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.
