The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. (Psalms 145:18 NRSV)
Marilyn vos Savant, the brilliant woman who reportedly has the highest I.Q. ever recorded, writes a syndicated column in which she answers tricky questions from people who want the benefit of her intelligence. Someone wrote to ask her what was the most powerful idea that she knew of. She replied that "truth" was the most powerful idea she knew of, because it is not affected by how we relate to it. Whether or not we know it, or whether or not we agree with it, doesn't matter, because truth is still true.
Ms. vos Savant is right on target. Truth is powerful. You and I believe that truth is from God. God does not need to be protected from the onward march of science. God is true. God is real. God doesn't need to be defended with lofty rhetoric or blind defiance of reality.
Live the truth!
Loving God, teach me your truth each day, as I work to live it. Amen.
