...if we be honest with ourselves,
we shall be honest with each other.  ~ George MacDonald

Jesus Wept


We all believe some lies. 

And we believe those lies because we think they are true. Some of us believe lots of lies. Some of us believe only a few.

The person who loves his beliefs more than truth cannot be corrected. No matter how much evidence is presented to him, he will not change his mind because he has already determined what he is going to believe.

This is true of a Hindu who love his beliefs more than truth, the Muslim who loves his beliefs more than truth, the Atheist who love his beliefs more than truth, and the Christian who loves his beliefs more than truth.

If we love our beliefs more than truth we will not be able to accept that we have been believing a lie no matter how much evidence we are presented with. 

“To give truth to him who loves it not is but to give him more plentiful material for misinterpretation.”
-- George MacDonald
Many people in the church find it very hard to accept that they have been believing some lies about God (and some lies about what it means to follow Jesus). This is because they love Christianity (i.e. their idea of what Christianity is), more than truth.

“He who begins by loving Christianity more than Truth will proceed by loving his sect or church better than Christianity, and end in loving himself better than all."
-- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

If you love truth more than your beliefs about God you will eventually discover the truth about God.

Don’t be afraid of where the truth might lead. Only the truth can set you free.


P.S. If what you believe happens to be true, seeking answers to difficult questions about what you believe, will only serve to strengthen your convictions.
