Free to Find Truth | Truth is Scattered Everywhere

I believe truth is scattered everywhere and since I left my religion, I feel free to find truth through articles, books and videos, from people, etc.

I was raised in a religious culture that taught my religion was the only true religion on the earth.  I no longer cling to the religious traditions of my youth; I now consider all things that present themselves as possible truth.  I believe truth is scattered everywhere and since I left my religion, I feel free to find truth through books, blog articles, videos, and other people.

No Respecter of Persons

It makes more sense that God would provide truths to all locations on earth because He is no respecter of persons and loves each of us equally.  Reverend Benson spoke from the spirit world to his colleague, Anthony Borgia, who was still on earth, what he remembered about truth.

I read somewhere that no one religion possessed all the truth, but that each and a bit of it, so that taken all together they’d have the truth between them. pg 221, Anthony Borgia, The World Unseen

Currently, I wonder about the honesty of religions so I am not confident that all world religions together have the truth.  However, Reverend Benson’s point that truth is not in one spot is a clear point.  I also believe that truth is found among the non-religious who open-mindedly study.

Source of Inspiration

  1. I am so proud of your free thinking. you had surrendered your license for a small truth, now you surrendered your believe for the biggest truth.
    Indeed do not believe in any man. Believe in the creator, who created you , the earth, the sky, the stars, and everything around you. He provides for you . He cures you. He gives you life and he takes it away. All of us will meet him in the day of judgment to be judged fairly for our actions good or bad. He is Allah—One ˹and Indivisible, the Sustainer ˹needed by all. He has never had offspring, nor was He born, and there is none comparable to Him.
