What Is Truth?

"WHAT IS TRUTH"?
(Pilate to Jesus, John 18:37-38)

Jesus taught "I am the way the truth and the life." (John 14:6)

 

True justice cannot be achieved through words. Injustice comes from the failure of man to come to the knowledge of the truth, and then by faith to live by it.
Injustice occurs when the truth is denied. This happens because there are times when the cost of maintaining the truth is high and perceived not to be in keeping with self interest. Under these circumstances the truth is readily abandoned. This occurs among all people and is due to ignorance, indifference or the active defiance of the power and love of God.
Active injustice involves the accusers. The accusers deny the truth; they find blame in others, whilst blind to their own imperfections. Those who accuse others have God to answer to. Those who are the keepers of the Truth have God as their witness. The love of the truth is the love of God. The love of God always includes the love of others, even the unjust accusers.

God’s Church is universal. The truth applies to everyone and everything, all things belong to Him. God’s plan is to see us come closer to the knowledge of the truth, to come closer to Him, to accept His invitation of our own free will, without depersonalisation. God loves every person. The Father sent His Son so that the truth may be revealed to us in the world. The world however, does not want to know God’s Truth. The Christians therefore, though they are in the world, are set apart from it, for the world is subject to corruption whereas Christ is incorruptible. We therefore, the Christians, are dead to the world but alive in Christ.
Our lives are filled with fantasies and delusions about ourselves and others. Worldly preoccupation allows us to live so that we are "always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." (2 Timothy 3:7)
The keepers of the Truth hear God’s Word. The saints hear God’s Word and live it to their death. They "are the salt of the earth" and "the light of the world" (Matt. 5:14) who are transported by the Angels to heaven to be with God.

The Hellenic Association Club of WA celebrates its 100thanniversary this year. Founded in 1918, the Hellenic Association (Enosis) was the first pan-Hellenic association in WA and is one of the oldest such organisations in Australia. The Association first had its headquarters at 507 Wellington Street. It then re-located to 407 Wellington Street, before moving to its current Stirling Street premises in 1967. As part of the celebratory events planned for the year, a book launch for the commemorative history, written by Dr John N Yiannakis, recording the Association’s history and contribution to the state’s Hellenism, will be held later in the year. The long and significant role played by the Hellenic Association Club to our Greek community is worthy of recognition and celebration.
