The answer depends, of course, upon what you mean by truth. The Writings themselves use the word “truth” in many different ways. They speak of Divine truth, spiritual truths, rational truths, moral truths, natural truths or the truths of nature, appearances of truth, sensual and scientific truths. Modern dictionaries, not so concerned with theology, define truth as that which is in line with the real state of things, that which is in conformity with fact or reality.
