What Is True For You May Not Be True – Pt. 1

 What Is True For You May Not Be True Pt. 1

    Perhaps you've heard “that what is true for you is true for you, and what is true for me is true for me.” Well, believing that may help you get along with other people, but it doesn't mean that the statement is actually true.

    Many people like to think that truth is relative, and there are no absolutes, especially no absolute truth. Some think that Einstein's theory of relativity provides them with scientific validation for thinking like that.

    Einstein was indeed quite a brilliant scientist, and his equation E=mc2 that is in his theory of special relativity (as it is properly called) showed that matter could be transformed into energy. A very small amount of mass could be transformed into a very large amount of energy, which led the way to developing nuclear bombs and power plants.

    But notice that E=mc2 is an exact equation. It isn't E=mc3 or E=mc17 or any other values. In the real universe the things that exist do so in a certain way. The more that scientists have discovered about atoms, and subatomic particles, and the various forces such a gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak force inside atoms, it has become clear that if any of those were even a tiny bit different, nothing would hold together or function,

    Things are the way they are whether we believe it or not. For example, Einstein for a long time believed in a steady state universe, but later concluded that the universe was expanding.

    An expanding universe provides strong evidence that it once had a beginning. And if it had a beginning then something must have caused it to begin.

    I would like to suggest to you that whatever caused the universe to begin must be greater in every way than what was created. Not just greater than the mass and energy and forces in the universe, but greater than everything that exists in the universe. Greater even than the creatures such as you and me who think about these things.

    I would like to further suggest to you that logic, wisdom, insights, learning, compassion, as well as their opposites, and so many other intangible aspects of what are part of our lives, are not just random meaningless accidents that we experience or imagine to have importance. Is it not reasonable to recognize that whatever caused the universe to exist also created it to have such things in it?

    What is true for you may not be true because it may only be what you think is true. The same could be said for me. I am quite sure that many of the things that I once thought were true, I later came to understand were actually false.

    Do we simply give up on wanting to know what is true? We certainly don't give up when we want to know how to get to a destination, or accomplish a goal. And if there is a Creator then that Creator may not only have created everything, but also created a way to know what is really true both about the universe and ourselves and even what we should know about the One who created all things.

    Well, that's all or now. If you'd like to read Part 2, it is now ready and you can go it by clicking here. If you'd like to read some of the other things I've written, feel free to take a look at them by clicking here.
