MacDonald: truth

Saturday, June 23, 2018
    Feast of Etheldreda, Abbess of Ely, c.678
    Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
    —John 14:6 (NIV)
    I would not favour a fiction to keep a world out of hell. The hell that a lie would keep any man out of is doubtless the very best place for him to go to. It is truth, yes, The Truth that saves the world.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood, v. I [1867], London: Strahan & Co., 1873, p. 144 (see the book)
    See also John 14:6; 8:44; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; Rev. 21:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have proclaimed the truth.
