Episode 120—Finding Truth

Episode 120-Finding Truth Podcast Cover

Finding Truth

What is truth? Where can we find it? In college in the early 70s, I majored in journalism and Bible. Both needed to be based on truth. These days, though, both are being questioned. 

The dictionary gives about six definitions of truth, but I propose two answers are right. Truth is what God says is truth. Truth is what God says is a fundamental spiritual reality. What we as Christians believe is that Jesus is the truth 

So if I believe that Jesus is the truth, why for years did I base my life on a lie? It’s hard when we have to face the cold, hard facts of what we have done. I looked back over my life and saw that my entire life up to about 2009 had been based on a foundational lie that foods made with processed sugar and flour were necessary for my survival. 

Living in the midst of this lie is what kept me stuck in super morbid obesity for years. God was about to reveal His truth to me.
