It Doesn’t Really Matter What You Think #truthexists

When you boil it all down until one thing is left, what do you have?

Forgive my oversimplification, and don’t misinterpret what I’m saying. I’m neither saying that truth is more important than God or that truth is the only thing to consider in life.

But, when you boil it all down, what’s left? The simple answer is truth.

Unfortunately, we’ve given far too much credit to personal opinion in modern life. We’ve emboldened people by saying that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. As has been said, many times, we are all entitled to our own opinion, but we are also entitled to be wrong.

And that’s the foundation we need to work from. Somehow, we have to get people to the foundation of right and wrong. When this foundation doesn’t exist, we do find ourselves in the position we have arrived at today. When you walk away from truth, you walk away from everything that holds everything together.

Should we spend our time and energy arguing over the hot-button topics of the day? Perhaps. But, what good is it to argue on any topic if the destination is “well, that’s just what’s true for you”? There is no point. It’s a waste of everyone’s time and breath if we try to argue apart from absolute truth.

Apply this to any topic you can think of. Imagine yourself getting in a heated debate with someone over the topic of the day, whatever that might be. Feel the tension rise in the room and the pressure rise your blood stream. Go through the whole thing from beginning to end. How do you feel, when you end the argument with “well, that’s just what’s true for you?”

Our efforts must be spent in bringing people back to the understanding that there is a truth. And we just happen to know what it is.

That’s why it doesn’t really matter what you think. What really matters is the truth.
