The key to truth

February 6, 2017

Looking back, Jesus’ disciples, John among them, wrote their fresh commentaries on past experiences. Only now they could see what exactly had been happening then, what only Jesus saw/knew right then! Not that they hadn’t grasped any of what had transpired, but that they’d missed a lot of detail, the subplots. Now they could read better the true intentions of both the good and the evil who were part of life’s narrative at specific instances.

Only this seems to be (for the apostles, and by extension to us) key to unlocking what exactly transpired: honesty. Not just honesty in revisiting/enquiring of the past experience but honesty in the very participation in that past occurrence. What then this means is, any dishonest participation/involvement in life will cause a corresponding handicap in comprehending truth. Imagine losing out on so much truth for cheap dishonesty!! Let’s, as the Bible puts it, buy the truth and never sell it.
