Can you believe that we are at the end of May? Today’s post will be a fairly short one as I’m working on May’s month-in-review post as well as another video post that I’ll post in the next week or two. For now though, here is some…
Today I found a rather incredible quote by someone who is probably better known for his contribution to science than to philosophy…
“The right to search for the truth implies also a duty; one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be the truth.”
A Right and a Duty
I had never heard this quote before, had you?
I like the balance that it presents… a right is offset with a duty. We are often all about discovering and exercising our rights but can sometimes be a bit lean when it comes to discovering or engaging in our duties.
I think that many more people than would actually admit it are searching for truth. Perhaps they can’t define it. Perhaps they unaware of it… but consciously or unconsciously many are looking for something sure to stand on. Something that will not change with the seasons, with popular culture or with personal relationships. People are looking for stability.
Help with the Right
I am thankful for John 16:13
…when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…
I am thankful for the Holy Ghost that has come and does guide us in all truth.
Einstein said that once you found truth, you have the duty to not conceal part of it but rather to make it entirely explicit, for the benefit of others who are searching, just like you were. You can save them time and effort, by sharing what you have found.
- are you sharing everything that you have found to be true about Jesus?
- are you sharing what the Bible states about abundant life?
- are you sharing what the Bible states about living a separated life from the world of popular culture?
- Mike Long… are you doing these things?
We have exercised the right to search for truth.
Are we exercising our duty to not withhold it?
Thank you for stopping by!
God bless you today!
