Truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.
  --Flannery O'Conner, writer (1925-1964)

P.1126 - §2 (102:7.2)  God is the one and only self-caused fact in the universe. He is the secret of the order, plan, and purpose of the whole creation of things and beings. The everywhere-changing universe is regulated and stabilized by absolutely unchanging laws, the habits of an unchanging God. The fact of God, the divine law, is changeless; the truth of God, his relation to the universe, is a relative revelation which is ever adaptable to the constantly evolving universe.

(153:2.11)  Jesus stood up and said: "Let us be patient; the truth never suffers from honest examination."
