"Is it really possible for a person to know the truth?"

There are so many opinions about what the Bible teaches.

 

"Is truth even attainable in the religious realm?"

These are common questions today.

 

Consider a few observations from Scripture

1. How can a person be expected to OBEY Christ if he is incapable of knowing what constitutes obedience to Christ? - Hebrews 5:8-9

 

2. How can a person be expected to ABIDE IN the word of Christ if he is unable to learn and know Christís teaching? - John 8:31-32

 

3. How can a person be expected to PROVE what the Bible says if the truth cannot be distinguished from error? - 1 Thessalonians 5:21; cf. 1 John 4:1

 

4. How can a person be expected to CONTEND earnestly for the truth if the truth is unattainable? - Jude 1:3

 

5. How can a person be expected to BEWARE of false teachers if there is no discernible way of telling whether or not they are teaching error? - Matthew 7:15; cf. 2 John 1:7

 

6. How can a person be expected to SPEAK the truth in love if he is unable to differentiate between truth and error? - Ephesians 4:15

 

7. How can we UNDERSTAND the will of the Lord if it is unattainable? - Ephesians 5:17

 

Yes, we can know The Truth

"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" - John 8:32; 2 Timothy 3:13-17

 

And you can know if you are saved
