Is TRUTH hard to find?



"We grow up believing that certain truths are etched in stone and are therefore eternal and unchanging. A lot of what is supposed to be eternal has to do with beliefs and morals that are supposed to affect and guide the way we think and conduct ourselves." Said Haring Liwanag over his Pansitan blog. HL or most popularly known as one of the APO singer Jim Paredes, is one of the most insightful blogger I meet and befriended with in the web. For many years now, he has been a source of inspiration to a lot of Filipinos, not only through his blogging, but his songs, photography, books, and columns.



In his "FINDING TRUTH IN A CHANGING WORLD" blog post, he expound truth, and belief. "Truth is absolute" , he said. "Beliefs can be positive or negative...and they reach their expiration date."

There was once a boy who was confused and wanted to find the truth. He stumbled over James 1:5. which says " aIf any of you lack bwisdom, let him ask of God, that cgiveth to all men liberally, and dupbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

God is the one true source of truth, because He is the way, the truth and yes, even Life.
I don't want to sound preachy for honestly there are so much more truth that I need to know. One of the tenets of my faith and one of my favorite is this, If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things“ and "the glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth."

I leave a comment to HL post thats sounds like this; 



I agree Kuya Jim, that the world is full of confusion and sometimes it's hard to find the truth. But God didn't left us all alone to wander without any help or guide. The Holy Spirit, is still around, like the light of the sun, wherever we are, we can reach Him. We only need to come out from the dark. But sometimes, in our busy lives and in our noisy world, we seldom find time to listen and hear the still, small voice, and thats what makes it hard to find the truth. 

The mind says this and that, while our heart feels this and that. The mind has its reason, but the heart has a mind of its own, and sometimes truth, inspirations, and guidance come and felt through the heart. And most often truth can be felt in the heart. 

Elder Richard G. Scott expound it profoundly here

"The process of identifying truth sometimes necessitates enormous effort coupled with profound faith in {God}...A knowledge of truth is of little value unless we apply it in making correct decisions."
