(if you are already aware of the following just ignore it i am only saying it in case you are not aware of it)
I had to look carefully to realize you had asked me a question because it ended up inside the quote of my post. As you are new to the site something you may not be aware of is how it identifies between what is a highlighted quote and what is your own words (not highlighted). It is an easy mistake to make and done it myself a number of times.
Whenever you see the word "quote" in SQUARE brackets that is the start of a highlighted quote. Whenever you see "/quote" in square brackets that is the end of the highlighted quote. Everything inside these two points is highlighted as a quote.
You can use these commands yourself to highlight quotes also. For example .
OK now about that question. When somebody asks "what is THE truth?" they are asking you to explain what is it that you are claiming is true. But if somebody asks you "what is truth?" what they are asking is what do you mean when you use the word "truth". In other words what they are asking is "what does the word 'truth' mean to you?"
Does this help clarify it.
Thanks very much for helping me learn that trick. For sure i didn't know the meaning of those two but now i know.Thanks again for highlighting the difference between "What is The truth?" and "what is truth?". Now how does this help in answering the question whether salvation is based on dogma or the truth and the truth here means the word of God.
