When it comes to spiritual beliefs, people might say “Well, if you think it is true, that’s good for you. But it is not my truth.” Therefore, we need to explain the difference between ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’ truth.  You rely on objective truth every day. Objective truth is something that’s not based on your feelings, emotions, or preferences. It is something that is true whether you believe it or not…Therefore, when it comes to truth, we need to ask if it is based in reality. Thus, if we say God exists and the Messiah is the Son of God, the first question is not whether this “works” for the person and makes a difference. The first question is whether it is based in reality.—Eric Chabot (from, Why the Truth Question Still Matters)
