By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

originally posted by: ChesterJohnThe Greatest unanswered Question of all time, What is Truth?
It has been answered a multitude of times, actually.
Existence is ALL inclusive!
Thus everything is Real!
Reality is ALL inclusive!
Thus everything/all Reality, is Truth!
Truth is ALL inclusive!
"Every kind of partial and transitory disequilibrium must perforce contribute towards the great equilibrium of the whole.." - Rene' Guenon
The only 'argument' exists as 'appearances' in the (vain, judgmental) dualistic limitations and schizophrenia of 'thoughts/imagination/ego'!
Existence = the complete Universe = Nature = Reality = Consciousness = Truth = Love = 'Self!' = God = Brahman = Tao = ... etc....
'One Omni- Self!'!'

The Hebrew term ʼemethʹ, often rendered “truth,” may designate that which is firm, trustworthy, stable, faithful, true, or established as fact. (Ex 18:21; 34:6; De 13:14; 17:4; 22:20; Jos 2:12; 2Ch 18:15; 31:20; Ne 7:2; 9:33; Es 9:30; Ps 15:2; Ec 12:10; Jer 9:5) The Greek word a·leʹthei·a stands in contrast with falsehood or unrighteousness and denotes that which conforms to fact or to what is right and proper. (Mr 5:33; 12:32; Lu 4:25; Joh 3:21; Ro 2:8; 1Co 13:6; Php 1:18; 2Th 2:10, 12; 1Jo 1:6, 8; 2:4, 21) A number of other original-language expressions can, depending upon the context, also be translated “truth.”
Still no change...
Essentially, knowledge means familiarity with facts acquired by personal experience, observation, or study.
Still no change there either. And the word "facts" is also still a synonym for "truths/certainties/realities", i.e. speaking about that which is true/factual/certain/absolute/correct, without error/conclusive/unambiguous/definitive. Synonyms are taken from thesaurus.com. A synonym for "knowledge" is "science" (Latin: scientia). For training one's ability to distinguish both right and wrong, true and false, correct and incorrect (Heb.5:14), one can use this playlist and its description:
Real science, knowledge of realities compared to philosophies and stories
The statement that prompted Pilate’s question is worth noting. Jesus had said: “For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth.” (John 18:37) Truth to Jesus was no vague, incomprehensible concept. He promised his disciples: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”—John 8:32.
Where can such truth be found? On one occasion, Jesus said in prayer to God: “Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) The Bible, written under divine inspiration, reveals truth that provides both reliable guidance and a sure hope for the future—everlasting life.—2 Timothy 3:15-17.

A world leader once asked this very question of one of the simplest men that every lived all because that man said, "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice."
