What is Truth? ¿Que es la verdad?

Last week we engaged on a journey talking about truth.
This is a much needed topic for us today because everything we experience must find itself in what we know to be true.
We talked about how truth matters, and that there is so much in this world that distorts the truth just a little.
It either causes us to doubt the truth we know, or causes us to believe something that is not the truth.

The First Lie - la Primera Mentira

Genesis 3:1 NKJV
1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
Genesis 3:1 RVR60
1 Pero la serpiente era astuta, más que todos los animales del campo que Jehová Dios había hecho; la cual dijo a la mujer: ¿Conque Dios os ha dicho: No comáis de todo árbol del huerto?
The first lie was not a statement. It was not an outright falsehood. The first lie was a question to instill doubt.
We ask questions about what we know is true until even that becomes untrustworthy. How do we ever know what is and what is not true?
It is like trying to ask a fish to define the world around it. The fish may have beliefs and views, but they cannot be accurate for anything outside the bowl.
So how do we know what is true about God? It must not be from man’s perspective, it must be what God says is true about Himself. He gave us the Bible so we can understand what He says is true.

What God says is True about Himself - Lo que Dios dice es Verdad acerca de Sí mismo

Psalm 139 NKJV
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. 1 O Lord, You have searched me and known me. 2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. 3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. 5 You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it. 7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? 8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me; 12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You. 13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. 17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. 19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men. 20 For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain. 21 Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; 24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139 RVR60
Al músico principal. Salmo de David. 1 Oh Jehová, tú me has examinado y conocido. 2 Tú has conocido mi sentarme y mi levantarme; Has entendido desde lejos mis pensamientos. 3 Has escudriñado mi andar y mi reposo, Y todos mis caminos te son conocidos. 4 Pues aún no está la palabra en mi lengua, Y he aquí, oh Jehová, tú la sabes toda. 5 Detrás y delante me rodeaste, Y sobre mí pusiste tu mano. 6 Tal conocimiento es demasiado maravilloso para mí; Alto es, no lo puedo comprender. 7 ¿A dónde me iré de tu Espíritu? ¿Y a dónde huiré de tu presencia? 8 Si subiere a los cielos, allí estás tú; Y si en el Seol hiciere mi estrado, he aquí, allí tú estás. 9 Si tomare las alas del alba Y habitare en el extremo del mar, 10 Aun allí me guiará tu mano, Y me asirá tu diestra. 11 Si dijere: Ciertamente las tinieblas me encubrirán; Aun la noche resplandecerá alrededor de mí. 12 Aun las tinieblas no encubren de ti, Y la noche resplandece como el día; Lo mismo te son las tinieblas que la luz. 13 Porque tú formaste mis entrañas; Tú me hiciste en el vientre de mi madre. 14 Te alabaré; porque formidables, maravillosas son tus obras; Estoy maravillado, Y mi alma lo sabe muy bien. 15 No fue encubierto de ti mi cuerpo, Bien que en oculto fui formado, Y entretejido en lo más profundo de la tierra. 16 Mi embrión vieron tus ojos, Y en tu libro estaban escritas todas aquellas cosas Que fueron luego formadas, Sin faltar una de ellas. 17 ¡Cuán preciosos me son, oh Dios, tus pensamientos! ¡Cuán grande es la suma de ellos! 18 Si los enumero, se multiplican más que la arena; Despierto, y aún estoy contigo. 19 De cierto, oh Dios, harás morir al impío; Apartaos, pues, de mí, hombres sanguinarios. 20 Porque blasfemias dicen ellos contra ti; Tus enemigos toman en vano tu nombre. 21 ¿No odio, oh Jehová, a los que te aborrecen, Y me enardezco contra tus enemigos? 22 Los aborrezco por completo; Los tengo por enemigos. 23 Examíname, oh Dios, y conoce mi corazón; Pruébame y conoce mis pensamientos; 24 Y ve si hay en mí camino de perversidad, Y guíame en el camino eterno.

Conclusion vs. Decision - Conclusión vs Decisión

We can receive the Word declared today and conclude that God is a bunch of things.
Or, we can decide to learn more about God. To make the Bible the foundation of truth in our lives.
Is there an area of your life that you don’t want to submit to the truth of who God is, because you will have to change your behavior?
Let us be people who see God as He says He is, and let that flow into our relationship with Him.
Let’s Pray.
