Truth and fact are sometimes used interchangeably but they are not the same!
Truth is evidenced-reality, and fact is evidence. Truth is timeless; it cannot change irrespective of time. Fact is subject to time, and therefore subject to change. Truth, unlike fact, can always be proved. All truths are based on God’s Word because the Word of God is Revealed Truth. Not all facts are based on God’s Word. Most facts are scientifically-based; others are simply religious. For instance, that the earth is a circle or spherical in shape is a revealed truth. Formerly, it was once a fact that the earth was a square until Galileo, one of the same breed, came on the scene and said nope. Also, it is a celebrated fact today that the human immune deficiency virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome has no cure because a formal announcement of a cure (in form of a capsule, tablet, or syrup) has not been made and accepted. The present-hour reality or truth is that HIV has got a cure! The Word of God! (See Proverbs 4: 20-22; Mark 16: 18; 1 Peter 1: 23; 1 Peter 2: 24; Isaiah 33: 24; Hebrews 4: 12). In short, the Christian is the medic.
