What is Truth?

The world continues to reject natural law. Science. And yet, the world insists it is the Christian that rejects science. Catholics do not reject science, which is why we reject the lies of this age. The world demands we also reject the Scriptures, because "ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." The prince of lies has convinced us that Jesus Christ did not really forbid divorce and remarriage. The prince of lies has convinced us that fornication is ok, that abortion is ok, that adultery and debauchery are ok. Once saved, always saved, right?

Claiming to be enlightened by rejecting God and his Church, the prince of lies convinced us that we can dictate the truth. I think, therefore I am. A child isn't a human until he/she is two, but a chimp is human? Makes sense to the "enlightened". Two separate cells - both with half the chromosomes of every other cell - once joined, form a brand new cell - one that never existed before - now with its own DNA; and it begins to rapidly divide and divide and divide - if we found that on Mars, we'd celebrate new life, but when it's in a woman's womb, then it's just a choice and a blob of cells. The prince of lies has convinced us that we decide when life begins and ends. The prince of lies convinces us that we decide what a family looks like, what a marriage looks like. The prince of lies has convinced the most educated and scientific generation in world history that, although a person retains their chromosomes denoting that they are male or female, that if you "feel" like your chromosomes are wrong, then you get to change the way your body looks and acts in order to go with how you feel. And the prince of lies has encouraged our media to celebrate that, calling a he a she, or a she a he. And, if you get to decide what gender you are, why not be able to decide what race you are? Rachel Dolezal, white woman pretending she's black in order to self-hate against her race, insists that she's not white. African-American celebrity Whoopie Goldberg said, "If she wants to be black, she can be black." And the CBC asks, "Why can't Rachel Dolezal be as black as she wants to be?" The new word of the day is "transracial".

This is the absurdity that exists when you follow the enlightenment to its "logical" end - complete insanity. The world must be grounded in truth. Jesus Christ called himself "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Jesus is the model man. Mary is the model woman. The Holy Family (Jesus, Mary, and Joseph) are the model family. The relationship between Christ and his Church is the model marriage. Mary and the Saints are model Christians. This is the truth. We don't get to decide what the truth is - that's what modern man hasn't learned from his past. We don't call the shots. God does, and he gave us a Church that can pass on the truth and defend it throughout every generation, promising us that he would not leave us orphans, that the gates of hell would not prevail against us, and that he would be with us even until the end of the age. The prince of lies can keep trying to convince the masses that black is white and up is down, but those planted firmly in the truth - Jesus Christ and his Church - will see the lies for what they really are.
