In Isaiah 59:14, the prophet spoke during one bleak period in Israel’s history of rebellion against the authority of God in terms in terms of violating the concept of truth by mourning, “Truth is fallen in the public square.” Although the Bible doesn’t define truth, it everywhere employs that concept in a manner consistent with Aristotle’s views that: 1) truth is an assertion of fact which in fact harmonizes with the state of affairs that it describes, and 2) truth is a concept which one is obligated to obey.
Nevertheless, the absence of truth that Isaiah bemoaned was (and is) limited in scope. Truth has in actual fact NOT fallen in either heaven or God’s creation. In addition to the truthful character of His own Being, He has also instilled order into his creation both morally and ontologically. Nevertheless, whatever we do in defiance of his will results in chaos in our every interaction with it. It is out of God’s love that He designed us to live in harmony with His will. Just as symphonic orchestra players must follow their conductor to produce beautiful music together, so we are called to be reconciled to our Maker and Redeemer through His Son Jesus Christ. God invites each and every person to turn away from our independence from Him, and take the step of receiving His salvation and forgiveness (2 Cor. 5:17-6:2). It by this course alone the He can set us into both a harmonious relationship with Himself and restore us into a functional relationship with His created order. Yet this is also the only means to know harmony with God’s creation and redemption, both individually and across society. I fully acknowledge that my forthcoming conclusion may broadly be received with ridicule. Yet in fact, the present course of our culture yields no indication that it is progressing toward the better. Nothing less then is called for than turning from our present course and participating together in Christian salvation and reformation.

 The Greek word designating the creator in this passage is logos, from which our word “logic” (and rationality) is employed.
 Ontology is a branch of knowledge which considers the very nature of existence in all its material aspects.
