They say “always tell the truth – even if you have to make it up”. How true! In these days of “my truth”, “your truth” and “post-truth”, whatever happened to THE truth? It’s like the Age of Reason never happened!
Well, it’s nothing new. Nearly 2000 years ago the apostle John wrote his second letter, in order to re-assert the truth about Jesus. Some people were saying he hadn’t been human at all, but some kind of supernatural avatar for God. As an eye witness and best friend, John refuted this fiercely.
In our consumer society, many people still adopt their own version of Jesus: revolutionary freedom fighter; gentle hippy with beard and sandals; otherworldly spiritual guru; whatever. It’s true he bears many aspects, but to meet the real Jesus we have to discover him, rather than define him. And that’s my truth!
