Strength in Truth

[Archangel slaying the Devil]

We cannot do anything against the Truth.
1 Corinthians 13:8

The Truth is unshakably strong.

You may be physically stronger than me, you may be more powerful than me, perhaps you could knock me to the ground in a fight, or give an order which would take away from me everything I have. But if I speak the Truth, then I am unshakably strong.

You may be able to take away my dignity, or even my life, but you cannot take away the Truth of my words.

You may have your strength for now, but age will strip you of this, whilst a true word stands forever.

You may silence me, but you will not have beaten me.

The Truth cannot be overcome. It is unshakably strong.

He will repay the evil to my enemies. Destroy them in Your Truth.
Psalms 54:5

Guide me in Your Truth, and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation, and I wait for you all day long.
Psalm 25:5

Understanding of Truth is not something we come to alone, but a gift which we must humbly ask for, and wait patiently for, because the Truth is deeper than any Ocean, and surely could not be fully comprehended in this lifetime, by even the wisest and holiest of souls, let alone us little ones!

[Image]Welcome to Truth Blog.

Most people nowadays subscribe to some degree of relativism…….

“If it works for you, then great…” or, “You have your beliefs, I have mine… so what?” or, “There are many roads, but all leading in the same direction…” and even, “it’s all the same God!”.

But Truth Blog is here to say No! There is such thing as Truth, and it is important!!

Many people are looking for “The Answer”. But the Truth is not knowable like the answer to an equation is knowable. Rather, the Truth is God, and God is the Truth. This means that the Truth is discovered through relationship. Just as when we enter into a relationship with a person, we come to know them on ever deeper levels, and come to recognise their voice & characteristics, so as we discover more and more of God, we come to recognise the Truth ever more clearly, even in uncertain circumstances.

This is why I can say honestly that I have fallen in love with the Truth. Believing in the Truth is not a disappointment; it is not a case of being narrow-minded, or dogmatic for its own sake; neither is it an immature need for security by feeling “in the right club”. The Truth is beautiful and captivating, and seeking it is exhilarating and liberating.

Yes, I would give my life for the Truth. But there are other daily sacrifices which must also be made… I would rather lose my friends and family, the affirmation and respect of those around me, my job, my money, anything… I would rather lose anything than my integrity. In a world devoid of justice, it is the most I can possess.

The fullest measure of God’s truth has been given to, and guarded by, the Catholic Church. So, within this blog, I hope to reflect upon a few deposits from the Gold mine of Truth that is the Church’s 2,000 year history, stemming from the Jewish Tradition before it. Through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary, may we all be brought to the fullness of love and Truth in her Son, Jesus Christ, who is Lord and God for ever and ever. Amen!
