"What is truth?"
[Original article in German]
Since the time Jesus made that solemn confession of faith before Pilate, "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth," and Pilate helplessly confronted him with the query, "What is truth?" this question has engrossed the attention of many human hearts. All to whom Christianity is something more than traditional will rightly consider it one of the most vital questions of human life. Few, however, have been able to grasp it in its full significance, or to solve even a few of its phases. Yet mankind is ever striving to find the truth, although in doing so it often takes the wrong path. Is not the yearning for a clearing up of tormenting, entangled conditions a seeking for truth?
It is characteristic of mortal mind to evade answering such questions as long as possible. When Paul, in speaking "of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come," made the great demands of Truth clear to Felix, the latter said, "Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee." No one, however, can escape this question permanently: to solve it is the real purpose of our life.
