Biblical Evidence for a Correspondence Theory of Truth
Does the idea of truth lead one into being haughty and overbearing? In the guise of humility, many postmodern views have gone too far the other direction. There are limits to our knowledge, and we should indeed have epistemic humility; yet we do know true statements about reality. Epistemological theories usually fall into three camps: pragmatic, correspondence and coherence theories of truth. David Huttar offers biblical support and analysis of the correspondence theory of truth. He then answers some typical objections of the theory.
