What Is Truth?

John 18:38  Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”

John 8:31,32  Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Answers in Genesis offers a brief statement of faith in addition to detailed studies of the Bible, God, and the Person of Christ.

Professor William Lane Craig offers an in-depth study of theology.

Focus on the Family offers Christian counseling for marriage, parenting, faith, abuse and addiction, emotional health, life transitions, love and sex, managing money, and relationship challenges.

I am a young-earth creationist because that is what God’s word clearly teaches, but I recognize the value of arguments presented by my brothers and sisters in Christ who do not share the Biblical view. They are fantastic for what I call the “even if” part of an evangelistic conversation. We can use the arguments of Christians who accept the Big Bang and Evolution with Intelligent Design, to point out that even given the Big Bang and Evolution, Christianity is the most plausible position.

The following are particular points of theology that should be noted:

Got Questions? answers, “Do Christians have to keep asking for forgiveness for their sins?”

Dr. John Piper explains why Adam’s sin is imputed to us.

Got Questions? answers, “If Jesus was God, why did He say ‘No one is good but God alone’?”

Got Questions? answers, “What is praying in tongues?”

Got Questions? answers, “Do Christians have to observe the Sabbath day?”

Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen explains how evil and suffering can be allowed by our loving God.

Professor William Lane Craig explains what happens to those who never hear about Jesus.
