Absolute Truth

By Ldsapologetics
It has been said that information online has no truth filter but neither does information retrieved in any other way. Research takes time to filter out misinformation and it is a skill many have thanks to the age of information.
The result of personal research is the lens by which we view the world. What works for one does not necessarily work for every one. This life's journey is not a one size fits all paradigm it's more about finding what works for us rather than finding what works for others. We alone are responsible for the path of our journey.
We lose ourselves if we live by the dictates of others rather than the dictates of our own conscience.
I don't see the truth as absolute or black and white. While it's true that there are some issues that are black and white, I see the truth as something more subjective to the individual.
I don't mean that truth is a matter of convenience but rather that since our paths are unique then the truth may be different from person to person depending on the direction of their unique path. 
What's true for you may not be true for me. 
Joseph Smith said this about truth; “Mormonism is Truth… One of the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism is to receive truth, let it come from whence it may. (Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 199)
Later, Joseph bolstered this sentiment with this statement, “We should gather all the good and true principles in the world and treasure them up, or we shall not come out true Mormons.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 316). 

I don't believe that any book, even scripture, or any single institution can claim ownership over all truth.But I do believe that what's most crucial and important can be found in scripture or in a church. I feel like the heart and foundation of the Gospel can offer truth that results in immense spiritual and personal growth.We don't need to know everything but we do need to know the most important things.We need truth that results more in our growth than simply being factually correct and right about something.And when faced with a choice between being right or being kind, it's best to be kind.Absolute Truth
