The search for truth, whether in scientific, philosophical or ethical contexts, is the desire of every human heart. Truth as an absolute concept must involve the Supreme Being of the Universe.​

For the Christian, the God of the Bible is called "God of Truth" (Isaiah 65:16). God entrusted Jesus, His Only Begotten Son, with the work of reconciliation. So Jesus was able to say "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice." John 18:37. And again, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes unto the Father except through Me." In Jesus are hidden "all treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:33).​

For the Christian, truth becomes a way of life and a sanctifying force, "Sanctify them by your truth, your word is truth" (John 17:17). It liberates the soul, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free" (John 8:32).

The holy spirit, the "spirit of truth," guides Jesus' followers: "When the spirit of truth comes, it will guide you into all the truth (John 16:13).​

Biblically, truth refers to accurate doctrine applied to our hearts and lives. It gives us an experiential knowledge of God by applying scriptural precepts. Doctrine and application are inseparable. Knowledge without love is nothing (1 Corinthians 13:2) and zeal not based on proper knowledge doesn't profit much either. (Romans 10:2)​

The truth comes at a cost, and we are urged to pursue it: "Buy the truth and sell it not; also wisdom and instruction and understanding." Proverbs 23:23.

The Scriptures prophecy that God's truths will soon be revealed to all. "The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea."(Habakkuk 2:14). He will give an opportunity to all people to know Him and love Him. If obedient, people will inherit eternal life. Then truth will be fully realized: eternal life in full harmony with the Creator.
