Pilate's words echo off the walls.
"What is truth?"
The governor has eyes, but doesn't see. He has ears, but doesn't hear.
He came to that which was His own but His own did not receive Him.
What is truth???!!!
Truth stands before him wrapped in bone and skin and muscle and breath.
How many times do we ask ourselves that same question? Maybe never out loud. What is truth?
They say there is no absolute truth. They. Can anyone tell me who "they" are?
They have eyes, but do not see. They have ears, but do not hear.
When grief threatens to kill the life left inside, when need is so overwhelming that it seems impossible to ever be met, when love dies, when hate wins, when minds go insane, and when it seems that hell is winning the war.
When floods flood, when hurricanes blow, when cancer kills, when children live in pig pens, when we hate. When babies are murdered. When nature turns unnatural. When humans are sold. When faces have flies and bellies are large and hair turns orange. When water is brown.
When "they" say it's wrong., When "they" say it's right. When "they" say we're wrong. When "they" call good evil and evil good. When we are accused, persecuted, shunned, mocked and despised.
They have eyes but do not see. They have ears, but do not hear.
And like Pilate, hands to our heads, we scream,
"What is TRUTH?"
Jesus said, "I am the truth."
Jesus said, "My word is truth."
Jesus said, "The Spirit will come and lead you into all truth."
Let him who has an ear hear what the Spirit is saying.
Wrapped in Glory now, Truth waits to be seen by every eye. The earth will quake from knees dropping to the ground. Truth will be Lord. Truth will reign. This time, Truth will be recognized and received.
Don't give up.
Don't give in.
There is such a thing as Absolute Truth.
