Looking For Truth

June 23, 2008

I have figured out that many people are only going to believe whatever they want to believe. The truth may or may not be relevant to them.

There are those who are genuinely interested in the truth. There are those who want only the surface truth…but nothing deep. There are those who simply don’t want the truth on any level…especially if challenges them to have to change in any way.

I have a feeling that the actual number of people that are really looking for the truth…the deep truth…is smaller than I thought. I suspect that there are far more people who are just looking for whatever will make them feel good. They will believe whatever is convenient…about the world…about God…about themselves…about others…and yes, that means even about me. I hope I am wrong!

I wonder how many times I have passed up the truth, even while actively looking for it? How many times did I “miss” it, or refuse to see it because it was not convenient for me to believe? Or because it did not fit what I wanted to believe was true? Hmmm…something to think about!

The bible tells us that, in the end times, people will no longer endure sound teaching, but instead, will gather to themselves teachers who will tickle their ears. I hope and pray that I never fall into that category. May I always accept Yahweh’s truth…no matter how hard it may be for me to face.
