About

The Website
Truth In the Balance was started in the Fall of 2010 to explore and advocate a zeal for the truth.

In the Bible, Jesus teaches us to love God, self, and others in order to truly live (Luke 10:25-28). Both Scripture and experience demonstrate that this life with God has simple aspects and complex ones - and that the most important principles of life often have to be held in tension. In light of that, the goal of this website is to unpack those principles so we can live life to its fullest.

Ultimately, this is a website about Jesus. That's because he is truth and life and he holds all things together. Whatever wisdom and knowledge there are, they are ultimately found in him, the perfect example for life and savior of the world. The first post gives a fuller introduction if this is your first time here.
