Truth: A five Minute Friday Post

 

What is truth?

It's interesting that that is even a question these days. Right?!

As an educator, I have seen the truth in many schools (even religious ones) relegated to a corner.

Whose truth is it anyway?

What has taken the place of real, absolute truth? Your truth and my truth and whatever someone wants to make up as "their truth". Students are often asked to "construct their own truth" which is very different from "find the truth". I agree that with some things like feelings- the truth is different for you and me. What I feel about something is different that what someone else feels.

But when it come to most things, the truth is the truth. We really know deep down that is true and what is not. It's more a matter of do we want to accept it, or not? That is the real question.

Accepting the truth is liberating. Go for it!

    Lisa,
    It truly is amazing how our culture has warped, twisted and made the truth all about how we feel. At the end of the day, truth is truth and truth is Jesus. He always has the final say about truth. It’s so hard to navigate the waters of a culture who’s “truth” is always fluctuating, moving and shifting. May they come to know the immovable, unshakeable, unwavering Truth of Christ in whom there is no shifting shadow.

    Hi Lisa – I’m next door to you (at #30) at Five Minute Friday today. About your last point, I think accepting the truth is one of the biggest challenges of anyone’s life. A book I found influential, Changes That Heal by Dr. Henry Cloud, has a sentence that has stayed with me for many years: “The truth is always your friend.” Perhaps realizing that can help us accept it more easily. Thanks for sharing your thoughts today.

    So true- it can be easy to fall into thinking that creating our own truth is the way to freedom, but true freedom is found in surrendering to the real truth. Visiting from FMF#12.
