Truth, and Lies

  • Discerning the truth in a world filled with lies is a daunting challenge.
  • Beware of the use of insults and derision.
  • Beware of the use of mockery and absurdity.
  • Do not be fatigued when the fight for truth is long, and hard.
  • Beware of gas lighting tactics. When lies are told often enough, they may start to sound true.
  • Never accept a lie as the truth.
  • Truth is reasoned and reasonable. It is not governed by dogma.
  • Truth can and should be respectful, even in the face of differing views.
  • Truth rests on a solid foundation. It should be compassionate and forgiving, but the foundation on which truth rests should be sound and steady.
  • Truth is often discerned in quiet contemplation and prayer.
