Living Spiritual Rhythms - November 20

It is intriguing to see some Protestant ex-fundamentalists who thought they had the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, now becoming equally convinced that seeking and finding truth at all is a waste of time. This naïve reaction to what was an unbalanced perspective in the first place is ridiculous and borders on arrogance, albeit under the guise of humility. If they hadn’t bought into the illusion of total truth to begin with, they wouldn’t be presently exchanging one false extreme for another. Truth, I’d wager, can be found and still be true, without it ever being absolute. But at the same time, there’s so much about ourselves, nature, and God that is mysterious.
