Ponderings … with my Very Good Friend Krishnan

There is One vitally important question we must ask ourselves ………..

Do we want to know the Truth or be comfortable living the Lie?

  • Truth is a difficult-to-please partner. Lie is an easily pleasurable paramour.
  • Truth is demanding. Lie is accommodating.
  • Truth is one. Lies are many.
  • Truth stands on its own legs. Lie stands on many legs
  • Truth is uncompromising. Lie puts one in a compromising position.
  • Truth is scorching. Lies are soothing.
  • Truth shows up in one’s personality. Lies hide it from visibility.
  • Truth brings one to his senses. Lies keep him intoxicated.
  • Truth is stark. Lies are shadowy.
  • Truth exposes the Lie. Lies hide the Truth.
  • Truth is hard to handle. Lies are easy to mouth.
  • Truth scorches. Lies are like balm applied on the burns
  • Truth drives the ego away. Lies give it an abode.
  • Truth digests the Lies. But the Lie has to vomit the Truth.
  • Truth is energy. Lies try to sap it.
  • Truth exists. Lies have to be invented.
  • Truth requires effort. Lies are effortless.
  • Truth has to be contended with. Lies are contentious.
  • Truth is the light. Lie is the shadow.
  • Truth burns the ego. Lies keep ego alive and ego returns the favour.

However, one feels comfortable living the Lie than knowing the Truth because Lie is a constant companion whereas Truth is a one-time revelation.

“Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.” —W. Clement Stone

“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”
—Leo Tolstoy

  1. Thank you, Jane, for stopping by and commenting. There are so many ways to “interpret or analyze – What is Truth”. I appreciate your comments and submit that the Bible has much to say about truth and directly relates it to God.

    The definition of truth in “Harper’s Bible Dictionary” includes the statement that “God is truth.” Thus we do already know what truth is.

    With reference to the Scriptures, I would like to add the following:

    One of the most profound and significant questions in the Bible was posed by an unbeliever. Pilate—the man who handed Jesus over to be crucified—turned to Jesus in His final hour, and asked, “What is truth?” It was a rhetorical question, a cynical response to what Jesus had just revealed: “I have come into the world, to testify to the truth.”

    Truth is that which is consistent with the mind, will, character, glory, and being of God. Truth is the self-expression of God. That is the biblical meaning of truth.
    I do not believe that Truth is subjective either… it is not a consensual cultural construct, and it is not an invalid, outdated, irrelevant concept. Truth is the self-expression of God. It is the reality God has created and defined, and over which He rules. Truth is therefore a moral issue for every human being.

    How each person responds to the truth God has revealed is an issue of eternal significance. To reject and rebel against the truth of God results in darkness, folly, sin, judgment, and the never-ending wrath of God. To accept and submit to the truth of God is to see clearly, to know with certainty, and to find life everlasting.

    Thank you once again for sharing your thoughts, Jane.
    Stay Blessed

  2. There is one truth. There is not your truth and my truth and their truth. It’s so very hard to put in the work to uncover the absolutes of truth and reveal it. Disguise is so easy because you can make it anything you want it to be. I thank God that one day absolute truth will be known through eternity. Humanly speaking absolute truth will never be absolute.
