Isenheim Altarpiece

Do not fall for the concept that all truth is relative. Or that there is no such thing as universal truth  In today’s world, many “intellectual people” think that there is no right answer, and that the truth depends on the situation, or circumstances that you find yourself in. Something may be true for you, but it is not for me. They will use a lot of long explanations or clever words to try and justify this position. Unfortunately many good people have fallen for this lie. As a result, we live in a world fraught with divergent views and opinions full of personal agendas and opinions. It is difficult to know the truth given all the lying that happens these days.

It is important as a man that you live in reality and understand the world around you. Truth is truth, and the “right answer” does exist, especially for all the big questions of life that you will try to figure out during your time on earth.  In my life, I have come to the conclusion that Jesus is the answer, and God’s way is the one true way. I formed this opinion over many years and was recently reminded of this fundamental truth when visiting a museum in Colmar that houses the Isenheim altarpiece. This masterpiece is a grim reminder of what Jesus did for all of us on the cross. It is one of my favorite works of art for that reason.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”    – John 14:6
