TRY SOME TRUTH!
I'm in the truth business. I'm dealing in truth. Interested? That's the problem. Hardlyanyone is. As scarce as it is, the supply is much greater than the demand. In fact, mostpeople nowadays don't even believe there even is such a thing as truth. Everything'scool, all is good, your truth is yours and my truth is mine. Jesus, Buddha, Krishna,Satan... whatever gets you through the night.But that's where it comes in handy to
the truth (yes, that thing nobody believes inanymore): to help you distinguish the lies. You realize that's baloney. The truth is thatthere's a whole bunch of lies out there, you're being spoonfed them daily, and in fact,they're so many, you're virtually drowning in them.You've been programmed to believe that you're a product of chance, of some randomchain reaction that started billions of years ago, without any purpose; that thecomplicated machine of your body came into being basically by itself, through chemical& biological processes, and a whole bunch of lies about other things: history, politics,economics, religion... just turn on your TV.Why? Who or what is supposed to be telling those lies anyway? Somebody who you'vebeen told doesn't exist, which is one of the biggest tricks & lies he ever pulled onmankind. Jesus called him "the father of lies" (John 8), and let me tell you, he's got a lotof children. Look at George Bush. Listen to the news. "There are no secret foreignprisons" & blah blah blah.No wonder people aren't interested in the truth. In this world of lies, the truth has becomean absurdity.So, I guess you're still not interested, huh? This is too depressing, you say. I must beparanoid, one of those conspiracy freaks. Actually, I'm not paranoid. The neat thing is,once you've really discovered the truth, you're not nearly as scared anymore of anythingthat they used to intimidate & bully you into with their lies. You have discovered that theFather of truth is infinitely more powerful than the father of lies, and that if you're on Hisside, none of those split-tongued nincompops can even phase you.How arrogant, conceited, biased, narrow-minded, intolerant & bigoted of me, you say, toclaim that I've got the truth and you're all living a lie, you say? Well, it's not like I've never been fooled before, or that I'm immune to the lies. In fact, I keep discovering baloneythey used to feed me as truth, keep discovering false & wrong ways in my past thinking,I keep uncovering the true foundation everything is based on & the way things really are,and I probably have only begun to scratch the surface. And it's not like I'm showing off with something I've got that you can't have. In fact, I'm offering it to you. It won't evencost you a thing. Just give Jesus a chance. If you have a Bible, wipe the dust off of it &can all the baloney you've been brainwashed with about it for the past decades, that ithas been manipulated, falsified, tampered with, misinterpreted, whatever, and read it.Read what Jesus had to say & see for yourself whether it makes any sense or not. Or if you can't read, watch the movie, "The Gospel Of John." Or best of all, ask Him yourself,what He has to say to you personally. It is a lie that He wouldn't speak to you personally.It's a lie that He's too busy. You see, He's not bound by time. It's a little hard to imaginehow that works, but C.S.Lewis explained it this way in "Mere Christianity:" "If there was acontrolling power outside the universe, it could not show itself to us as one of the factsinside the universe— no more than the architect of a house could actually be a wall or staircase or fireplace in that house."He's not part of the creation, nor bound to its rules and limits, since He's the creator. It's just that we're trying to squeeze Him into the narrow box of our own finite imaginationand perception, which, as I indicated before, has been very heavily shaped and
