Dear Friend in the Lord,
Truth – Divine or Earthly?: In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist proclaims that there is an infinite contrast between the Divine truth and human knowledge. Believe in what Jesus the Messiah reveals from God our Father as He Wills that every person be freed from sin and gain Eternal Happiness.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
John the Baptist said to his disciples: ‘He who comes from above is above all others; he who is born of the earth is earthly himself and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven bears witness to the things he has seen and heard, even if his testimony is not accepted; though all those who do accept his testimony are attesting the truthfulness of God is true, since he whom God has sent speaks God’s own words: God gives him the Spirit without reserve.
‘The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything to him. Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life: the anger of God stays on him.’
