What Is Truth?
In the information age of rapidly changing technology, planned obsolescence, and information overload, can anyone really believe that universal truth exists, and that it can be known, or even experienced? There are many philosophies that seek to explain the existence, or lack of existence of truth.
Agnosticism - The doctrine that certainty about first principles or absolute truth is unattainable.
Gnosticism - A series of ancient philosophies, stressing escape from the world through the acquisition of knowledge gained by only a select few.
Humanism - A system of thought that rejects religious beliefs and centers on humans and their values, capacities, and worth.
Rationalism - The principle or habit of accepting reason as the supreme authority in matters of opinion, belief, or conduct.
Relativism - A theory, especially in ethics or aesthetics, that conceptions of truth and moral values are not absolute but are relative to the persons or groups holding them.
Subjectivism - The doctrine that all knowledge is limited to experiences by the self, and that transcendent knowledge is impossible.

Can Truth Be Known?
Solomon, the ancient king of Israel, regarded by many to be the world's wisest man, sought diligently to find meaning and purpose in his life through rationalism, hedonism and materialism. Yet with all the resources of a kingdom to conduct his search, he concluded, "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." If your own investigation of knowledge, truth and life has left you unfulfilled and skeptical, you are not alone.
At Fellowship, we believe truth is knowable, rational, and liberating. Jesus Christ speaks to all who would give heed to his words, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, but by Me." (John 14:6)
