Living Together - Trouble with the Truth

Miroslav Volf
‘The belief in an all-knowing God should inspire the search for truth; the awareness of our human limitations should make us modest about the claims that we have found it, however. We ‘know in part’ (1 Cor. 13:12) first because we are finite beings. We ‘know in part’ second, because our limited knowledge is shaped by the interests we pursue and filtered through the cultures and traditions we inhabit.’

John 8: 31-32
If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Ephesians 4: 25
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body. 

Ephesians 5: 15-16
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

1 John 3: 18
let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Proverbs 27: 6
Wounds from a friend can be trusted

Theodore Roosevelt
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Psalm 51: 5-6
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
