The “truth” that makes another man seem cheap hides another truth that we should never forget, and which would make him remain always worthy of honor in our sight. To destroy truth with truth under the pretext of being sincere is a very insincere way of telling a lie.
— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island, Sincerity
If love is not in the truth I tell, then I’m not telling the whole truth.
Not telling the whole truth reveals the truth that I am not whole.
That I am not whole means I am part of the problem.
When Jesus says Repent, he asks me to own up to that.
Then he says, Follow me and I will make you whole, part of the solution, able to tell the whole truth, love included.
