There was no such thing as new truth. Error might be old or new; but truth was as old as the universe. (Frederich Douglass, 19th century social reformer)
Douglass’ statement needs to be emphasized again in our modern world: “There [is] no such thing as new truth.” Studious men and women are continuing to make new and exciting discoveries, but they are merely finding new uses or workings of already established principles of science. Recognizing the source of all truth will result in a great increase in wisdom.
Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. … Jesus: “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 1:17; 14:6).
