BibleOld TestamentPsalms


160  Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.


160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.

Citing this verse and John 14:6 brother Alan Fowler writes:

To a Bible believer the question "What is Truth?" has a very simple answer contained in Psalm 119:160

the entirety of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgements endures for ever. (Psalm 119:160 NKJV)

To a Christian in particular, the answer is simple, namely the words of Jesus himself, "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6). However, these simple definitions of truth conceal a major problem, namely that among those who believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God are many who come to different conclusions regarding the meaning of certain passages of Scripture.

We are therefore confronted with the question: to what extent should Bible students agree to differ?. . .
