The words of Pilate, “What is truth?” (cf. John 18:38) reverberate on today in various forms: “That’s your truth, I have mine. Who are you to judge?” “Truth is what you believe it to be,” and again, “While that may be true for you, it’s not true for me.” Such notions carry serious implications into the Christian’s faith and practice. At stake is what to believe and how to act on that belief. Yet some are not sure what to believe or what they want to believe; they do not know the truth.
