Can you say this? Why or why not?

Say NOT, "I have found THE truth," but rather, "I have found A truth."

    My truth is simply that, MINE. I understand that MY truth speaks only to me. For others their truth speaks to them and them alone. How could my truth be universal for all people? That seems impossible to me.

  • I'm with Kristi...I have found MY truth, as it relates to me. I also say "you can't feed a baby a pork chop" or "to each his or her reach."

  • I have found The Truth, and I am still getting to know Him. The Bible says, "You shall know THE TRUTH, and THE TRUTH shall set you free." That's good enough for me!

  • I am with Kristi. I have found MY truth and that is all that matters to me. IMO each person has their own version of truth no matter what their belief may be..
