The Truth Is God
Consider how. a diamond is formed. Through much pressure and heat its splendor is born. So if it takes. all the destructive forces of earth to create a diamond out of the dirt, then a diamond. cannot be destroyed anymore, and this is the meaning of its beauty and worth. But. if the careful construction of a bomb is the very cause of its destruction, then it can never be. constructed again, and its destruction is complete instead. . If one fact proves a second, and the second proves a third, then we may conclude. that the third is true simply because of the first. And since all the facts. must coexist, any one of them will prove the rest. And if a fact that is assumed does not disprove reality, then we may conclude. that the fact is true and can be used to prove everything. . The future cannot disprove the past nor be inconsistent with the present facts. The first facts. are implied by the last, and the last are implied by the very first facts. The effect. will prove that there is a cause, and the cause will surely have its effect. For just as the past. has produced the present, the present will produce the future facts. Thus all the facts. exist as one. And nothing will change what is to come. 5..
5. We make plans because we believe that certain actions have consequences. So we try to engineer those actions to achieve the goals we desire. But this requires faith that reality respects the premise-conclusion relationship of logic, the premise being our actions, the conclusion being the goals. It is also this faith in consequences that drives some to predict events of religious importance and ultimate purpose. And this faith also causes some to believe in a destiny or fate. See for example, Psalm 49:14, Jeremiah 43:11, 1 Corinthians 2:7, Ephesians 1:11.
