Is truth dead?

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, July 12, 2017.

“The question, ‘What is Truth,’ convulses the world,” wrote Mary Baker Eddy, an astute observer of the world (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 223). The turmoil in many parts of the globe today certainly illustrates that point.

Sometimes efforts are made to obscure the truth. Being able to discern the accuracy of what we read or hear—to separate fact from fiction—is important. And I’ve found help in Christian Science, which gives a deeper understanding of God as divine Truth. What we might call “real truth” expresses God’s goodness, lawfulness, and love. Whatever divides, darkens, or confuses—such as hatred or violence—is not part of or justified by Truth. God, who is also Love, cannot and would not instill in anyone’s heart anything opposite to Love’s own nature.
