Truth Illuminates

C. S. Lewis once wrote, "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."  

This captures one of the amazing ramifications of Living in Truth. When we Live in Truth (also known as Light) it illuminates the world so that we see things differently. When we are deep in the Pit of Illusion there is little light and we do not see things clearly. Life doesn’t make sense. Teachings of the gospel don’t make sense. We don’t see any meaning to life or what we are doing.

But when we Live in Truth that Truth sheds its Light on all aspects of our lives so that meaning is apparent, beauty is illuminated, and the gospel message becomes clearer. When we Live in Truth we see everything around us as it really is and that brings peace to the heart and joy to the soul.
