What does “whatsoever things are true” mean?

I heard it in latin (Quaecumque sunt vera) and I want to know what it signifies, what it means, what is symbolizes. Thanks!

  • Translated into plain, modern English without loss of meaning: "all things that are true". It originates from Paul the apostle's letter to the Philippians, in which he wrote (going by the literal, KJV translation):

    "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

    To put it simply, he is saying to think about good things rather than bad. The "true" here might be the main idea, which Paul elaborates on with the rest of the verse - the things that are true will also be honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praised. Or, he might have meant the scriptures, or perhaps he simply didn't intend the word to be dissected for some hidden meaning.

  • Whatsoever Things Are True

  • This means that god wants us to be true and not lie to be praise.
