Charleston native and TV personality Stephen Colbert is said to have coined the word “truthiness” on his show the night of October 17, 2005. The word is said to mean “claiming to be true, irrespective of facts or reality. This concept is consistent with the views of many contemporary writers and, indeed, many of our friends, who will claim that whatever they feel strongly about must be true. But what, then, does it mean when Jesus says he is…the truth, and when he says he will send the Spirit of truth? Can these two views co-exist?
