There’s a great scene in “A Few Good Men” where Lt. Kaffey (Tom Cruise)demands the ‘truth’ about ‘Code Red’ from the Colonel(Jack Nicholson). The scene explodes along with the temper of the Colonel and he hangs himself, then and there. TRUTH is very important and difficult to ascertain today. To most folks, TRUTH is ‘as perceived’. Since a majority doubt that there is an ‘absolute’, searching for TRUTH is like walking through a minefield. In the gospel of John, Jesus is instructing the Jews who believe in Him,
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8: 32).
What this says to me is there is TRUTH to be found and to live on, but it can only come through direct FAITH in Jesus Christ, everything else is a LIE. We must not live in the gray area of life. Our mission is determined by our CREATOR at conception and our course is set if we only believe and follow GOD’s WILL. Otherwise we could be the one to whom God says, “Depart from me, I never knew you!” TRUST me. You simply do not wish to go THERE. That’s what I get from MY Box of Chocolates. AMEN
