truthThe Poached Egg ApologeticsThe truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear. – Herbert Agar

The Poached Egg ApologeticsMany of you have already found out, and others will find out in the course of their lives, that truth eludes us if we do not concentrate our attention totally on it’s pursuit. But even while it eludes us, the illusion of knowing it still lingers and leads to many misunderstandings. Also, truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The Poached Egg ApologeticsA lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes. – Charles Spurgeon

The Poached Egg ApologeticsAs scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand. – Josh Billings

The Poached Egg ApologeticsGod sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.  – Henry Ward Beecher

The Poached Egg ApologeticsWhatever is only almost true is quite false, and among the most dangerous of errors, because being so near truth, it is the more likely to lead astray. – Henry Ward Beecher

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is. – Winston Churchill

The Poached Egg ApologeticsMan will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time he will pick himself up and continue on. – Winston Churchill

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe truth will set you free…or it will make you really mad.Jack Wellman

The Poached Egg ApologeticsIn the face of this modern nihilism, Christians are often lacking in courage. We tend to give the impression that we will hold on to the outward forms whatever happens, even if god really is not there. But the opposite ought to be true of us, so that people can see that we demand the truth of what is there and that we are not dealing merely with platitudes. In other words, it should be understood that we take the question of truth and personality so seriously that if God were not there we would be among the first of those who had the courage to step out of the queue. – Francis Schaeffer

The Poached Egg ApologeticsIf you are of the truth, if you have learned the truth, if you see the sanctity of the truth, then speak truth. We are not called to be deceivers or liars. God is a God of truth, and His people are called to have an enormously high standard of truth. – R.C. Sproul

The Poached Egg ApologeticsEveryone who doubts knows that he is doubting, so that he is certain of this truth at least, namely the fact that he doubts. Thus every one who doubts whether there is such a thing as truth, knows at least one truth, so that his very capacity to doubt should convince him that there is such a thing as truth. – Frederick Copleston
