The Truth is the idea held by those with the most influence. The Truth in itself is not what is important because obviously, the Truth can change overnite with a new discovery or advance, or rejection of such previous ideas thought to be the Truth.
What is paramount to the Truth is the motivation of the ones claiming to hold it.
I do not condemn Christians for wanting to save unborn babies. I do not condemn women who want to use abortion as birth control.
Both have the right to think what they want.
If we look for the Truth in this example as absolute, than it is simple, and the reason Christians have the moral high ground on this one: if all women had abortions, the human race would go extinct. If all men treated women as sexual objects to be violated and perverted, than the babies born of mass fornification would develop and grow in a vacum of family as the women are prostituted out and the boys are too, in a cycle of death and desperation.
If all women and men followed the teachings of Christ, then only had sex with a partner they have Wed for life and love the children born with all their heart, than the population grows with love which implies willing to forgive which implies social stability which implies education, which implies advancement, which implies new questions to find the Truth.
Atheism is actually a form of Christianity, you just don’t know it. You don’t want people to be judged for their actions. Neither did Jesus. You don’t want the current religious establishment to dominate your life. Niether did Jesus. You don’t want the current religious establishment to tell you your belief was wrong and you should be punished. Niether did Jesus. You don’t want the current morality police telling you what you can digest into your body. Neither did Jesus.
If you read the Gospels of the New Testament, you are reading first hand accounts of what Jesus actually said and did. The accounts have been cross tranlated and reduntantly verified as books were unburied with know translations that matched others.
Jesus’s accounting is written in read. If any person claiming to be a Christian (which, yes, any person can claim anything) but their actions or words are opposite of what Jesus said, call them on it. The Good Aethiest is very familiar with the Teachings of Jesus and how to unbridle them from religious dogma of today. The Teachings of Jesus are that one’s free choice to love themselves and the other’s around them is more important than religious police inditing its populace for doing just that. Jesus walked the earth. He was real. What he said was by both logically and moraly correct, as the two go hand in hand. Its illogical for a woman to want to kill the baby of her and her loving husband in the loving environment of their home and lives.
It is illogical to want to bring a baby into the world so the neglectful mother can let it starve, be abused, suffer, then die at her and a dominant sexual male that abuses and hurts her too. It would be morally unexceptable for her NOT to have the ability to terminate the pregnancy where the conception was one of rape, exploitation, servitude, drug addiction, or otherwise forced obedience to sexual abuse.
Again, both are True and both are directly opposite of each other. Even to the view of the people, the Christian wants to rush to the aid of the neglected baby, while the neglectful couple is spiteful that those that have “it” easier than them should come over and tell them why they aren’t good enough to take care of the baby.
Again total opposites in thought too, both wrong (The Christians are wrong for focusing on the baby and should instead focus on the couple by forgiving themselves for not liking the couple, forgive the couple silently for all the insults hurled, and the happily offer what ever they have to help the couple understand that they are loved by Jesus and that love not hate or spite or sexual perversion, will give on the freedom of all of life’s chains, whether coming from hateful “christians” or those whose freewill has turned from bad things to prevent even worse bad things into bad things because their fun, but no to the person who is being hurt.
Truth is when you don’t have to lie about any action you took to justify what you say, nor do you lie about actions someone else took to justify your claim to truth.
If you never tell a lie, you will never have to tell a second, or third, and so on.
