What is Truth?

What is truth?

Pres. Uchtdorf said “never in the history of the world has it been more important to learn how to correctly discern between truth and error.” And that the adversary has many cunning strategies for keeping mortals from the truth. He offers the belief that truth is relative; appealing to our sense of tolerance and fairness, he keeps the real truth hidden by claiming that one person’s “truth” is as valid as any other.

This is such an interesting statement, because I am living with the ramifications of this in my daughter. She has left the church. Mostly because of gay marriage, gay rights, feminism, and many other hot button topics of the times.

She has become a crusader for the rights of the “oppressed” while becoming antagonistic toward our rights of religious freedom.

She looks at us as deceived and gullible, blind to the truths of science and the dogma of the day.

I am so grateful to be a temple worker and to be studying in the Lord’s university, where I know that the Gospel is true, marriage is ordained of God, gender is an essential characteristic, and that families can be forever. 

This is truth!
