In pursuit of truth.
Many ‘educated’ individuals have been swayed to believe that there is no God and that everything can be explained away in some scientific theory. But the fact that they are referred to as theories is telling in itself. There have been many theories that as scientific study continues change. Light is an example. There is still many debates as to whether light is a particle or wave and most text books refer to it as both because it has properties of both. There are still many theories as to how the earth even came into existence.
Besides scientific ‘truths’ there is also philosophical ‘truths’ that through out time have changed as society dictates. What is an accepted truth has sometime become an exposed lie. Even religions leaders have gravely mislead the masses at times. There have been massive suicides, witch-hunts, and other disasters when people have relied too heavily on people for answers. Truth must be sought after through the spirit. Through the Holy Ghost we may know the truth of all things. This does not take away the responsibility to study and learn. Sincere prayer is a key element besides study and pondering.
It is vital that we pursue truth in order to find it. Truth is not something that we get without effort but honest effort is rewarded.
