Purity of Truth Determined by Morals

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true…think on these things.

—Philippians 4:8

 

The light has shone upon men and nations, and (God be praised) it has shone with sufficient clarity to enable millions to travel home in its glow; but no believer, however pure his heart or however obedient his life, has ever been able to receive it as it shines from the Throne unmodified by his own mental stuff.

As a lump of clay when grasped by the human hand remains clay but cannot escape the imprint of the hand, so the truth of God when grasped by the human mind remains truth but bears upon it the image of the mind that grasps it.

Truth cannot enter a passive mind. It must be received into the mind by an active mental response, and the act of receiving it tends to alter it to a greater or less degree….

Of course I refer here to theological and religious truth. How pure this truth is in any place at any given time is revealed by the moral standards of those who hold the truth….Spiritual truth (by which I mean the disclosures of the Holy Spirit to the human spirit) is always the same. BAM076-077

Wherever the Holy Spirit still comes, He will always be found witnessing to Jesus and honoring the Son of God. HS488
