Considering Pepperdines affirmation statement: Truth has nothing to fear from investigation, my mind automatically as in a flash of light recalled a statement from the Bible which was uttered by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Corinthians: But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every mans conscience in the sight of God (NKJV, 1982). These words of the apostle have always challenged my commitment for truth.

As a Christian, I know I have to live my life in truth and honesty; yet in the world where most people settle for half truths, where the best truth a man could come up with in all his dealings is almost truth, it is really difficult to maintain truthfulness. To lie has become a part of life. It is as easy as breathing. When someone would ask another, How are you, the ready answer was, Im fine, though that might not be the real and exact description of the persons state of affairs. To state the truth presupposes the fact that issues have been considered carefully. Words are not to be taken lightly.

            I am committed to truth since the principles that govern my conscience are biblical truths. Gods Words are the absolute standard for truth and its only when an institution, or students, or a person, are committed and bound by the truths of the Bible can they be expected properly to behave truthfully. During my time at Pepperdine, I believe that because it is an institution committed to Biblical faith, and hence, to the highest standards of excellence, my personal life will be enhanced.

Because truth is objective and must be continually pursued, this dedication to explore and grasp to the end the essence of the issues being investigated will bring us together to further realizations of the true nature of things. Moreover, because I believe that absolute truths can only be found in the inspired Scriptures, I promise to live by its truths and weigh things according to its standard of reality. Since Pepperdine is committed to the exploration of faith, it above all else must pass the truth test because even the inspired apostle (Apostle Paul) has commended himself to every mans conscience in the sight of God.
