Morals and truth, there is a difference isnít there?
Morals and truth, there is a difference isn’t there?

“Don't let your special character and values, the secret that you know and no one else does, the truth - don't let that get swallowed up by the great chewing complacency.” ~ Aesop

The truth…

Values…

Mortality…

Big words by which much in life is driven.

In the NIV version of the Christian writings it uses the word "moral" once in original text translations and truth "137" times. I think this signifies something.

We all want to know what we consider to be true and then once we have decided upon it, we follow that “truth” as best we can, often bending it to meet our own needs or what we would like to have as the perceived need of society.

It is significant to me that the downfall of the soviet environment started when their understanding of morality was corrupted. In fact here is the truth from a moral man who says…

I think the greatest gift of the Soviet Union to modern civilization was the dethronement of the clergy and the refusal to let religion be taught in the public schools.” ~ W.E.B. Du Bois.

What is more interesting is that the western world who for a while was protected against these false moralities is now propounding the very same things and falling into the exact same trap.

There is truth in the world, but not all of it can be created from a human mind. To think so is obnoxiously arrogant. This universe had truth imbedded in it before the first human’s toes touched the ground. Mathematics is inherent in the universe and irrefutably true, but was established without human intervention, merely being unveiled by human discovery.

If truth is absolute then those walking the path to self proposed moral values are potentially walking into dangerous quicksand or to paths leading off dangerous cliffs.

Is truth absolute?





To say so today is to be mocked.

It seems we may be lost in our own self-opinionated smugness.

Many years ago a simple man asked Jesus what the correct way was in life.

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (NIV)

No human who is merely interpreting the truths of the universe can really say they know truth, only that we are searching for it and trying to identify it. It takes God who established the universe to know truth.

Jeremiah an ancient man in chapter 7 of his writings says;

Therefore say to them, ‘This is the nation that has not obeyed the Lord its God or responded to correction. Truth has perished; it has vanished from their lips.

I believe that needs to be said too much of the western world today. Thinking our moral values espouse truth is not adequate to save our civilizations.

Truth comes from the revelation by God. Therefore the Godly followers know truth with greater clarity than most, (that is when they are being honest, because they also fail and are misled by evil at times). Finding truth and backing it up with creative evidence assists. Turning truth to human purpose is valuable if it is not distorted.

Today as we walk and talk, let’s ask ourselves how much we check the truths we hear against God’s wisdom and words as found in His writings in the bible. God knows absolute truth.  If we don’t check truths are absolute or if we distort them, then we are sliding down a slope to unknown destinations.

Today I intend to try and keep my feet firmly planted.

What about you?

 RiftInEvil.gifThe town of Zinaville is dropped into a spiral of evil causing a young man and a beautiful but abused woman to launch into an investigation that unveils an evil conspiracy.

A horrific mining accident results in Joshua Robyn's father being killed. Joshua struggles both with himself and his townsfolk as he tries to make sense of an incomprehensible situation. Is it an accident or a murder? Why is there a seeming link to evil? Why is his work environment suddenly threatening? What is the conspiracy about and what are they trying to do? As action moves dramatically from exotic African grasslands to the heart of North America's cities, the plot unfolds and the pace quickens. Will there be time? Why is a beautiful abused young woman in the center of this plot?

Evil tendrils tighten on their lives and the interplay between the visible and invisible world shows opposing forces at work.

Will there be a rift in evil?

Will they be able to stop the evil in time?
