SOLID AS A ROCK

ROCK. Law. Foundation. Cornerstone. These ideas stood out as I read this week's Christian Science Bible Lesson on "Truth." They all speak of solidity and things unshakeable—exactly the qualities of divine Truth, of spiritual reality.

A quick look at a Greek lexicon gave me these rocklike definitions of truth, as the Bible uses the word to describe God: firmness, faithfulness, security, absolute dependability, certainty, stability, trustworthiness. A glance through a daily newspaper gave me a vastly different argument for what constitutes the truth of things: violent weather, political upheaval, moral confusion, economic panic, health fears, lurking dangers everywhere. Suddenly, studying the Bible to see the real truth became very relevant!
