Truth. Reality. God.

Zechariah 12:1
The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person…

In our sophomore year of college, I registered for a class in Ethics but was denied entrance because not enough students selected it as an elective course. Out of a 35,000-student body only 4 signed up for the class; not enough to justify paying for a teacher. In its place though, I took another philosophical course – Logic.

There we had enough students which allowed the administration to hire a teacher to expose us to the historical and known arts of reasoning, decision-making, and truth-finding. But again, there were less than one dozen students in the class.

I didn’t realize the ramifications of the event until some thirty years later. As we live and experience this post-modern culture, we witness every day the distortion of basic logic. Where truth is relative, decision-making is built upon feelings, and reasoning is sabotage with lies, opinions, and prejudices. How is one to journey through life surrounded by this maze of noise and illusions?

When the foundation of a society is without a compass, any direction will do. If someone is able to accidentally identify North, then their search for home becomes substantially easier. However, without a North directional bias, every direction looks as good as the next. From my early camping days, we would classify that as being lost.

If one is serious to discover the truth of a matter, one needs to have a good grasp of reality. Reality is built upon the foundational order of nature and universal laws that govern existence. Order and law require an order/law giver. In religious circles, this Law Giver is given the title God.

The closer one develops a relationship with this God, the closer one discovers His heart, mind, and character. From this and through various circumstances and situations one travels through life, one comes to know and be known by the Creator of Life. Of all the gods known by 21st century standards, the only one which makes the most logical, yet most misunderstood, is the Triune God: Father, Son, and Spirit. C. S. Lewis himself converted from atheism to Christianity because it made the most logical sense – like the sun rising each morning.

So, if truth of a matter is important to you, then acquire the knowledge of eternal facts, historical lessons, and scientific outcomes built upon the foundation of the Creator of reality. Then you will have a stronger foundation that will help you better withstand the corruption and distortion that will come your way each and every day.

Rooting For You in Christ!
