textbook or the lecture. (300-500 words) First, I would explain to Pilate what the word truth meant the definition. The definition of truth is the quality or state of being true, that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality, a fact or belief that is accepted as true. Since the word true is used a lot, I would explain what true meant. The word true means: in accordance with fact or reality, rightly or strictly so called; genuine, real or actual, said when conceding a point in argument or discussion, accurate or exact, loyal or faithful, honest. Absolute Truth as I understand out textbook is the removing of the possibility of anything of substance beneath or beyond individual interpretation. In the lecture it talks about relative truth as what is true for me is not true for you. How are these things even possible? The truth is just that the truth. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth, and the light, No one come to the father except through me. How can this statement from Jesus be True for me but not for somebody else? If Jesus said this was true, then this is true for EVERYBODY. It’s not just true for me and then nobody else. Some people may say that Jesus is only there for his people. To a point they are right. But Jesus came down to earth to die for all of our sins. Not just mine, but everybody. Did Jesus lie about this?
