Truth

Different sources of truth in relation to God

There are many different kinds of truth:

  • historical truth – truth based on evidence from documents or archaeology
  • artistic truth - something, which people read, see or hear, which appears true through how things are or how people behave
  • moral truth - people ‘know’ what is right or wrong without evidence to prove it
  • scientific truth - established by experiments that can be repeated and always produce the same result
  • absolute and relative truth – people may believe that some things are always true while others things may vary according to situation or circumstance
  • religious truth - people follow a religion and so discover the ‘truth’ which comes from God or a sacred text
