We are bombarded with moral and intellectual contradictions. Knowledge continues to accelerate at breathtaking speed, too often racing by knowledge as she signals from the side of the road. Black and white, right and wrong and absolutes are ridiculed as archaic ideals while “gray” areas of morality, “situational ethics,” and relativism are foolishly embraced as enlightened reason.
The most perfect action or decision is sometimes hard to ascertain, yet truth is absolute and immutable, nothing will change it, condition will not, opinions and popular acceptance will not, it will survive the cleverest reason of opposition. Truth will always prevail in the end.
When one finds themselves rationalizing a choice that violates their God-given inner guidance, they can be assured they will incur unfavorable consequences.
We cannot look to our own understanding (Pro. 3:5) to guide us. Genuine morality and impeccable ethics must be established upon unchangeable truth. By logical definition Truth can not change, else it ceases to be truth—there can be only one truth for everything, at any given moment in time.
Proverbs 14:12 warns, “there is a way that seems right to a person, but eventually it ends in death,” the monition is repeated almost verbatim in Proverbs 16:25. Similarly, we are instructed in Proverbs 21:2 “every way of a man seems right to himself, but the Lord is the tester of hearts.”
These sage words became the catalyst for TRŪmsg, their wisdom advocates a sapience to guide us successfully through the ocean of faulty opinion and stormy seas of worldly wisdom, they protect us from being led astray by the allure of clever misinformation, wholly embraced they become our lifesaver.
It is my ambition and hope that TRŪmsg will help to further clarity in this present clouded moral environment, first by way of advancing my own self-reflection and honest assessment, and then perhaps as some measure of assistance to my fellow sojourners.
May God guide and bless you as you seek to know Truth and set your own compass true.
