"Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?" (John 18:38a)
It is customary for people  to deny things that are true to justify their own wrong behaviour.  Even basic, fundamental truths are openly denied, and at times the existence of truth itself.  The words of Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor who sentenced Jesus to be crucified have been found on the lips of many people and in many forms.
Pilate had God stand before him in human flesh.  It was easier, he thought, to go into denial than to face the consequences.  The agnostic and atheist also challenge basic truth and pass it off as superior intelligence.  When a crime is committed, the investigators search to find who would profit from it.  The crime of denying truth exists because it gives a kind of calm to those who choose to refuse God His rightful place over them.
Such denial finds ready acceptance in many hearts, not because it is reasonable, or because of compelling evidence, but because it offers a broader road to walk.  Folk want to believe it, because it fits the natural, sinful desire to live as if there is no God.  But where the road ends is not soberly considered.
The denial of the existence of truth is very selective of its context.  A sick man does not discourage his doctor from a careful study of his case by these words, "what is truth?"  The robbery victim does not chase away the investigators by saying, "what is truth?"  Science was never advanced by that motto.  Why is it used then, when it comes to matters of eternity, and the well being of the soul?
In fact, we have a Book of truth that has stood the test of centuries of opposition.  The Bible is God's gift of truth in a world of lies and facade.  Many people can give clear testimony that when they searched the Bible with an honest heart they found that it "rang true" and brought satisfaction.  Truth has a way of bringing its own assurance to the one who is sincere with it.
Our world today is moving away from the Person of truth.  "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).  He is the subject of the Bible, and the the One you will find at the end of a search for truth.  By His work of salvation which he accomplished when He died on the cross and rose again truth is joined to saving grace.

Truth is the base of peaceful society and better situation and we know that is demand of every society. So first of all we have to promote truth in our society to make progress and we know this is different but not impossible.

I admit that I am afraid of the truth. I am afraid to face it and to know it. I am afraid because I don't want to know the fact that everything is a lie and not real. However, we cannot run away from the truth. We need to face it, whatever it may be because it is for the greater good. Knowing the painful truth is better than to live in a pretentious lie.

The truth is only an instrument in the able hands like a lie. It does nothing itself.
