Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

If your mom asked you if you did your chores, or your homework, do you think she should believe your answer or challenge you everytime she asks?

depends on what the truth is... i mean for the most part no its not possible in my mind
like something as simple as gravity was hard to prove but had to be proven
if your hungry you know it and you dont really need proof just depends i guess
this is such a mind ticker question

The unreal never is. The Real never is not. Men possessed of the knowledge of the Truth fully know both these.

What do you mean by challenging it? By testing it with science? We don't need science in order to know the truth if that is what you might be thinking. We need to be seeking to know the truth spiritually speaking, not scientifically speaking in order to find it.

No. You must clearly understand both sides to issues to make an informed and accurate decision.

Well, if you don't challenge it, how do you know it's the truth?

No, it's not possible. For example, if facts did not have to be challenged, then there would be tons of far fetched ideas in the world that hold no substance to them. There would be scientists not even being scientists. It doesn't matter if it's religion or not. If you don't challenge it, then you don't have truth.

There is a plethora of things that you could not challenge.

It is possible to know the truth, but by challenges you experience the truth. I can see people hugging and think I know that hugs feel great, but if I get a hug, I know it by experience. Just like if you grew up going to church, hearing sermons, following the order of worship, but never reading for yourself and challenging hypocrisy or traditions. Then you read the bible and personally learn that following religious practices and traditions have nothing to do with truly worshipping God. From what you learned or experienced through studying out your questions, and newly found faith...also by testing and asking others why they believe what they believe-you know the truth that sets you free. No, I don't think a full understanding of truth can be known, until you put it into practice. (Colossians 2:8; Matthew 15:1-9; John 8:32)
