“Pilate said to Him, ‘What is truth’” (John 18:38)?

Given the context, Pilate’s dismissive tone sounds cynical. Today, a postmodern culture would argue that truth is relative; that there is no absolute that holds true for all people in all places for all time. I’m convinced, because of its philosophical inconsistency, that postmodernity as a worldview is more myth than fact. We do not argue for relativism in matters of science, technology, engineering, and math; only in matters of faith. Arguing that truth is relative negates the very idea of truth. Truth, by its very nature, cannot be many things; it must be one thing. Faith embraces the reality that the Lord our God is the God of truth (Ps. 31:5).
