“The truth is incontrovertible,” said Sir Winston Churchill. “
You may love ol’ W.C., despise him or have mixed views of his various character, political positions and/or decisions (mixed bag for me, brilliant and horrific depending on the issue) but I think he nailed it in his quote here.
That fancy word, by the way, means “without or beyond controversy, too clear, not capable of being challenged or proved wrong.” HA… even this very concept is something most all of us would dispute!
What I wish to say here is that “The truth both converts and creates converts.”
What humans argue about is what “the truth” IS in any particular matter. God has no such internal arguments though at times is clearly at odds about what is true with/among His Own people as well as those who don’t believe He even exists. Consider that for a bit. He loves us regardless -don’t neglect considering that also!
In the end, what you believe or disbelieve is based on layer upon layer of fact, fiction, personal desire, experience and sometimes plain old ignorance.
Two final thoughts of mine on this are the oft-quoted “All truth is God’s truth” -as well as Paul’s statement in God’s Word (The Bible) “For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.” -2 Corinthians 13.8
Re. this statement of his, Winston agreed with God whether he knew it or not. He knows now.
As always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
