Living In Truth

I keep talking about Truth and Living in Truth but some of you are new to Good News! so I wanted to review the definition of Truth. When the Savior said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." most of us just think about the truths He is teaching. The Good News of the gospel is Truth and those truths shall make you free.  But there is so much more to Truth.

In D&C 93:24 we learn that, "Truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come; And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning." From this we learn that Truth is reality or verity. The Truths of the gospel are, indeed, real, but there are many things in a telestial world that we don't like that are also Truth. When we accept them and make the best of life in spite of them (Come what may, and love it!) we are living in Truth.
