Behold, You desire Truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Psalm 51:6
Definition of Truth -
Absolute, Universal and Eternal Truth is something that is true in all situations, beyond space, time, matter and everything else.
Truth can be known but not fully understood because the human mind is finite, and limited and biased by its own perceptions and personal skews. Absolute Truth is a set of facts and reality which can be perceived and known, though not fully comprehended by our human limited senses. Absolute, complete, unvarying and permanent Truth is always valid, regardless of parameters or context.
Old English trīewth, trēowth means 'faithfulness, constancy', thereby unwavering
The only thing that has the a attributes of Truth is God. Truth = God.
Logically: Stating "There exists an absolute truth" seems simply true.
Stating “There does not exist an absolute truth” refutes every response to that very statement. Agreeing with “There is no absolute truth” means that you cannot absolutely agree with that statement truthfully. Disagreeing with “There is no absolute truth” means “There is absolute Truth.” Either way, There exists an absolute truth.
Truth must be factually and logically correct. Truth must not have error, be self-contradictory or deceptive.
Dear Reader, you are welcomed to disagree with any part of this writing. The point is to state that there is Absolute Truth, and it can be known. Yes, it requires more than the five senses to be known. But Truth wants to be known. (Truthful Warning: You can get hung up on searching for Truth without ever meeting It if you choose to keep on looking. You can make excuses that you haven’t spent enough time or effort looking for it. In that case seeking may have become your new god. We suggest that you ask the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal Himself to you concretely, and then when He does, accept Him for Who He is and live for Him by Truth.)
Absolute Truth is not based upon feelings, culture, circumstances, personal preferences, but something Greater and Higher than ourselves. Truth is based what transcends culture and individual inclinations.
To find Truth, we must look beyond ourselves and outside of ourselves. In essence, seeking Truth means we are seeking God. God is Truth, the Absolute and True Author of Reality and of all Truth. If you are desire to know Truth of all realty which is beyond yourself, then you must look to God. (http://carm.org/what-is-truth )
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8
Pilate said to him “What is truth?” John 18:38
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the Truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
How can anyone know Truth?
Because Truth is Absolute, Universal and Eternal, we cannot know or grasp Truth in its entire fullness. However, we can know Truth enough to have it be effective in our lives. For us to know Truth, we must be taught it and shown it by an Entity that can grasp it all fully and make it comprehendible to us. Truth can only be fully disclosed by the Ultimate, Absolute, Universal and Eternal God Who communicates.
A person may say what is true for him or her, but that is not Absolute, Universal and Eternal Truth which is true in all situations, beyond space, time, matter and everything else. (Jesus’ story about building a house)
So how can anyone know Truth? We can know Truth by listening, learning and applying what is taught to us from The God Who is Truth.
Jesus taught the Truth. God’s Truth brings Life. The opposite is true. Lies and deception bring Death. Jesus taught with His Words and Actions.
Jesus told people to do what He said so they would live in Truth. Acting in agreement with Jesus’ Words will set you free from lies and deception, and the death they bring. To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
Truth is knowable because the God of the universe teaches us Truth. We can experience Truth through the Words of Jesus, the Word of God, and by trusting God's Word of Truth by putting His thoughts in to action. Psalm 1, Proverbs 3:5-8, Psalm 119:105, Psalm 19
You desire Truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Psalm 51:6
How can Truth Love?
The very essence of Truth is Justice and Goodness. Therefore the effect of Truth is benefit and life. The opposite of Truth is lies and deception. The very essence of lies is destruction and death.
Because God is Truth, and Jesus says He is the Truth, we can historically learn how God loved us through Jesus Christ. Spiritually we can experience Truth Loving us as God’s Loves us through His Powerful Risen Son Lord Jesus Christ.
For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
Practically speaking, if we choose to ignore the Truth, we will get hurt. If we willfully choose to not tell the Truth, we will hurt others and also hurt ourselves. Bring me to Truth or Lies .
Conversely, it we choose to listen and do what Truth says, we will be blessed. If we willfully chose to tell others the Truth, they may not like us, but if they listen and do what Truth says, then they too will be blessed, and so will we. Deuteronomy 28
For example, Suppose there is rotten food on the plate. If we choose to ignore the truth that there is mold in the food and instead we rationalize, lying to our self, that the mold is just a pretty color and it will not hurt us, and then we eat it, we will get a pain in our stomach and possibly die. Ignoring truth causes pain.
If we lie to someone, telling them that that the rotten food is safe when we know it is poisonous, then when they eat it they will feel pain and possibly die. Their pain will affect us, too. Lies cause pain.
Conversely, if we acknowledge the truth that the food is rotten and poisonous and we choose not to eat the food, then we live for another day. If we tell another person the truth, that the food is rotten and poisonous, they have two choices. They can heed the truth of our words and not eat it and live. Or they can choose to ignore the truthful warning and eat the food with mold and suffer and possibly die. And in either case, we who spoke truth live with a clear conscience.
The point is: Always speak the Truth and live by the Truth.
Live Truth, Speak Truth, Love Truth, Jesus = Truth = the Word of God
Bring me to Truth or Lies .
How can I be loved more by Truth?
But surrendering to Truth, totally!
Read God's Word, know the Lord Jesus Christ, and be saved from hell, lies and deception, eternally!!

This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’ Exodus 3:14-15
