The Truth About Truth

We must look beyond humanity to find it

God’s love, illustrated by the heart, builds a bridge through Christ’s blood and the cross to earth, so we can know the Truth. The background is stars near Orion.

One of my favorite authors had posted a new and seemingly unusual story. It was an 8 minute read so I jumped into reading. My first reactions were continued surprise. A mathematician writing about philosophy and religion? Not really unusual, but quite different from what I had expected.

My surprise kept growing as I read. There was a lot of seeming confusion in philosophical conundrums and self contradictions, typical of philosophy sometimes. I cataloged my thoughts and reactions trying to figure out if I wanted to comment or not, and what to say, if anything.

Deep into the story I came across a sudden insight as some statements there related to real truths from the Bible, expressed in a more precise way than I had ever seen. Deep in this soup of a cloudy story was a gleam, a bright gem worthy of contemplation and study. There amidst the philosophical ramblings from a human perspective was a real gem of Truth.

I started writing about that surprising insight found in a philosophical treatise. How many will comprehend why it sparkled and glowed with great beauty as I read about it? Whatever your background I hope you can get a glimpse of the gleam that is there to be wondered at.

My thanks to Tim Andersen and his story about Truth.

. . . . Truth is love,

. . . . . . . . . . pure,

. . . . . . . . . . . . . undefiled,

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . complete,

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and holy love.

That which denies love is untruth.

What passes for truth on this earth is often contaminated with extracts from untruth and unlove.

The real Truth is far more extensive than the human mind is capable of fully grasping, which is why Jesus Christ is identified as “The Word.” Only the eternal and integral part of the Godhead identified as the Son of God would be capable of expressing the Love of God and thus be named, the Word of God. Only He can be the very definition of Truth.
