If God is Truth
What is important in our lives? “If God is Truth” explains why if you must thoroughly understand one idea, God as truth is that idea. Everything in the human experience starts with the kind of truth we accepted inside of our minds as valid. All that we have built and created, relationships that we establish, our culture, successes and failures, etc. are a product of our minds and the result of the truth we fed our minds with. The truth in your mind even determines who you are. So choosing the most valuable truth for your mind is critical. And if the Creator God is truth, that is the one truth you do not want to reject or ignore. But many people do not even understand what truth is or how God can be the truth. The purpose of “If God is Truth” is to help its readers to discover the importance of God as the ultimate source of truth for man and how to relate to him.
Relativism of the truth has always been prevalent in man. If there are only relative truths it should not be surprising. But what if the Creator God happens to be the absolute truth of the universe. "If God is Truth" shows its readers the consequences of our relativism of the truth despite the existence of God's absolute truth.
Beliefs vs. truth:
"If God is Truth" provides an uncommon perspective about God and his nature that is not based on faith and religion, but rather focuses in rationally and objectively determining what the truth might really be, regardless of the consequences. This book is not for people interested in maintaining their established beliefs, improbable as these might be. It was written for people looking for the real truth no matter how inconvenient or unexpected this will turn out to be.
Although we are free to believe in anything that we want, there are consequences for replacing the real truth for misleading beliefs. For example, throughout history humanity has sought the means to cure and prevent illness. But due to our tendency to have faith in unreliable beliefs and lies only a few effective remedies were discovered among a mass of pseudo cures of purely superstitious origin. Millions died because of our ignorance. In all of these cases, beliefs not only did not help, but caused much damage. In fact, many more people have died because of their beliefs than have ever been healed by faith.
The power of our beliefs can be very strong, but the result still will not become truth. For instance, in the case of false pregnancies (Pseudocyesis) women present all the symptoms of a real pregnancy. Not only do they ardently believe they are pregnant, but they also have nausea and vomiting, cessation of menstruation, breast enlargement, abdominal enlargement and food cravings. Some patients with the disorder even test positive on pregnancy tests. But in the end, the certain knowledge of the truth is that there is no baby.
Only in the last 100 years valid knowledge really started to increase dramatically in the culture of the world. But although we are living now what is called the “Information Age” or an age of knowledge, religion has not kept pace with the rest of our advances in knowledge, and it is still living in an age of faith, beliefs, and superstitions. Each religion has shackled itself to its beliefs, maintaining its traditional dogma with all the errors and ignorance of the past. Their beliefs became their truth. Their truth became their god.
In the case of Christianity, Jesus said, "I am the truth!" But how many Christians do not know what truth is? Even teachers and leaders of the Christian Church do not really understand this concept either. If Jesus is the truth, as he claims, then truth is very important. Christianity more than any other religion needs to understand what is truth for as far as I know, no other religious figure has ever claimed to be the truth. So do not just have faith and believe that Jesus is truth, but know and understand that he is the truth. The book "If God is Truth" accurately answers many questions involving the concept of truth and how this relates to God and to our own lives.
Some who realized that there is something wrong with faith and religion:
Because of dissatisfaction with organized religion, church attendance has decrease significantly in the USA, Canada and Europe. However, rejecting organized religion is sometimes equivalent to being thrown into the unknown and the unfamiliar. Therefore, many do not question their religion. But some stop believing altogether in God and others accept philosophies and disparate ideas that are just as bad, or even worse, than what they previously believed. Some of those who reject organized religion, but still believe in God, feel like nobody else shares their view or do not know where to turn for guidance. But they are not alone. There are over 100 million people in the USA alone who are devoted to God, but do not attend church services anymore.
An alternative to faith and organized religion:Can we find God without organized religion? In the Information Age we finally can, and should, replace our beliefs in God for knowledge of him, and faith for certainty. Today, we can find the truth of God without depending on faith and religion by applying an objective, rational, knowledge based, faithless approach to the subject of religion and God. Do not let a religion replace the true God in your life.
Most religions assume in faith that God’s truth is revealed to them through sacred texts, like the Koran, the Book of Mormon, the Bible, etc. However, faith alone cannot confirm the accuracy of any of these sources of information, so the possibility of errors is very high. As a matter of fact, the existence of so many different, contrasting religious doctrines worldwide really proves a lack of accurate knowledge about God. If knowing God is the sign of a good relationship with him, then humankind just do not have a good relationship. In reality, most of our religious beliefs simply are self deception, myths and lies, which we often accepted as children. But if the real God is Truth, then false information about him, counterfeit truths, distortions and lies will hinder our relationship with this God. If God is Truth, and we would like to maintain a good relationship with him, we should love and pursue truth in all of its forms. Therefore, we should validate all information for accuracy and abandon any false beliefs. If God is Truth, faith is not enough. That is why, the book “If God is Truth” provides its readers with a more objective, reliable view of God, which goes beyond religion and faith. More accurate information about God and a better understanding of the concept of truth will help the reader to achieve a successful personal relationship with him; one that is based on truth.
The book "If God is Truth" applies a modern, knowledge based, faithless approach to our relationship with God. This book challenges the way we have traditionally looked at God and truth. The best way to develop a personal relationship with someone is to get to know that someone intimately. It is hard to maintain a healthy relationship with someone based on conjectures and assumptions. But religion can only offer you unreliable beliefs, convictions and assumptions. And it shows!...
The main goal of religion should be to bring mankind closer to God. "If God is Truth" shows you what the religions should be teaching, if only they knew what to teach. In an age of knowledge, there is more evidence and information than ever, which together with rational, objective deductions can guide us to accurate conclusions. Instead of assuming and having faith, "If God is Truth" depends on the use of reason and the logical processing of information to guarantee its accuracy. The book also takes into account our weaknesses and limitations to process information correctly, teaching its readers to think for themselves.
The purpose of "If God is Truth" is to guide its readers to a successful relationship with the real God, one that goes beyond religion and faith. This book seeks to educate, instead of convert because it is not about religion, but about God. Replace your religion for an authentic relationship with God, unhindered by dogma, creed, or ritual.
