Pilate’s Question; What is Truth?

Christ before Pilate, Mihály Munkácsy, 1881

Pilate the governor of Judea was looking at Truth personified  when he looked at Jesus of Nazareth and asked the question What is truth?

Pilate did not recognize truth. He is like the rest of his fellow humans that do not, cannot, will not see truth for what it is.  When it does not comply with their thoughts and feelings it cannot be truth. Jesus said that he himself was the TRUTH.

Many people see themselves as truth not anything else. What is truth? Truth is what GOD SAID. It is that simple. But how do we know what God said? The Torah is the law of God.

God isn’t ever going to say that green is red. But if he did, than green would be red. It is what  GOD SAID that determines everything to be what it is.

Could one conclude just by speculation, or even deep thought that any feeling, or experience is real or good? Or is it evil or is it a delusion? Perhaps it is a hallucination? What? How do we determine what is from God when there is so much delusion in the world?

Firstly, Satan is the master of delusion and deception. He is the being of iniquity and darkness, the wicked evil savage of hate and murder.  He walks  in lies. He operates in delusion, in deceit and incredible dark light.  As Jesus said there can be light that is darkness.

If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:23)

When two masters are served (good and evil both) the evil master will prevail because the good Master Jesus will not compromise with  evil. Your light will be turned into darkness. How great is that darkness?  So great you think it is light. That is dark!

This is deception; this is what the enemy does as he works his evil in the hearts of those who refuse to simply believe God. When Jesus said to believe him he didn’t mean you need a degree in theology. He didn’t mean you need to pray until there are lumps on your knees. He didn’t say you have to graduate at the top of your class.  Just go with what he said.

He did not come to threaten or judge he came to reveal laws that are in place. Universal laws his Father set into motion. That if you transgress those laws you will perish. Why? Because they are immutable laws.

Laws such as the law of gravity, the laws of thermodynamics, the laws of marriage, and of faith, of sin, or love….laws laws laws…all set into motion by the great Creator.

Satan is the master magician who can actually present in full color before you an illusion by presenting to you evil disguised as goodness.  He comes as an angel of light to deceive those who refuse the light. Jesus said men loved darkness rather than light, that they would not come to the light lest their deeds be reproved.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (John 3:19)

Condemnation is not anything to play around with.

But fear of shame and reproach keeps many a sinner from the altar of repentance. When that is why the altar is there; to receive the sinner.

Murderers and adulterers and homosexuals all feel what they are doing.

Karla Faye Tucker the woman who axed two people to death in Texas and died by lethal injection for it, said she had orgasms while she slashed her victims to death with an axe. She felt what she was doing as pleasure though what she was doing was evil. Satan the master deceiver was at work to destroy her and her victims.

This is undeniable evidence that evil brings pleasure even as the Bible says. The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season.

“…..to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; (Hebrews 11:25)

Homosexuals say it feels right so they think their perversion is right.  They say they need to get “married” because of their rights and feelings.

On and on the claims go. Ted Bundy was driven to kill; he could not stop himself so he stalked and killed with nary a tear of remorse. He lived by his feelings. Homes torn to pieces by adulterers and fornicators all because they live by their feelings instead of by laws. Feelings feelings and more feelings. The world is almost destroyed because of humans being guided by their feelings instead of by what GOD SAID.

The man who had sex with a stallion in Washington state than died after the stallion perforated the man’s inner organs.  He bled to death. Why? Because the man lived by his feelings. He thought to have sex with a horse and paid for it with his life.

If he had obeyed God’s law that said not to lie with beasts he would not have died that way. Yet God gets the blame for so much from so many.

Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it [is] confusion. (Leviticus 18:23)

Consider….

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  (Genesis 1:1)

Than what happened? Nothing happened. The Bible says next that the spirit of God moved upon the face of the deep.  (Genesis 1:1) What happened then? Nothing happened. Simply because nothing just happens there has to be a reason a cause for it. What a horrible world this would be if things just happened for no reason or cause. Scary.

Like a family going on a picnic on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. They know it might rain if that weatherman got it wrong. They know they will see different strangers at the park. They know what might take place, but they know this ; They know that no beast will suddenly arise from the ground and eat them up. This is delusion it is imagination something the Bible says not to do.

There are laws and there is delusion. People who took LSD hallucinated and saw colors and other weird  stuff. It was all delusion one of Satan’s most useful tools.

I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love. (Psalm 119:113)

Then it says in Genesis something that brought light.

And God said Let there be light and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

Those words……GOD SAID. And there it is the reason for it all the reason for good and the reason for evil…the cause of both in the universe it is all because GOD SAID. If anything agrees with what GOD SAID all will be well with that one. If one resists what GOD SAID than he will die.

LAWS. Everything that proceeds from the mouth of God is LAW. Not idle chatter, not suggestions awaiting our approval. Not maybes, or could be. Not conjectures or guesses.

If we only understand it is what GOD SAID that determines what is right what is wrong.

This is why we have the Torah it tells us  GOD SAID what is right and what is wrong.
Nothing else exists that contains its enduring truths.

Many will argue that there were before the Torah laws and rules.  I think not. That the Old Testament is not original but way before it there were laws teaching right from wrong. That is also the extent of their opposition to merely say the Torah is not original. Let them try then to prove it with documented evidence.

Don’t bring the Babylonian Code that is not sufficient to guide the world as history has proved. Don’t bring Buddha who came along 700 years before Jesus was born.

The Torah is what GOD SAID. It will remain what GOD SAID forever.

What GOD SAID is TRUTH. His laws are TRUTH.

And Jesus was the personification of those laws; what GOD SAID

Next..why obeying the Ten Commandments is right and will bring peace order and happiness.

    “truth, my friend,” as Nero once said, “is a pickle up one’s arse.” Don’t knock it!
