The Truth Is Out There…
There was a show you may have watched called the X-files. It is about two FBI agents, one who believes in paranormal phenomenon, and one who does not. Together, they work a series of unexplained cases that defy normal explanation called “The X-files.” Mulder, the main character who believes that there is a kernel of truth to these unexplained events and wants to find the explanation, often says to his partner “the truth is out there, Scully.”
Scully is a true skeptic. Nothing that happens, no matter how other worldly, convinces her to believe in the paranormal. Mulder, her partner, is always trying to convince her and others that the things which happen to him are actually real: just not of this Earth.
Sometimes, I want to say to my brethren, “the truth is out there, Scully.” I want to tell them that God does move in amazing and miraculous ways; you just have to believe. However, many times, those I speak to are so mired in skepticism that they reason away anything that seems supernatural and simply will not embrace the truth.
When I say the truth is out there I mean that the truth, the reality of God, is beyond what we understand now. We cannot stay where we are and find it for it is further “out there” than we have ever been before. God has left the normative definition of church centuries ago and is now at a new place which, though it still encompasses the truth we know, adds to it a whole nother level of deeper and broader understanding.
God dwells in the heaven of heavens and this Earth is merely His footstool. Of course the truth is out there… it is out there where God dwells and is supernatural because He is. Let us not play the skeptic any longer but let us be true believers in search of something amazing, something beyond what we know now. The truth is out there, brethren, it is out there in the Spirit. Let’s go and find it!
