The Acceptors: Contradiction

Does ultimate truth exist?

Who would be qualified to determine its existence?

If it does exist, how do we know?

If it does not exist, how do we know?

If we do not know, why would we claim one view over another?

If we don’t claim a view, are we really exempt from decision?

If ultimate truth—or any truth—exists, would it not necessitate a response?

If you were convinced that ultimate truth exists, would you be willing to respond to it as supreme?

What of its author?

  1. Does one need an author for there to be truth? Can something not simply exist without being created? All of these questions are understood within the framework of our puny little brains and what we define as creation and existence. It is like asking an ant, do you know there is a universe? But who knows…maybe the ant knows more than we do. I really hope not.

    • Interesting questions! The Author in Whom I believe was not created, but has existed for eternity. So to answer one question, something (or Someone) can exist without being created. Truth, however, is authored. The Creator of the Bible is “the God of truth (Psalm 31:5).” Furthermore, without God, nothing has come into being that was not authored or created by Him (John 1). If God is the God of truth and the creator of all, then truth is originated in Him and would thereby be created by Him. The only truth that may not have been created is perhaps the truth that God is God and was not created. 🙂
