If you believe what you like…

simplyorthodox:

If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.

– Blessed Augustine

We do not get to chose what is true. Truth is beyond a belief. It is beyond an acknowledgment. Truth is beyond even our existence. Truth is a Person – Truth is the essence of God. The Word is Truth. And the Word became flesh and revealed to us something that is a complete mystery: Truth in a body.

Regardless of what we assent. What we give a nod. Truth will stand long after we are dust. Long after we have learned better. Truth is eternal.
