Doctrine of Truth

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:27 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the happy, sunny, well-to-do, wishing well island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Saturday morning ‘down on the docks’ of historic Hyannis Harbor, a beautiful day on tap, this 27th day of August, 2016, sporting those pure blue skies above, seasonal temperatures, light south/southeastern breeze and an faint echo from the deep, deep blue Atlantic, beckoning one back to the place from where we all came…

The following is an excerpt from an ancient book written in Latin way, way back in the year of 1429 A.D., “The Imitation of Christ”, by Thomas A Kempis, offering up some wisdom that is sorely missing from our collective experience on this little ‘blue spinning ball’ in an ‘infinite and expanding universe?’…

“Hello!  McFly!  Is this thing on?  Think, McFly, Think…”

(credit the classic 1985 film “Back to the Future”, starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and the voice of that famous quote, Thomas F. Wilson)

Beware of the great deception, an upside down/backwards approaching storm; a comical, grandiose world wide webbed attraction, coming to a theater near you soon!

Have a great Saturday!

“Happy is he whom Truth teacheth by itself, not by figures and words that pass, but as it is in itself. (Ps. 17:36; Ps. 28:26).  Our opinion and our sense often deceive us, and discover but little.

What availeth a great dispute about abstruse and obscure matters, for not knowing which we shall not be questioned at the Day of Judgement?

It is a great folly for us to neglect things profitable and necessary, and willingly to busy ourselves about those which are curious and hurtful.  We have eyes and see not. (Ps. 115:5).

And what need we concern ourselves about terms of philosophy?

He to whom the eternal Word speaketh, is set at liberty from a multitude of opinions.

From one word are all things, and this one all things speak; and this is the beginning which also speaketh to us.

Without this word, no one understands or judges rightly.

He to whom all things are one, and who draws all things to one, and who sees all things in one, may be steady in heart, and peaceably repose in God.  (1 Cor. 2:2).

Oh Truth!  my God, make me one with Thee in eternal love.”
