I believe that the world is full of pain and that pain occurs when something is not as it should be. Therefore, I believe that the existence of pain within the world gives us reason to believe that the world is no longer as it was designed to be. Everyone on earth is searching to find fulfillment in their own ways, but they will discover that nothing on earth fully satisfies them. I also believe that truth must be known before someone can hope to find fulfillment in this life. Absolute truth exists and cannot be relative because it follows that if something is “true,” then anything that contradicts it must be “untrue.” Truth will always be supported by reason and evidence and I believe that once someone has come to know the Truth, then the manner in which that person approaches every situation in life will be guided by Him.
