Yup. It's a redundant statement, but I felt that it really needed to be reiterated. Growing up, I've heard many "truths" which if it were true would not be contradictory -yet they were. I've concluded then that were it true, it would hold true then now and later. So are there really many truths or one truth? The conclusion I've experienced with that is that there is ONE Truth and many voices -we have as yet to see the big picture. Truth is holistic and not contradictory to itself. The "truths" I've encountered in growing up had everything to do with society and culture and nothing to do with REAL TRUTH. When we split up the truth the truth becomes muddy and contradictory (*hence why some would argue that the Bible contradicts itself. I argue it doesn't). The truth is not negative -we are so fixated on what something is not that we cannot define what it IS. Truth is living -not something to die for: as Oscar Wilde aptly put it, dying for something doesn't necessarily make it true (*paraphrased) -it just makes you dead.
