Lies We Tell Ourselves: #3 “Just tell the Truth!”

  While religious education and apologetics are both important, we need to be careful that we don’t confuse saying things which are true with “speaking the truth in love.” When Jesus speaks to someone, even when He tells them a hard truth (“Go sell all you have”) He is speaking as someone who has a deep, intimate knowledge to the person. When Jesus speaks, He speaks as the God Who has called that person “out of non-existence into being” (Liturgy St John Chrysostom) and Who knitted him together in his “mother’s womb” (Ps 139:13). And He does all this so that we can grow and become Who He has created us to be. In Christ, +Fr Gregory
