What is Truth?

38 Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” (John 18:38 ESV)

John MacArthur has a new book out called The Truth War. Al Mohler wrote a short review of this book that is on the back cover.

“[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth-a generation that no longer believes truth can be known.

Quote from Spurgeon’s Last Sermon

“He is the most magnanimous of captains. If there is anything gracious, generous, kind and tender, lavish, and superabundant in love, you always find it in him. These forty years and more have I served him, and I have nothing but love for him. His service is life, peace, joy. Oh, that you would enter it at once! God help you to enlist under the banner of Jesus even this day! [Spurgeon’s last words from the pulpit of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, June 7, 1891]”
