C.S. Lewis put forth this argument: Jesus is either Lord, liar or a lunatic. You must decide. There is no alternative.
What is Truth?
If we comply with the corruption of this age, living according to its evil tenets and communicating it to others through our willing adherence to its errors, we might well live more comfortably: we might receive approbation from the powerful and attain to high status among a society gone awry, plagued by moral fragmentation. In the end, however, we will have lost everything that really matters.
St. Augustine’s life provides us with an example of the sublime fruits of grace which Christ bestows upon those who fall in love with the Divine Teacher of Truth. In doing so, Augustine was drawn to the Catholic Church, the holy dwelling place in which the fullness of truth subsists through the ages.
Repeating the words of Pontius Pilate as he reacts to Jesus’ compelling witness, too many of our contemporaries ask: “What is truth?” As current events challenge our innermost beliefs, we feel compelled to search for answers about our human existence and the meaning of our lives.
The call of Truth is unceasing and unquenchable. It cannot be permanently silenced but only suppressed briefly. Nevertheless, it is often feared. Stepping into the light of truth always requires change.
