Reader comments about this quote:
I here proclaim the truth, there is law; no man can create it, add addendums or alter it. It is self evident. I neither ask who is for it or who is against it. It just "IS"

    This quote reminds me of another by H.L. Mencken. One man's religion is another man's belly laugh. Sometimes our "truths" are just opinions.

    The truth is the truth, whether we know it or like it. Let the truth be told -- it requires no support in order to be true. Politicians and religionists like to claim 'truth' as 'theirs' and bind it up in jargon and reams of regulations to justify their 'authority.' The truth is always there, yet the search is continuous.

    Truth must be Rightly Divided. Otherwise the notes in the scale have no distinction, one from the other. Oppression vs. Liberty and Freedom. All doctrines must be Rightly divided. Any co/mingling creates confusion. As with Threskeia religious activity. Study to show thyself approved unto God. A workman that neeedeth not to be ashamed, Righty dividing the word of Truth. 2nd Tim 2:15. The truth is all for you, but not all to you ! At a given point in time. To "cut aright" that which is to you.
