Jesus told him, “I am the truth.” – John 14:6
Truth is tied into the very person of Jesus Christ, and here Jesus agrees with the Postmodernist: truth is rooted in a person. Understanding necessarily changes from one viewpoint to another, depending on the experience, knowledge and complexities of the individual. One perception of truth is different than another’s.
The Postmodernist fails to consider the impact of omniscience, infinity and all eternity on truth. Such Omniscient Truth would encompass and overwhelm any and all finite views taken together.
Here is what it looks like:
“Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.” – Psalms 25:5
First, it is “Your truth,” David concedes, acknowledging his personal poverty of truth. He called its owner, “the God of my salvation” who saves us from Impoverished Truth.
Second, it comes from interaction: “Lead me…teach me,” David says. As prophet with privilege, he was lead by theopneustos words (literally, “God- breathed,” in 2 Tim. 3:16) which fill the Psalms with supernatural Omniscient Truth. David was astonished by theopneustos, and craved more: “For you I wait all the day.”
Jesus said that David’s privileged experience would soon be available to all:
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.” – John 16:13
Although available, Omniscient Truth is perceived only by:
- Conceding who owns Omniscient Truth;
- Seeking salvation from Impoverished Truth,
- Following His guidance and leadership.
- Little Kings
- Secular Truth
