The Truth About Truth

What is truth? Truth is correspondence to reality. It's not just what works, what feels good, what's intended, what's comprehensive, or what's coherent. Truth is absolute, not relative. It doesn't change; only our understanding of it does. Relativism leads to contradictions, and with relativism there are no wrongs and no rights. Things that are in between don't disprove absolutism. Absolutism is not dogmatism. Truth is indeed narrow. For example, the Bible is the Word of God [1], and anything opposed to it is false; this negates religious pluralism. I am committed to bringing you the truth on this blog.
