How can we make sense of a world where all who have something to hide live in constant fear of being exposed by a power seeking, money hungry— or ever loving rival?
How different are such thoughts from the “What is truth?” asked by a cynical judge when he was asked to seal the fate of someone who was a truth-teller by nature?
Earlier that night, in a quieter place, Jesus had confided to his friends, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me.”
A long time ago, I learned to use those words as a reason to believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven. Now I’m thinking I may have missed what he was also saying about how to find our way, truth, and life in every clear and present danger. Three years earlier he had said, “Follow me.” Now as the sun went down he was still leading the way.
Today, on Wikileak Sea, no one seems to be able to walk on water, or quiet wild, swirling winds. In the darkness, we might think we’re seeing a ghost, a devil or worse. But let’s not be surprised if we hear the familiar voice of an ever-loving rival, saying, “It’s me”. “Don’t be afraid.” “Follow me”.
