Almost two thousand years ago, Truth was put on trial and judged by people who were devoted to lies.
In fact, Truth faced six trials in less than one full day, three of which were religious, and three that were legal. Annas broke numerous Jewish laws during the trial, including holding the trial in his house, trying to induce self-accusations against the defendant, and striking the defendant, who had been convicted of nothing at the time.
Before Caiaphas and the Jewish Sanhedrin, many false witnesses came forward to speak against the Truth, yet nothing could be proved and no evidence of wrongdoing could be found. Caiaphas broke no fewer than seven laws while trying to convict the Truth: All these actions were prohibited by Jewish law.
Regardless, Caiaphas declared the Truth guilty because the Truth claimed to be God in the flesh, something Caiaphas called blasphemy. When morning came, the third trial of the Truth took place, with the result that the Jewish Sanhedrin pronounced the Truth should die.
However, the Jewish council had no legal right to carry out the death penalty, so they were forced to bring the Truth to the Roman governor at the time, a man named Pontius Pilate. Pilate was appointed by Tiberius as the fifth prefect of Judea and served in that capacity A.
The procurator had power of life and death and could reverse capital sentences passed by the Sanhedrin. As the Truth stood before Pilate, more lies were brought against Him. This was a lie, as the Truth had told everyone to pay their taxes Matthew After this, a very interesting conversation between the Truth and Pilate took place.
Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You to me; what have You done? If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.
For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.
In a postmodern world that denies that truth can be known, the question is more important than ever to answer. A Proposed Definition of Truth In defining truth, it is first helpful to note what truth is not: This is the philosophy of pragmatism — an ends-vs. A group of people can get together and form a conspiracy based on a set of falsehoods where they all agree to tell the same false story, but it does not make their presentation true.
Unfortunately, bad news can be true. Fifty-one percent of a group can reach a wrong conclusion. A lengthy, detailed presentation can still result in a false conclusion. Good intentions can still be wrong. A lie believed is still a lie.Christian Worldview A recent nationwide survey completed by the Barna Research Group determined that only 4 percent of Americans had a "biblical" worldview.
When George Barna, who has researched cultural trends and the Christian Church since , looked at the "born- again" believers in America, the results were a dismal 9 percent. Now we belong to him, and the world can know, by our brand, whose we are.
Now we belong to him, and the world can know, by our brand, whose we are. But a brand is not only a recognizable means of establishing ownership; it also conveys meaning. What is a worldview?
As the word itself suggests, a worldview is an overall view of the world. It’s not a physical view of the world, but rather a philosophical view, an all-encompassing perspective on everything that exists and matters to us.
The What We Believe series of four books helps children in the elementary grades construct a biblical Christian worldview from a Protestant perspective.
Who is God?, Who Am I?, Who Is My Neighbor?, and What on Earth Can I . A worldview is a compilation of an individual's perceptions of the world, essentially the way a person understands reality. A person's worldview is very important, as it impacts virtually every decision in life.
A specifically Christian worldview, then, would be viewing the world through a Christian/biblical lens. Today I read an article on your website where a question was asked, "If Jehovah Isn't the Real Name of God, What Is?" is a non-profit ministry whose mission is to assist the church in renewing the minds of believers with a Christian worldview and to equip the church to engage the world for Christ.
