The discussion on Tuesday night made me think – so much so that I bought petrol on the way home and drove off without paying so wrapped up was I in thought! (I realised what I had done within a few minutes and immediately went back and paid.) This absorbing train of thought was aimed at understanding my scepticism about absolute truth(s). My misgiving is that I cannot see what additional evidence or support could be sufficient to justify the claim that a statement is absolutely true rather than relative or provisional.
A suggested book list on atonement:
I very much enjoyed our discussions last night. Stephen’s challenge to me to look at the Greek word for “truth” in Jn 14:6 has prompted me to look it up. The word used is aletheia which is used to generally mean “truth” across the NT but most especially in John (20 occurrences in gospel and 17 in the epistles) and Paul’s letters (31 occurrences plus another 13 in the pastoral epistles). It would appear that is the main word used for “truth” in the NT.
