The Quest For Truth

There is so much joy in the quest for truth. I am convinced that Truth, note the capital T, exists. Additionally I am convinced Truth is found ultimately in God. There is only one major problem, as human beings, there is not one single person who knows the complete picture of Truth. This is not an excuse to slip into relativism or your truth is your truth and my truth is my truth. Rather it is the acknowledgement of our limitations as humanity.

So who's truth is closest to the Truth? Are some truths more true than others? The painful and difficult answer is yes. Only, we as humans do not always know the difference. There are times when Truth can be know by humans, but we do not hold the complete picture. The real measure is not whether or not there is an accumulation of truth, rather is there a living of the truth that has been revealed. There is also a measure of our willingness to quest for Truth. In fact it is more important to be on the quest, than to think we hold all the answers.
