John 18:37-38

Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world — to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”

What is truth?

Of all the questions to have echoed down through the centuries, perhaps this is the most significant of all. For Pilate, his question was no doubt asked mockingly, as if to make the point that there cannot be an answer to the question. Many people today would agree; they believe that truth varies from person to person and is therefore something that cannot be pinned down by any one person in particular. And yet, even though every person in the world turns to truth for answers, there is still this permeating idea that there cannot be a definitive, universal answer for what truth is.

Why the confusion? Why the difficulty? Well, if you are a Christian, there isn’t any confusion. In fact, for the Christian, the question is not difficult at all. It only becomes difficult when we try to answer it without the God of the Bible. Without God, there is no basis for truth. And if there is no basis for truth, there is no basis for morality, for logic, for knowledge, for science, for mathematics, etc.

Without the God of the Bible, all of life is reduced to absurdity. This is the defence for the Christian worldview that this website is making: a veridical defence for the God who made this world by way of arguing for the necessity for His existence.

My hope and prayer for this website is that it would bring the unbeliever face to face with God’s truth, culminating in the glorious gospel of our risen Lord, Jesus Christ. I pray further that it would also serve as an edifying resource for Christians, to help them and perhaps better equip them for the privileged call that we all share to preach the gospel to all the nations.

May the Lord be pleased to use this website for the glory of His name.
