Climbing Further up Veritas Mountain is a beacon of light in the coming tsunami of darkness called the “Religion of Self.” It offers a foundation in Truth within the storm of moral relativism. It is a great resource for those who are curious about the basic principles of the Christian faith, for those in the faith who are learning how the faith applies to the contemporary “norms” of our day, and for those Catholics who have always gone through the motions of their faith but do not quite know “why.”

“Many of us live by the standards of behavior we set for ourselves. We make up our own code of morality and we make up our own rules. If we believe that morality and Truth are relative and individual, we cannot believe in God. God defines perfection in all areas. He is perfect Love, Mercy, Power, Justice, Knowledge, and Ultimate Reality. If you really believe in God, you therefore must believe in objective Truth.

In discovering that ‘There is a God and I am not Him,’ I began to understand that there is objective, unadulterated Truth: Truth that is still true whether I like it or not; Truth that is still true whether or not I have a different opinion; Truth that is still true whether or not I have the ability to live up to that standard. Truth is not a democracy. Truth is not an opinion poll. Truth is Reality. I have the free will to accept it…or reject it and practice Ryanism. If ‘There is a God and I am not Him,’ then there is Truth that transcends the desires of my will and what I prefer to make up on my own.”
