The frustrating quest for spiritual truth



   We live in a world of spiritual confusion.  People can't find 
   the right way.  Many seek it but can't find it.  Why?  Because 
   they are so surrounded by false ideas, false values, false 
   leaders that they don't know who to ask, who to trust, who they 
   can believe.  There are so many signposts that point in so many 
   directions, that point down so many roads and paths, roads and 
   paths that always lead to nothing.  Life has so many 
   attractions and allurements that turn out to be mirages and 
   illusions.  Satan has so much power, has so clouded and 
   confused everything, placed so much clutter before your eyes 
   that you don't know which way to go.  Anyone you turn to for 
   help or advice is as mixed up as you and gives you bad advice.  
   Spiritual truth is like a diamond hidden somewhere in mountains 
   of worthless dirt, gravel and debris.  If you don't know where 
   to look for it how do you find it?  Without help from the one 
   man in ten million who really does know its true location how 
   do you find it?  It is a frustrating search.  If you really 
   want to find it for yourself you can find it slowly through 
   years of search, quiet reflection, thought and reading the 
   right books.  But if you want to find it quickly, I think I can 
   tell one where it is to be found.  It is found in belief in God 
   and commitment to his ways; it is found in the right set of 
   values, attitudes and priorities in life; it is found in a life 
   of self-imposed discipline, quiet reflection, love of virtue, 
   simple living, honesty, integrity, morality and goodness; it is 
   found in shunning evil and foolishness.
