Reality is God, and His son, is Truth.  



John 14:6  "I (as the personification of the concept, Truth), am the way (men ought be), and the truth (about our Reality), and the life (eternal for our species): no Man cometh unto the Father, (in an understanding of him, our Reality), but by me, (Truth).

How can we avoid the implication that "God," then, is Reality?

Are not these two,...Reality and Truth, ... congruent? 


By definition, Reality and Truth correspond one-to-one, do they not?



In accord with a direct literary criticism of what the bible says,...


LOGICAL SYLLOGISM:

A) Jesus is Truth, (personified: [John 14:6]).

B) Truth must correspond congruently to Reality by definition.

C) Then, Reality is congruent to Truth as Jesus is congruent to God.

Truth, congruent with Reality
Truth congruent with Reality

Reality is everything outside our head, and Truth is its reflection inside our head.

Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh

Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), in the Critique of Pure Reason, distinguished between objects as phenomena, (thoughts we conjure to represent them, purely ideas), which are objects as shaped and grasped by human sensibility and understanding, (we think and image them in our mind),...
       ... and (Kant distinguished between) objects as a thing as it is in itself, (Reality), or noumena, (distinct from a thing conceived, imaged, [the mental representation], as it is in itself, as distinct from the ["real"] thing), which do not appear to us in space and time, but only as mental constructs,....
