The Lens By Which We Gauge Things

We live in a very confusing world. There are very many opposing voices. We cannot even fully trust in parents or priests anymore, because they themselves can be confused and produce discordant opinions.

In the cacophony swirling all around us, how can we discern what is right and just and true?Here is what I suggest: consider the lens of “faith, family and life.”

If a person, position, proposal, program, teaching, directive, opinion, or whatever else, is pro-God, pro-family and/or pro-life, give that your preferential option. If however it is anti-God, anti-family and/or anti-life, be very wary.

For example, if a person claims that a man can become a woman and a woman can become a man, how can that person get other things right? And if a person is all out for abortion or same-sex relationships, don’t trust that person’s values even in other matters.

Ultimately, Jesus is the Truth. But many who speak in Jesus’ name still get things wrong. So let Jesus point you to the lens of faith, family and life.
