Truth is conforming one’s words to reality.

So, what do we do with that?!
So what is reality, anyway?
Free Dictionary says this: the state of being real
Meaning; to tell the truth, I must conform the words I speak to what is real; not what I think, not what I want, not what I feel but what actually is? Yes?
Wow! How often do we tell the truth?
John 8:32 King James Version (KJV) 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. source
Perhaps we tell the truth to the extent that we are free in JESUS.
