Your Truth: My Truth; God’s Truth; Are They All The Same Thing?

Your Truth: My Truth; God’s Truth; Are They All The Same Thing?

Truth, is it really different, is truth determined by the eye that beheld it? Does the eye’s lie to our brains some times? Could it be that five people standing together witness an event that happen thirty feet directly in front of them have five different versions of what happened when asked? Or, do our brains all see and know exactly what just happened but, always a ‘but’ isn’t there, our inner person, our inner Soul starts to do a ‘Bill O’ Riley’ spin?  Seeking the most ‘advantageous’ ‘version’ of the truth for our own personal gain? Even if there is only two people who see something happen, you and I, side by side at the same time, will we really have different versions of what we say ‘the truth is’? Would it matter if we were from different Country’s, cultures, colors, or Faiths as to what we would say we had just seen? Do our own brains, eyes, lie to our inner Soul? (Science has proven this last one to be a definite yes). It is nice that God ponders the hearts of each of us when He is considering our reasons why we did each thing we have done during our lives.

 

When I looked the word truth up in the dictionary it said: The true and actual state of a matter<But who’s truth, whose version of it? In the dictionary under the word truth when you go into the idioms what it says about truth: in reality, in fact, actually. When I looked up truth in the index of my Bible it said: that which agrees with final reality. In the index of my Bible just under the word truth is the term ‘Alpha and Omega’, by definition, are the first and the last letters of the Greek alphabet. Also, the term Alpha and Omega is used expressively of God the Father and God The Son in Revelation 1:8,17,18. (Jesus speaking) #8: ” I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty”. #17&18: “Fear not: I am the first and the last: I am He that lives, yet was dead: and behold, I am alive for evermore, A-men; and I have the keys to Hell and to death”.

 

Folks, to me being that God is the first and the last, the creator and the finisher of all things that are, I am going to go with His version of what truth is. I think that His opinion (God’s) is of more value than my own opinion and friends, God’s version of what truth is, is more important than any of your versions either. There is only one real truth and that is the version of THE Creator. So when we are telling the truth to our spouse, our children, our boss, whose version is that truth? Is it one with a little flavoring added, you know, to spice the dull up a little bit? When we say ‘we are telling the truth’ are we, really? This post is for the purpose of conversation and for getting us folks to broaden our avenues of thought which is what most of my post are about. I hope you have a great day, stay safe, God bless.

Why Is Telling The Truth Such An Unacceptable Thing To Do These Days?

Why Is Telling The Truth Such An Unacceptable Thing To Do These Days?

 

Does it bother you that so many people lie so easily today? Does it seem to you that there are people who go out of their way on an issue just so they can tell a lie instead of the truth? Which bothers you the most, when you are being lied to and you know it as the words are being spoken, or when you are lied to but don’t find out about it until later? How about when your own children lie to you, or how about when other people’s children do it to you? Then of course there is the reality of having a spouse whom will lie to you while looking you straight in the eyes, it’s always fun having a spouse like that. How about your neighbor, your boss, co-workers, politicians, or even the evening news anchors, do they ever lie to you/us? Do they lie to us daily? Or do they only lie when they open their mouth?

 

I have come across some folks in my life who had the opinion that if someone told them something and that answer turned out to be wrong then that meant they were lied to. Being wrong about something, even when you personally believe something to be true when you said it, does not mean that you lied when you spoke, it just means that you were wrong on that issue. How do we ever figure our what truth is when so many lie today using their lies as some kind of stupid childish game? It is easy to say that lairs have no integrity, but, do you ever lie on purpose? If you are a person whom says they are a moral, faithful person, a good Christian, do people know you to be a liar also? If we are a liar, are we really a good person, a faith filled person, a moral person or a real Christian? One of the biggest problems with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is not that he is a liar, it is that he is a man who lies a lot, on purpose for the means to deceive, as he holds a Bible in his hand and calls himself a Christian. He is the type of “warm water” that Jesus spoke of in Revelation as it is this type of person that Mr. Cruz is that helps in giving all of Christianity, thus Jesus, a bad name.

 

Truth, or truthfulness by definition means the true actual state of a matter, in other words, 100% truth. Another good definition about truth is that it conforms with fact/reality, something that is verifiable. The word truth as an idiom: reality, fact, actually. When I went to look the word truth up in the index of my KJV Bible the sub-title reads “that which agrees with final reality”. In the Bible verse of John 14:6 Jesus is quoted as saying “I am the truth, and the life: no man can come to the Father but through me”. There is only one real truth and that is the pure truth according to Jesus for He is Truth. If my statements do not agree with the Truth that Jesus has given to all people of the Earth through the Holy Spirit inspired Word of God, then I am either incorrect, or I have lied to you. Personally I don’t think there is anything on this planet that is worth lying about. (I speak this as a broken down old man with few days left so earthly treasures mean little to me) Am I wrong sometimes, of course I am, I’m just a human. But, one thing I will never do is to lie to you here on this blog. What good is any blog that lies to people? What good is a blog that is about Truth, if I would ever mislead you on purpose? When you mislead someone on purpose that is a lie after all isn’t it? I hope for your own Souls sake that you just answered that question with a yes. I don’t remember exactly where I heard it at on the TV last week, but it was on some news program and the male commentator made the statement (I don’t know where or how he could have gotten this information though) that the average person (I believe that he was referring to Americans) lies on average 22 times a day! This is not a question that I had ever thought about so honestly I don’t know if that figure surprises me or not.
