Truth Will Conquer All

Reader comment on item: Further Thoughts on Not Intervening in Syria
in response to reader comment: Truth

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jul 24, 2012 at 13:34

Of all the human organisms that are most susceptible to injury and death, it is the brain. Injuries are many and varied; causes of death are myriad. That the human brain is so susceptible brings to mind the basic truth of its existence; it is mortal, therefore fallible.

The human brain did not devise truth; for ample evidence exists that the human brain does not always grasp simple truth. And just because certain observations by certain information sources say something is so does not give any more certainty of creditability for one source over another.

Now I will not entertain getting more involved in a metaphysical dispensational exercise for a variety of reasons, the most simple being that in order to do so, I would of a necessity be potentially open to some part or another that may or may not have a basis for influencing the mind of another to try using it to come to grips with reality. My perception of reality does not compute with yours and debating it is academic at best; and I am not an academic.

My truth begins and ends with a person, Jesus Christ: no other reality compares or competes with that reality and it is not up for debate. For me, it remains a sole and incontrovertible Truth. Chaos results from the ages old attempts to rebel from that truth, up to and including the 'Arab Uprisings,' and all things involving and revolving around it.

Your perception that the 'west' might be involved in arranging the turmoil in the Middle East is only partly true; the reality being that the world is destined for its involvement in the greatest battle ever known, the Battle for Control of Jerusalem: Libya was just one of the many precursors. The Libyans did not have an enviable quality of life because they did not embrace the Truth. Now the rest of the region will be consumed for the same reasons.

Another truth: the brain is fallible; that whatever perception of its ability to do wonderful things might serve for a brief moment, but the human brain that can prevent the inevitability of death does not exist: and that is why I depend upon the reality of my Truth, Jesus Christ.
