policy of truth



i have never done this before. but this song which i had known for many years but had never really "listened to" or "heard" before floated into my transim a couple of weeks ago and it's applicability leaves me with many thoughts and ponderings.

Policy Of Truth

You had something to hide
Should have hidden it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through

It's just time to pay the price
For not listening to advice
And deciding in your youth
On the policy of truth

Things could be so different now
It used to be so civilised
You will always wonder how
It could have been if you'd only lied

It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth

Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before

Now you're standing there tongue tied
You'd better learn your lesson well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell

You'll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth

Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before

Jon ... you musn't despair at being honest ... life's lessons are weird at best ... those that love as Jesus asked us to love one another will bear with you ... love is patient and kind. We are all learning ... and being kind and patient and generous to one another is what God desires of us. That doesn't mean we won't fight or disagree but our anchor is God and God alone ... not any man or woman or human organization. The Lord cannot be corraled into Armenianism or Calvinism or Universalism .... The Lord is simply the Lord of Lords and King of Kings ... free and yet binds himself in a covenant of love to the likes of us. The Holy Spirit has been given to us to convict us of our sin, GUIDE us into truth and comfort us and we are always in need of that ... :-)

I'm so sorry ou feel like your honesty some how faulted you. While often unconventional, I always found it to be an inspirational quality in you. The only reason it gets you in trouble is that not enough people are willing to be as honest as you are. I know perhaps I am not one to talk as I tend to be a little more guarded and reserved at times, but maybe i admire your honesty to the extent that i do because i see in it what i am lacking in my own life. I'd love to just encourage you in this boondoggle of a time to not dispair.

much love
