Has the reader EVER wondered why ‘the truth’ is so often connected with ‘suffering’?
“The truth suffers, but never dies.”
—Teresa of Avila
“Truth suffers from too much analysis.”
“The truth is the truth but it bleeds from a thousand daily cuts.”
Many people believe the truth is something that is easily breakable; fragile. One published piece made the claim that “Truth is under attack in America. The truth will NOT prevail if we do not defend it.”
But is this TRUE?
The truth is OFTEN lonely because so few want to get near it. YET, the truth has prevailed since man started keeping records of such activities. The truth NEVER changes: the truth is ALWAYS the truth. No matter what.
The truth sometimes suffers from a lack of popularity BUT the truth is OFTEN NOT popular.
It is the truth, not some form of style to be seen as “cool” or “fashionable.”
“Pilate saith unto him [Jesus], What is truth?”
What is truly sad about the modern understanding of the “truth” is that so FEW moderns have an understanding of what is true or false. They only know WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD is true–NOT truth itself.
So, many moderns will argue at length about what is true without their knowing what is really true.
Maybe this situation is what Jesus was referring to in John 18:38?
“Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.”
Perhaps that is why ‘the truth’ is so often connected with ‘suffering’ in the modern world?
DOES the reader have ANY thoughts as to ‘truth’ and ‘suffering’?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
—1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
