If 'truth is as varied and the number of people on this planet' then there is no truth.Truth is a word that describes the relationship between our understanding and the actual facts or reality.There is no language for describing morality that is rigid and capable of any absolute value.Math is a rigid language that allows for absolutes. So are empirical measurements. A distance between two objects at a given moment in time can be measured and verified by all. 2+2=4 is an absolute, universal truth. Jesus made a statement, "I am the truth....", that is not a varied truth but TRUTHNo. It's a simple statement that cannot be measured or verified anymore than if I claim "I am the truth."but if your statement is true then a lie and truth are equivalent and I do not think that is TRUE.Moral truth is a moving target that is the collective societal understanding of what is right at any given moment. That's why moral truth is so varied from culture to culture, and era to era. It's very real and we live within its constraints every day of our lives. It's "true" and "right" when you agree, and it's not when you don't. Purely subjective. Adding god or Jesus to the equation doesn't change the mechanics.
