What is truth and where do you find it?

This morning I read a post about "What is truth?"

Today, more than ever before, I am seeing the truth of this. The postmodern generation is picking and choosing what truth they wish to believe.

Never before have I seen the need for people, especially the younger generation, to find out what is truth and where to find it. During the election, there seemed to be so many that took the candidates at their word and never did any research on any thing they said. It was very easy for me to find out information and it would have been for all who really wanted to know the truth.

In today's world, it seems it's perfectly fine to follow in the footsteps of those that say they have the 'truth', and never follow up to see if they are actually telling the truth. They get you in their clutches, and then you find out what they are really about.

As Christians, we know that the Lord said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life". And, he also said, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Why aren't our young people as well as some adults not wanting to know the truth? Why do we follow after people that we know aren't truthful and do not have our well-being at the forefront of their endeavors?

As Diane said at Crossroads, we need to talk to the younger generation about the truth, God's truth. They need to find out from more experienced people how easily it is to follow 'our truth' and lose our way. So much hurt could be avoided if they could understand that God is the only one with the real truth. Only He can keep them from a life of misery simply because they chose to follow their own way.
