Whoever the Son of God (Jesus Christ) sets free is free indeed! quoting Jesus in the Christian Bible in the Gospel of John 8:38

Pontius Pilate, standing before Jesus the Christ, asked Him, "What is Truth?" He asked the wrong question. If he had asked, "Who is Truth," Jesus would have revealed Himself as "the Truth" to him. Gary Amirault, founder of Tentmaker

The Truth is not a religion, the correct denomination, the teachings of some great man or woman, a body of knowledge, the "right" book, a deep philosophy, the correct concept or a set of laws or governing principles. It can never be ascertained through the "scientific method," logic or reasoning. All these are instruments that fall far short of being able to fathom "the Truth." The Truth is a person who can only be known through a deep, intimate personal relationship in covenant. Covenant is an exchange of lives. You will NEVER know the truth until "The Truth" becomes your life and your life becomes His. Truth requires absolute, total surrender to the Son of God. It is an exchange of life in the most intimate way in the universe. It is a marriage of souls. It is a bond that sets free. It is a paradox. And when you enter this paradox, you will be free indeed AND you will then also know True LOVE." Gary Amirault, founder of Tentmaker Ministries.
