Error Is The Rejection Of Truth
There are so many unanswered questions in this world that it would be difficult to pick a starting point. What do you wonder about? Where would you begin, With the external world that is all around you and extends to the outer reaches of the universe or would you begin with you? What about you? What do you wish to know about yourself? How you came to be? What does the future know about you that you don’t? I suppose your age would have a great deal to do with the type of questions you will ask.
If you were a teenager you might be interested in the person you will meet and love and marry. You might wonder about the career you will choose and how successful you will be. If you were in your twenties or thirties your thoughts and questions might be different. If you are now married you might be concerned about finances and how to provide for a good education for your children. As you approach your fifties and sixties your thoughts might reflect your mortality. What lies ahead for you? You have an empty nest and there is just the two of you. Perhaps now for the first time you begin to consider the external factors of life. What is beyond the natural horizon? How did the universe come to be? Was it created or did it just ‘pop’ into existence? Could it just always have existed and that there never was a time that it didn’t exist? There will always be more questions than we can answer with our finite human minds. If a finite mind can not answer these crucial questions does it require a mind that is not finite?
What would, and where would we find or acquire such a mind? A finite mind would differ greatly from an infinite mind. There is a clue here.
If a finite mind is of the natural realm then our search should lead us to look elsewhere. Where is elsewhere’? It seems we must abandon the search in the natural realm and seek answers from the supernatural or as it is also known, the ‘spiritual’. We should know that our finite minds can never comprehend the totality of the matter. When all things point in a certain direction then we must be willing to accept the information and come to some conclusion. It is said you can never prove a negative; however, we have plenty of positives to determine the truth. Would it not be sheer folly to know we have a finite mind and attempt to understand the infinite?
Can a teacup be expected to hold and contain the ocean?
Why then can we not be sensible and rational and accept what is often so obvious? Could it be pride? Can a ‘fixed mind’ or a ‘closed mind’ prove to be our undoing? Science is a matter of discovery not evidence of how it came to be. It does appear that science may wish to think itself as ‘god’ and refuses to abdicate that position. One may hold onto a doctrine, belief, theory or scientific position but that does not constitute validity or truth. A true seeker of truth has to be willing to accept evidence as presented and accept the truth even though it may differ with what was expected. Science does not have all answers to all things. It is seeking for what it does not know. Truth does not need to explain it’s existence. It is and it always has been. It can never change. It already knows what it knows. Truth has established it’s own identity and needs to seek no farther. When a scientist discovers the truth and rejects it and continues to seek beyond truth it can only lead to that which is not truth; therefore all that is not truth is error.
As it says in the song , “you gotta know when to hold them and know when to fold them”. When truth is finally discovered and comprehended you have to receive it and accept it. Most scientists are willing to accept many theories, though unproven, and hold on to them as though it was a proven fact while rejecting the truth of scriptural prophesy which has been proven by it’s accuracy countless times by historians. If there is an argument about scientific theory and scriptural truth, then the argument should be between scientists and historians who are uncovering archeological finds that confirm scripture as written while books on science are being revised constantly. The Holy Bible needs no revision and remains unchanged. It is a wise man who rejects vanity and embraces the truth.
Truth doesn’t need to change….error must.
