Joh 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find no crime in him.
Agree, with yourself, Truth does exist.
Trust yourself and gradually another person.
Be open to and search for Truth - Patiently and Continuously.
I won't insult you by saying that all will be perfect after finding Truth, because life and people are NEVER perfect, just acceptable. Knowing Truth will be and feel more secure and your confidence in God will mature. As your confidence matures, your relationship with Him will improve, with understanding that He is not responsible for everything we do.
BELIEVE GOD'S WRITTEN WORD.
So, what's the answer? Is It an ELEPHANT or a DUCK?!?!

Not sure 'bout this?
Try Him not Me.

Have each one STEP on you and let me know if the difference is important.
I have experienced indifferent thinking and watched my career, dreams, reputation die. We all have watched others choose death over life and seen careers, talents, health, marriages, reputations die and some went down with them.
Choosing Truth to live by here will carry us and others to Life in Eternity.
