Psalm 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments is everlasting. (NASB)

            There is abroad in the world today, as was ever the case the idea that truth is relative, not objective. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus told his disciples “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) If then this is accurate then there can be no relative truth. In reality the whole concept of relative truth is used as a mean of self-justification, and in that nothing could be further from what I will openly call real truth.

            We have become masters of self-deception down through the centuries. Even in the Church we have used the idea of relative truth to justify some of the most heinous acts ever perpetrated on the poor souls which have been given into our care. For that Lord I will presume to offer my sincere apologies for the arrogance I and the rest of the Church have used to justify the self-righteousness that has led to so many premature deaths and all of the accompanying despair.

            Lord, we will never be able to undo the past. Please make us wise and compassionate going forward.

I have one deep supreme desire

That I may be like Jesus

To this I fervently aspire

That I may be like Jesus
