Unanchored In The Raging Sea

As Christians, we are not 'the way, the truth, and the life.' (Jn. 14:6) Therefore, when the truth is attacked, we know that people are attacking Christ and His Word, not us. And since Christ has already endured the world's scorn and is now raised from the dead, we are neither easily triggered nor defensive when challenged. On the other hand, we can weep for those who have located their perception of truth within their own ideological constructs. Indeed, we can weep for them because they have become a compass unto themselves in the midst of the raging sea of life. That is to say; to lovingly point out to a neighbor that they are going South when they think they are going North, will not only offend their personal navigational compass (i.e., their own personalized understanding of truth) but also reveal just how lost and unanchored they are. As a result, a defensive and triggered demeanor will emerge in our neighbor. Lord have mercy on all of us.
