“The truth of the matter is....” “To tell you the truth....” “Truthfully speaking....” “Just to be truthful....” I'm sure you hear one of these phrases or something similar from time to time. But the truth is, do we really know what truth is?

How would you define truth?
One definition found in Webster's New World Dictionary says that “Truth is conforming to fact”. Great! Now all we have to know is the meaning of “Fact” and we will know what truth is.

I had one college professor who told us that a fact is simply a theory that has never been disproven.
I guess that is why 2+2=4 is a fact. Because it has never been disproven. The law of gravity is a fact because it has never been disproven. It is a fact that two cars can't occupy the same space at the same time, because it has never been disproved. If it is ever disproved, our car insurance will go down.

Because of the reliability of these laws that govern our universe, we can establish truth as something that can be defined, observed, and and applied to the physical, and scientific world around us. As a “matter of fact”, we have no control over truth in the scientific disciplines.

Truth is truth whether we like it or not. You will never fall up a mountain, and I will never walk home from an airplane in flight. God established the truth of these laws and if we want to have a good, safe, and long life, we will have to abide by them.

If we brake them, they will break us...And that is the truth because it has never been disproved!

If we have to live by a set of physical laws based on truth in our physical world, shouldn't we have to live by a set of spiritual laws based on truth in our spiritual world?   If we want to be happy we will!

There is a set of truths taken from a book of spiritual laws that we must observe it we expect to have the inner peace, happiness, and hope that God intended for us to have.

Yes, that book of truth is the Bible. And the laws of truth are called the Ten Commandments, You can find them recorded in the Bible, in the 20th chapter of the book of Exodus.

The Bible is a book of truth because it is the inspired word of God and has never been disproven. It passes the “Fact Test” and will stand as the standard of truth as long as mankind exists.

And just as in the physical world, if we break them, they will break us...And that is the truth because it has never been disproved!

In John 14:6
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

And again in John 8:32 we read;
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Torah inside of the former Glockengasse synago... 

If you are bound by anything that is destroying your life today, why not trust in the Truth of the Bible and experience the joy of total freedom in Christ Jesus who is all truth.
