Truth is relative, some say. Is it? What do you mean? Well, there is no absolute truth! Really? If someone has cancer… is that a relative or an absolute truth?

Fact: you have cancer... alternative fact: you don’t have cancer!? An alternative fact is not fact; it’s falsehood! Paul calls it a trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting…
If you’re a follower of Christ, truth must be important to you! It must be crucial to you! If you’re a genuine Christian, you’re following someone who said: I am the truth! You’re following the Truth! What kind of truth is the Truth called Jesus?
Ellen White uses the expression “truth as it is in Jesus...” God is Love. Jesus is God. -> Jesus is Love. -> Truth in love is the same as truth in Jesus!
Truth must always be told with growth in view… that we may grow in all things…!

Love is critical to growth! Love has 2 components: grace and truth! The Word became flesh and dwelt among us… full of grace and truth (Jn. 1:14).

Not like in a sandwich: 2 thin slices of grace and a big fat patty of ugly truth… No! Mingle them (salad)! More grace than truth!
That’s why Ellen White, talking about education, repeatedly says “it is better to err on the side of mercy than on the side of severity.” Parents, truth without grace will not result in obedience, but rather in obstinacy and rebellion.
The church is the place where you can tell the truth... Actually, you must tell the truth, but be politically correct! Politically correct truth in the church means truth in love!
There is truth! Truth is crucial for growth! Tell me the truth, but not like that! In love!!!
