How do we know what is true?

I have a question that I hope someone in the ministry can assist me with. It involves misinterpretations and the Lord's truth. My question is: How is it possible for any man or woman to honestly KNOW the truth 100%? How would they KNOW that they interpreted the Lord's words correctly and understood their true meanings both in content and context? How would they know there were no misinterpretations or misunderstandings? I think such knowledge is above man, and only the Lord can grant it to who he sees fit to. Maybe those things aren't for man to know, maybe we only learn of them once we meet the Lord in person. Who's to say?

    I believe that with God's guidance, we all have our own truths. All else is the essence of Faith. I reflect on "I am the way, the truth and the light" which by having Faith, we believe that things will be revealed in time, with prayerfulness. In our world, it is often hard to accept God's truth and path for us. But keep hopeful, keep the Faith, and pray that your truth shall be revealed. I shall remember you in my prayers as well. Hope no one minds that I sort of jumped in, but I love questions that help me reflect as well. Many blessings.

      Amen, Teal, thank you for your comments! No problem at all, in fact, feedback from everyone is what we want here :).

    Tyler, I think the only thing I could 100% guarantee, is that we will definitely NOT have it all correct :). I heard it somewhere that what God knows can be likened to the ocean, and what we have is, in comparison, a spoonful. What's interesting to me is that each of us has a different spoonful. A preacher we knew, for instance, was very much about "The Kingdom of God is within us", which was the revelation of his life. Clearly, that is not the whole of God's truth, but that was his spoonful. We each have our own, and depending on where we are in life, might not even have a whole spoonful's worth ;). I believe if you humbly steward what you DO know, and remain teachable, what you have in your spoon will grow, and He will help you filter out what does not belong :).

    No one knows everything. We all know somethings. That is why we need each other, the body of Christ. God spreads His wisdom around.

      That raises further questions, but the most important question is what is the truth and how does one find it?

      Tyler, I once had many questions and the Lord told me: "Son, you don't need all of the things to fit. Just allow your purpose and mine to knit." We don't have to understand it all at the beginning. He shares knowledge with us as we walk with Him.

      But if we don't have an idea of what the puzzle is, how can we put all the pieces in the right place? Before my grandmother passed away in 2004, we used to get together and work on jigsaw puzzles. She'd show me the picture on the box and we both sat...  more
