WORD POWER...aletheia


ALETHEIA (al-ay'-thi-a)

1. objectively

a. what is true in any matter under consideration
~truly, in truth, according to truth
~of a truth, in reality, in fact, certainly

b. what is true in things pertaining to God and the duties of man, moral and religious truth
~in the greatest latitude
~the true notions of God which are open to human reason without his supernatural intervention

c. the truth as taught in the Christian religion, respecting God and the execution of his purposes through Christ, and respecting the duties of man, opposing alike to the superstitions of the Gentiles and the inventions of the Jews, and the corrupt opinions and precepts of false teachers even among Christians

2. subjectively

a. truth as a personal excellence
~that candour of mind which is free from affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceit

ALETHEIA is the Greek Lexicon for the word TRUTH.

No doubt, we live in a world where people are deceitful, and corrupt ~ Truth is something that we all seek!

But, where are you seeking truth?
~ from your boss?
~from the political candidates?
~from your spouse?
~from the news media?

"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, (4) Who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

2 TIMOTHY 2:15
"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

"Therefore, putting away lying, 'Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor' for we are members of one another."

Truth that is free from pretense, simulation, falsehood and deceit can only be found in Christ.


Open God's Word today and you will find the truth you are seeking!

Now that's a WORD packed with TRUTH!
