Truth precedes Love
Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time
August 2, 2020 •
If love belongs to truth, then truth must always precede love. This is a very important point of theology. Truth must always precede love. Until you know the truth, you cannot love the thing that is true. ...
What is the purpose of truth? It's to lead to love. Love is the goal. It's the end of all things. ...
When truth becomes overly fixated on itself and only loves itself, then it becomes perverted. In like manner, when you fixate only on love, you lose truth. you're willing to reject various truths, if not all of them, in order to fulfill your idea of love. I would say that this error, this heresy, is probably one of the greatest ones in the world today. Both in the Church, and in society and in politics.
