truth Elsewhere, the Greek word used here, alētheia, usually refers to the gospel (Col 1:5; 1 Tim 2:4); here, however, it refers more generally to the truth about God (Rom 1:25).

Why does he live that way? The first requirement of a saved person who used to be a sinner is to change, be born again, be new, live a new way, by faith, and many say they had no other option because they were compelled by the Love of God to live this new way.
