1. According to the Bible, who is the Author of truth?
The right answer is GOD.
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews. John 18:37,38
In John chapter 18, the Lord Jesus is standing before Pilate, accused of being a King. Jesus tells Pilate that He IS a King, but not of this world, and that His design is not to set up a physical kingdom, but to declare the ______. Pilate responds, “What is _______?” But notice what Pilate does next. He does not wait around for the answer. He does not believe there is any such thing as “truth.”
It is the same with most people. They have been lied to so many times about Santa, the tooth fairy, and Easter bunnies they think that God and truth are only lies as well.
Yet, in John 17:17, Jesus Himself says God’s ___________ is truth! Now, either Jesus was a liar, or crazy, or telling the truth. Which is it?
Jesus said, when praying to His Father in heaven, "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." John 17:17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:15
