PURSUIT OF TRUTH
“Eternal truth” is not what I believe.
Truth is greater than me.
Truth is not even what I know – for truth is larger than anything I know. Truth is fact. I may not believe it, I may not know it, but that does not change it. It is there, nevertheless, waiting to be discovered and believed. Truth does not depend upon the unsettled and changing opinions of men. It was there before it was believed and it remains truth whether it is believed or not. Truth is true. Reason does not originate it nor create it. It merely discovers it. Consequently, reason is not its source. Truth goes back beyond the beginning of reason. God is there; the Source of truth. Some would have us believe that the church is the source of truth – particularly in matters of theology. They are wrong. The church is the product of truth. It does not originate it. The church came into being by accepting Divine revelation. The church is not the source of that revelation. Truth goes beyond the church. It is antecedent to it.
Truth – Eternal Truth!

God’s greatest gift to the honest in heart
Is greater truth.
