To serve God
we must know Him, and His eternal truth. We must follow Christ's
eternal and unchanging teachings to enter eternity with Him
in Heaven. He has told us:
am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the
Father, but by me." (John 14:6)
God is with us always in the Catholic Church,
assuring that His truth is present throughout the ages. It is
available if we seek it.
and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock,
and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh, receiveth:
and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall
be opened." (Matt. 7:7-8)
Part of the way that we seek Christ is by learning His teachings.
The Apostles and disciples of Christ stayed with Christ for
years, listening to all that he had to say, learning from His
example, His works, His life. Christ, Who is God, is infinite;
the entirety of His wisdom and ways are incomprehensible. It
cannot be contained within one book.
while we seek God in an in-depth manner, we must learn from
the Church, from Her Holy Fathers, from the teachings of the
popes, so that we can see Christ's truth through the mist and
murkiness that obscures its light. Errors have been proposed
throughout all time to divert us from God's truth. This will
not change. To truly find Christ's truth is to find freedom.
you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
