Truth speaks out...
April 7, 2007 9:38pm CST
A story is told about a certain contest on fathers getting the most number of kids in a family. The first man came up the stage with 10 children. The second contestant came up with 15 children. Then the third man came up all by himself. There was silence. Everybody is at awe. Then there was a soft little voice saying "Daddy!" Soon there were more voices shouting "Daddy." The next moment, the whole stage was filled with thunderous shouts of "Daddy, daddy, daddy!" Since we are celebrating the Easter today (April 8), the story reminds us of Jesus' resurrection. We hear about the silence and and the simplicity of that first easter morn. The atmosphere was gloom and quiet. Then came the joy and excitement that the stone was removed from the entrance and there were the rolled-up burial clothes inside the empty tomb. The first witnesses saw these and believed. Then the news spread out throughout Jerusalem that He had risen indeed! The TRUTH is a power that cannot be kept inside the tomb. Just like the third contestant in our story, the truth speaks out for itself. Truth is so powerful, that to be heard, does not need loud speakers as one author says. In fact, truth does not need media or propaganda for it to spread.

Hello, ryanphil, this is a very good discussion about truth coming out in due time. However, many problems were encountered about waiting for the truth to come out. There are some truths that took decades for them to be known and be unearthed. I am sure that you have heard of so many stories to this effect.

yes sir, i got your point. you may be referring to some people who were convicted yet at the end they were found innocent of the crime. i am saddened by this reality. (please correct me if i am wrong with this notion. In this particular case, the truth has been trampled upon, disregarded, thrown away and manipulated. We all know that liars and cheaters will never be vitorious, and the truth, 'tho delayed as you said, would still resurrect, it cannot be killed and buried.
