If There’s No True Truth to Ponder


“You have given a banner to those who fear You, That it may be displayed because of the truth…” (Psalm 60:4)

In this post-modern age where..(we are told)... only twisted “narratives” are possible, truth itself has been deconstructed and proudly dismissed. Under the guise of open-mindedness and “good intentions”, absolute truth (especially as an objective moral concept based in Reality) has been declared essentialy null and void by today’s Intelligentsia Class1 and philosophies man2.

On the one hand, we are hearing their bitter complaints about “fake news” while at the same time (and out of the other side of their mouth) they are telling us that there can “truly” be no other.



If There’s No True Truth to Ponder


If there's no true Truth to ponder,
Only “narratives” galore,
Son, we're in a heap of trouble…
After that, a whole lot more.

This is how the broad way beckons,
This is how we do things now!
There is no more strait and narrow.
And confusion takes a bow!

Hollywood’s here to direct us ...
(Backed up by “The Nightly News”.)
Po-mo-Faux’s our bottom line, sir...
Deconstructed point of views.

“Wise men” gasping through the desert,
Self-negating all we know.
Good intentions lead us onward…
Through dark circles of The Faux.

Wish we had TRUE revelation…
True light3 from outside this mess!
Truth unfiltered to rely on…
Truth to trust…and Truth to bless.

Truth raised high just like a banner,
Truth with us to be unfurled!4
Gift of Mercy!...Life Eternal!
God with us…..Joy to the world!



“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.” -Luke 2: 8-16
