If God is Truth
Most religions assume in faith that God’s truth is revealed to them through sacred texts, like the Koran, the Book of Mormon, the Bible, etc. However, faith alone cannot confirm the accuracy of any of these sources of information, so the possibility of errors is very high. As a matter of fact, the existence of so many different, contrasting religious doctrines worldwide really proves a lack of knowledge about God. If knowing God is the sign of a good relationship with him, then we just do not have a good relationship. If God is Truth, faith is not enough. In reality, most of our religious beliefs simply are self deception and fallacy, which we often accepted as children. But if the real God is Truth, then false information about him, counterfeit truths, distortions and lies will hinder our relationship with this God. Research also shows that the leading reasons for belonging to a specific religion are being raised as a child inside of it or being influenced by a family member into converting to it; hardly the ideal way to find the true God! If God really is the Truth, and we would like to maintain a good relationship with him, we should love and pursue truth in all of its forms. Therefore, we should validate all information for accuracy and abandon any false beliefs. That is why, “If God is Truth” provides its readers with a more objective, reliable view of God and his mentality, which goes beyond religion and faith. More accurate information about God’s mind and truth will help the reader to connect with the living God and achieve a successful personal relationship with him; one that is based on truth.
