Truth is confusing...

I was thinking about Truth the other day, and came to the conclusion (not that I personally define truth) that it's something eternal, or at least I hope it is... otherwise I might as well throw myself into the Rhine.

Truth must be eternal in the sense that it's neither time- nor emotion- nor personal-philosophy- nor situation-dependent. It's true no matter who you are, no matter where you are, and no matter what you are thinking and feeling.

Is something true if I think I can prove it? If a genius can supposedly prove it? If it makes sense? Is something a lie if the speaker is ignorant? If the speaker is careless? If the speaker means what's said at the time, but regrets it later? That is, can Truth turn into a lie?

*shrugs her shoulders*

No -- truth isn't dependent on man...Jesus said, "I am the way, the TRUTH and the life..."
That's what is so amazing about God -- that He wants us to know the truth and not wonder so much about many things in life and death.
I'm so glad you're writing again Mary!
Love you sweetie --
