The pragmatic "truth"

What is truth- is it real?

Article by Marc Aupiais

We believe what keeps us alive. We believe that politician will change it all, that judge is just, voting won't make a difference, we are better off than before?

We believe that they are altruistic, or that we did it all on our own. We believe what gets us high marks, what makes them our friend. We believe what we need to believe, what of truth?

We believe that news, because it has paid off to believe. We believe it Christ, because we must to survive?

Indeed, we must believe in Christ. But truth is not pragmatism.

I believe what I need to believe to survive, but not because I need to believe it, but because I know what we really need to believe.

Torture can aim to brainwash- in the Taming of the Shrew- the sun is the moon, the moon: the sun. A Man is a woman, for anothers voice says he is- and then he is what he was said not to be- it is so?

What we need to believe to live- is not that which others say to believe. What we need to believe is the truth, however harsh.

Truth has a sense within, deep inside- we know it is so.

I believe in God- because it is logical, in Christ- because it is so.

We need to believe truth to survive. Anything else we believe must not be out of fear. We must know and prepare for the consequences of no prior saying yes, and vice versa.

We may need to enter heaven as a little child may- but a little child hearing truth, and an adult hearing truth, true logic- both use all their wits.

This is why I preach intuition, dynamic conscience. If one believes, they must believe emotionally beyond cognitive recognition, if they desire to conquer sin and persevere. For this- they must know themselves, for in this we become close to the God who made our souls of truth.

To simply believe some priest or person, does not make it so. To believe what society says, does not make it so. To believe what we once thought but never knew..?

We must love God with heart, mind, body and soul- not in any wrong way- but with every yet every molecule.

To do this, we must know ourselves, our truth.

To truly know God- is to understand truth, self. Our soul- is the logical truth within the being which contain our destiny and connects us with God. Let us not destroy it. Rather- we must pray and find who we are before any other's identity matters.

We can only save others if we save our self first.

  1. We believe what we need to believe, what of truth?

    We have freewill. We are not compelled to believe; we choose to believe.

    We believe it Christ, because we must to survive?

    Our existence does not depend on ourselves let alone our beliefs. It depends on God.

    What we need to believe is the truth, however harsh.

    Right, because truth is the conformity of the object and intellect. Falsity is when our intellect does not conform with reality. God—Logos, the Divine Intellect, the Word, the Divine Reason of the universe—is the realest reality.

    This is why I preach intuition, dynamic conscience.

    I have no idea what you mean by these terms here.

    If one believes, they must believe emotionally beyond cognitive recognition, if they desire to conquer sin and persevere.

    I get the sense throughout this whole article that you are alluding to the fact that faith leads to knowledge much more easily than does natural reason.

    For this- they must know themselves, for in this we become close to the God who made our souls of truth.

    Exactly, for truth to arise, they must conform their intellectual souls to God Who is Truth Itself.

    To simply believe some priest or person, does not make it so. To believe what society says, does not make it so.

    Yes, there is an objective reality which our beliefs do not influence.

  2. Intuitive truth- conscience etc- God within the inner being, et. Glad you liked it.

    The point was that- what truth is choice, what is pragmatic?

    Yes, choice- but for life or death! Good to read your comment!
