What Is Truth?
noun: the quality or state of being true.
Many people come into this world wondering what this life is all about. There's not a problem with that question. Yet, some people think there is a problem with thinking about such matters.
Other people want to know why certain things were done the way they were. It's not to say that people have been wrong all their lives in their way of thinking, but it is possible they weren't right with some of their thought processes.
History has shown that falsehoods have been told to people, and other people later on have dismissed those falsehoods as they set the record straight. Other times it was simply a product of poor record keeping over the years. People didn't write things down as they happened, records were made years after where memory was faulty etc.
In order to get to the truth of something, we must be able to research and look at all of the different possibilities that caused the issue to exist. Questions lead to answers. Answers lead to either confirmation of the initial question or a fault in the question.
Are we not promised:
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye. shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh. findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matt 7:7-8)
